Winter is a time for hot drinks, warm hats and indoor activities. But sometimes you can get in a bit of Nürburgring Nordschleife action as well. The Nürburgring operators have just released the following Nordschleife winter opening times for November and December...

The 'gap' that you might have spotted after November 25th (that was previously advertsied as another 6 days of full opening) is now set aside for vital maintenance work. Weather permitting.

And that's the final point: weather. Ice, fog, even a touch of frost, all of these will close the track for the day. Normally if it's bad in the morning, the operators will check every hour until about 1pm. If it's still bad, the day is cancelled. Even if it does open, even the driest days will harbour wet patches under the trees. Sometimes you need it to rain to wash away the lingering frost. Of course, some folks do enjoy the Nürburgring Nordschleife in the wet. But most don't.

Do you enjoy BTG?  

BTG is NOT a massive operation; it's just me, my camera and my computer. And a lot of help from my friends and family. Thanks!
