Drop that coffee, spit your tea all over the monitor, and exclaim your favourite swear-word at 125dB… the Nürburgring powers-that-be have FINALLY released the public opening times for the old 20.8km Nordschleife!

It’s that time of the year again, when the Nürburgring is opening its doors, setting out its metaphorical stall and making sure that everybody knows just what’s on the menu this year.

I’m not a religious person, but can you give me a hallelujah? Yes, the 2016 Nürburgring Nordschleife Touristenfahrten opening times have landed!

This is only going to be a quick post, but I think it’s an important one. While irrelevant yet irritating speedlimits are damaging the well-deserved reputation of our beloved ‘northloop’, there are a whole bunch of people deciding the fate of our track. And, therefore, the fate of the thousands of people directly (and indirectly) employed by it. Continue reading Take a lap of the ‘Ring in 1955, then think about the future…
Do you want to take your next Nürburgring trackday to the next level with BTG? Of course, the answer is always YES (I hope). That’s why I’m offering you loyal BTG fans a very special deal at the next two trackdays…
Jacky Ickx is no stranger to danger. The six-times Le Mans winner cut his teeth on the ‘old’ circuits, including the Nordschleife.
Regular readers might remember that I played host to YouTube megastar Shmee150 last week.
According to the official Nürburgring website, the new pricing structure for the Nürburgring Nordschleife tourist sessions will NOT be implemented on May 1st, as originally planned.
