Drive the Nürburgring

Public Days (Touristenfahrten)

Touristenfahrten, or “Public driving”, on the Nürburgring Nordschleife is a tradition that dates back to the very birth of the circuit in 1927. It’s arguably the single most amazing thing about the ‘ring and a major reason for it’s global popularity. Anybody and everybody can be seen lapping the circuit, from motorcycles to camper vans. It’s easy to become addicted to the thrill, but as you get faster you need to consider slowing down in TF and taking the speed to the private and practice days…

TF at a glance…

  • Public road rules apply; speed limits in sections, overtake only on left, road-legal vehicles only.
  • Open several evenings a week and most Sundays
  • Very, very busy! Expect long queues on busy summer weekends.
  • You share the track with motorcycles, vans and even large busses
  • Instruction and taxi laps not allowed by statute.
  • Closures due to serious crashes are very common!
  • Most people who drive the ‘ring, do so in these sessions.
Track Days
Some customers prefer to drive the track in closed sessions rather than during the public ‘Touristenfarhten’ days. Public sessions can be very busy, especially at the weekend and this can lead to closures and limiting track time. Other users can be less considerate or lack the experience to appreciate the hazards the Nordschleife presents. Why not choose instead to book a trackday? Avoid the other traffic, the closures and the crowds and experience the track as never before.
Attending a trackday involves the purchase of an entry with either your own car or you can rent one from RSR. Depending on the event, track time varies from a few hours to a full day. The venue is normally the Nürburgring Nordschleife, the GP Circuit, or occasionally both combined. The track is hired for the day by the trackday organiser and there are a limited number of places available, reducing the traffic on track.

If you are interested in renting one of our cars for a dedicated track day, take a look in our car garage.  If not, you can just purchase your track day entry through us.

Our professional instruction is available to you regardless of whether you choose to bring your own car or rent one of ours.
