Green light for the VLN!

This season Europe’s most popular mass sport series will again be starting ten times on the most beautiful and most difficult racetrack in the world - the Nürburgring with its legendary Nordschleife.

Spectators will again be able to look over the shoulder of the teams as they do their work in the pits – but only as long as the engines are not running, for then all attention has to be focussed on what is happening on the track. And this motorsport experience around the Nordschleife is free of charge!
