Most of the time, the Nürburgring gets brought to my attention because some manufacturer was there and set a really fast, lightning-quick lap time and wants us all to know about it because car sales. It’s not always Very Serious Car Drivers there all the time, though! It actually does get fun!
During open track days, you can bring your own car to play around with on the track. Most drivers bring their sports cars, which I totally understand. But other times, other drivers roll up in unique stuff.
It’s great. You’ll see vans, ex-police cruisers and limos, to name a few. These are the track days that I want to be a part of.
