Dont forget
to say that you've got a roof box to go on the bottom wider deck on the train.

Hi Ian

Is this to drive the circuit? If so how much is it to track your car?

Our trip to the ring.

Is about like minded people out on a driving trip having fun in their cars.

We generally convoy down to the Nurburg area and stay in a hotel that is close to the Nurburgring.

Yes the ring is open to the public on the days that we are staying.

On the trip when the ring is open to the public it becomes a"Public Toll Road" which means your pay 30 euros go to the barrier and off you go on a site seeing trip, commonly known as a TF (touristenfahrten day)
its not a race track and should be treated as such.

Although most of the road is unrestricted as to how fast you go.

Its not all about the ring though the local area has some great scenery and some very nice driving roads.
Have a look at previous ring trip photos and vids it will give you an idea of what we get up to.

I hope this helps, if you have any questions please ask.

This year I am probably taking my Scoob, but probably not going on the Ring, as Ian says it is also about the company and the local surroundings.

Though if you have never been on the Ring before, worth at least getting a passenger lap if nothing else.

You won’t regret going. Firstly a great bunch of like minded people. It’s such a laugh. The scenery and roads around the ring are incredible. When I went I only did a couple of laps and then thoroughly enjoyed watching from various points around the ring, beer in hand

The drive there and back is a big part of it too. I would say to anyone thinking of going, the SES ring trip is the one to go on. It’s brilliantly organised and great fun. I will for sure be going again, but due to young family, owning and expanding business and a love for LeMans (which is only a few weeks apart), it’s not been possible for the last few years for me. I’m doing LeMans again this year but next I think I’ll be joining this trip again.

Steve.

I'd love to join you for this one day, but haven't seen anywhere that says whether kids are allowed to be passengers round the ring? I suppose if it's considered a normal road there shouldn't be a restriction, but has anyone got the definitive answer??

If children were not allowed they would tell you there are no signs saying no children.

On TF days its a public toll road open to any road going vehicle.

Children are definitely allowed

Obviously that is your choice.

You're right, I do
But it doesn't fit with Claire coming due to childcare/getting Ellie to school on the Mon/Tues so unless I work out a last minute plan with a passenger then i'll be missing it this year again....
