    A weekend could easily total 800 with hotel/BnB/farm yard, food and drink and of course FUEL

    Not to mention - insurance for abroad, breakdown cover is a good idea etc etc

    Search on here - its all been covered before.
    That said - someone went up for a day before too

    dont forget there are hefty fines aswell, like going on the grass = fine and oil on the track = fine , also mega trouble if you crash !! and you dont have recovery they will hold your car and charge a daily rate of something rediculous

    Nurburgring GmbH has announced that the following penalties will be applied this year ...
    Overtaking on the right:
    Report to the police, fine, 1-day ban

    Aggressive driving, pressuring/dangering others:
    1-day ban

    Excessive speed at flagged points, endangering marshalls:
    1-day ban, repeat offenders will be banned for the season

    Deliberate off-roading, or failing to report dirt on the track:
    1-day ban

    Repeated offenses against the camera ban:
    Season ban! Note that the ban forbids on-track stills as well as video.

    Deliberate carrying on with a fluid leak:
    Season ban, plus charges for cleaning and track closure time

    Price in Euros
    Discount
    Single lap
    €22

    4 laps
    €75
    -15%

    -29%
    Jahreskarte
    €1,075
    Equivalent cost of 49 individual laps or say 3-5 weekends



    Exchange rates are volatile, so I've removed the conversions as they get out of date so quickly. A currency converter is here.
    All tickets, including Jahreskartes, are valid for the the calendar year. Note calendar year, not for 12 months, so they expire on 31st December.


    If you want to get an idea of all-in costs for a weekend trip, for a 'standard' weekend (out Fri, full day Saturday, half-day Sunday, return Sun afternoon/eve) from London by car, the costs look something like this:
    • Channel crossing: Varies, but say typically 120
    • Petrol en-route: Typically 2 x 60 = 120
    • Petrol for the Ring: Say 90
    • Bed-and-breakfast per person: 25 per night x 2 = 50
    • Food: 2 x dinner, 2 x lunch, food en-route, beer = 100
    • 25-lap ticket = 232
    • Total = approx 700
    Of course, these costs get disguised a bit as you usually pay for the ferry some way in advance, and pay for petrol with cards and thus don't get that bill until later.
    Once you have your Jahreskarte, the cost per weekend drops to around 500. In terms of Euros, you can use credit and debit cards for petrol, Ring tickets and food (in most places) but you'll want cash for accommodation costs and miscellaneous bits & pieces. It's usually cheapest to get cash at a local cash-machine.
    Optional extras available at additional cost include armco repairs, safety car attendance, vehicle recovery, track closure, hospital stays and helicopter rides. I recommend avoiding these. If you can't, then the following price-list may help:
    • Base fee for attendance of armco truck: €150
    • Removing damaged armco: €10/metre (x2 or x3 or x4 for multiple-height sections)
    • Replacement armco: €31/metre (x2 or x3 for double/triple height)
    • Removing damaged armco posts: €5.10 each
    • Replacing armco post: €39 each
    • Safety car attendance: €82 per 30 mins (car + 2 people)
    • Circuit closure: €1,350 per hour
    • Recovery truck: €190 (inc VAT)
    • Hospital stay & air ambulance: Let's just say, do NOT go there without travel insurance! (Though a European Health Card - which replaced the E111 - may cover the hospital bit.)
    Everything except the recovery truck is then subject to 19% VAT.
    The record armco bill I'm aware of is €15,000. That was a car that managed to flatten a very impressive length of armco between the Quiddlebacher Hohe bridge and the crest on the approach to Flugplatz. But even a minor bump can turn into a surprisingly expensive day out.


    A Jahreskarte ('year card') is a season ticket valid for unlimited use by the cardholder within the calendar year. Jahreskarts are also valid only when the Jahreskart holder is driving/riding. They are not valid when you are a passenger, even if you are a passenger in your own car. The transponder is for the driver/rider, not the vehicle. They do sometimes check the photo, and confiscate cards and transponders which are being misused, so it's not adviseable to take chances.
    The procedure for buying a Jahreskarte is to turn up with cash or credit card, a passport-sized photo and your passport. At quieter times, they will issue your card immediately; at busier times, they will keep your passport and lend you a temporary 5-lap ticket. Go back 5 laps later and swap your temporary ticket for your passport and Jahreskarte. To renew an existing one, just take your existing card and the dosh. Note that although they have a digital camera there, it isn't always working, so it's best to take your own photo with you just in case.

    The Jahreskarte itself is only an identity document. To open the barrier, you get a watch-style transponder. The transponder is coded with your ID card number, and random checks are made to prevent misuse.
    The transponders have a theoretical range of 8cm, but in reality you often have to almost touch the transponder pad, which can be difficult when on your wrist in a car with harnesses. Most of us put it around the gearstick or hang it round our neck to


    just a small bit of info on all what i said lol
