Track Days 2017

The handling course is open all day from 10:00 until 17:30 (5:30 p.m.) for your enjoyment. This is a replica of the small Hockenheim circuit with a length of 2.6 km. Divided into two or three groups with maximum 20 cars, 30 minutes sessions will be driven in rotation. This means at least 5 sessions of 30 minutes and a total track time of at least 2,5 hours. During a session the driver can leave and rejoin again the track at the discretion of the driver (or maybe co-driver).

In small groups of maximum 20 vehicles there is ample space on the 2,6 kilometer long and 10 metre wide track for each participant!

Participants & Purpose

The target group of our track days are drivers who want to experience their car on a race track, and/or just to have fun driving their car on the race track. No experience with trackdays is necessary, but in the racing car group & not approved vehicles, we expect a bit of experience from you.

With our track days it's all about the fun and learning about the vehicle.

There are no times taken and there is nothing to win! For this reason, drivers who drive aggressively and thereby  jeopardizing themselves and others will be taken off the track immediately. We make no exceptions and the rules are enforced rigorously. Our track days are no race days and the security of all participants have our strict priority.

A lap timer may be used by yourself. However, Harry's Laptimer and similar smartphone apps are not possible because smartphones are not allowed on the premises due to the camera function. A self-contained 10 Hz GPS lap timer can be optionally borrowed from us (subject to availability) for a few laps.
