Nürburgring and Hockenheimring
(back to: German Cars and Automobile History)
Hockenheimring and the Nürburgring are the two race tracks where you can experience the thrill of high speed racing. Both race tracks offer race enthusiasts race & training packages either as a passenger next to a professional in a professional race car (like Porsche, Mercedes, etc.) or to learn how to master their own car.
Located in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, near Koblenz. You can drive your own car or rent one to experience the “Green Hell” as the race track is referred to and check out what your time for the “Nordschleife” is.
Located in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, near Heidelberg.
May be not as famous as the Nürburgring but another great experience — here you can also either book a ride with a professional driver or experience self-driving of a high end car. Check out the website of Hockenheimring: www.hockenheimring.de/en
European Delivery (pickup at manufacturer’s plant) of your new car?
May be you just picked up your own Mercedes or Porsche, Audi or BMW at the manufacturer plant? The manufacturers have come up with real attractive delivery packages often including dinners, hotels, airline tickets, factory visit, attraction and museum visits, factory-to-garage delivery and so on.
The delivery packages may also include the ultimate test experience of your new car on a professional race course.
For example, if you pickup your new Porsche at the factory in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen they, as part of the entire package which includes many more nice things, will invite you for test drive on the famous Grand-Prix Hockenheimring or if you pickup your Cayenne in Leipzig you will get the chance to experience the car on their own off-road test course. Offers may change, so take this just as an idea…
