The cooperation will extend far beyond the current rent of the circuit. Joint sales and marketing activities are included as well as transparent accounting models and revenue models that enable an economic activity for all partners. Race organizers and literally sit in the same boat.

“That’s why for example is those already planned and announced increase of prices back rides to tourists, “said Hans-Joachim Koch. “The myth reveals Nurburgring best used as driver or passenger on the Nordschleife. We will continue to make this experience a large circle of fans at a reasonable price. And why raise the prices have improved, if not yet offer service quality? Safety comes first and must be continuously optimized, but that is clearly understood and to always-investment funds are available. As long as weather conditions allow, to the so-called Touristenfahrten reliably held every day of the year, either on the Nordschleife and the Grand Prix circuit. ”
