The Nürburgring has been sold to German automotive firm Capricorn Group for a figure totalling over €100m, including €25m of investment in the current infrastructure promised.

Capricorn will launch a new company called Capricorn Nürburgring to handle the new business from January 1st 2015. Their plans include relocating the roller coaster to another town in the region, scrapping the maligned ring card payment system, and remodelling the current Eifeldorf as a silverstone style technology park.

iemand een idee of het een goede deal is?

publiek had beter geweest, maar ik denk dat dit de beste realistische optie is.

Ze gaan mogelijks de ring wel moeten uitmelken om hun investering eruit te krijgen.
En ik vraag het af hoe het zit met de verzekering op touristenfahrt, toen het een openbare door de staat gerunde tolweg was, was er geen probleem. Maar nu? Iedereen een helmke op en afstand van verhaal tekenen?

Capricorn is an engine parts engineering company, makers of many high performance racing parts, connecting rods, pistons, liners, heads, OE supplier to Porsche and Aston Martin. But also they prepare and tune race cars, Porsches specifically. Capricorn has a test center at the Nürburgring and management is all into racing.

"As an enthusiastic motor sport fan, the Nürburgring has always been a passion of mine. We have identified the enormous potential of this unique race venue and would like to optimize the existing structures but above all turn the vision of an Automotive Technology Cluster into reality" Said Robertino Wild, managing partner for the Capricorn Group.

Capricorn Group has bases in Charlotte, North Carolina, Anzola dell'Emilia, near Modena and
Basingstoke in the UK, not far from Woking, all these are hotbeds of high tech race based auto engineering.

Hard to argue for a better buyer of the legendary track.

Sorry, topic niet echt gevolgd (enkel met de nodige dosis jaloezie naar de foto's gekeken vooral) en ook niet echt gebruik gemaakt van Google om eerlijk te zijn. Ga dus vooral voor de first-hand-experiences en recht-voor-de-raap-antwoorden hier... Maar zijn daar eigenlijk speciale vereisten aan verbonden om op de Ring te mogen rijden? Zou daar wel eens met mijn Astra op willen rondtuffen, vandaar.

Dat mag, ja. Touristenfahrten, zolang je maar niet in de weg loopt.

Important totally 100% true facts to note:

Sabine's SP9 class car is one of the fastest cars on the grid, a lot of these backmarkers at that very start are in far inferior cars.
But it doesn't matter what your car is, if you can't drive. Sabine can DRIVE!
She is driving on SLICKS... yes, slicks. In wet/dry conditions. Local knowledge + talent + car = WIN.
The pit lane had radio'd Sabine to tell her that the fridge was broken and her Fröh Kolsch was getting warm. This is the real reason why she was keen to finish her stint quickly.

Hmm bij rally zou ik zeggen "risico van het vak", maar als je naar de Nurburgring gaat kijken veronderstel ik wel dat je veilig staat.
Niet dus

Het lijkt er wel op dat de slachtoffers tussen de catchfencing en de gewone hekken stonden, een soort bufferzone dus waar eigenlijk niemand mag komen. Nu is meteen duidelijk waarom het niet de bedoeling is dat iemand daar komt.

Als zoiets gebeurt zal het wel op Flugplatz zijn ja.
GT-R zal waarschijnlijk een aerodyanmisch mankement hebben, is niet nieuw zoiets. Erg jammer wel.

Strak plan om tussen 2 hekkens te staan waar je langs geen kanten weg kan geraken.

Sunday’s public session was rudely interrupted by a disgruntled tractor driver, who tried to drive on to the Nürburgring Nordschleife while alledgedly shouting all manner of obscenities…
