Historic Drivers' Paddock

Centrepiece of the german motor sports

The historic Drivers’ Paddock at the Nürburgring was inaugurated at the same time as the racetrack in 1927. It is the oldest surviving pit lane complex anywhere in the world. Now it has been returned to its original condition.

Pit stops are being rebuilt; enamel lamps modelled on old illustrations are being made and rehung in the refurbished pit stops; the pit stop walls and corrugated metal fronts are being redecorated with authentic, old paint mixes; metal signage is being produced and affixed to identify the pit stops. All modern features are being removed or placed in such a way as to be invisible. Use this historic space for your corporate event!

Restoration & reopening:

  • Completed in 1927 on the original opening of the Nürburgring, the arrangement of more than 50 vehicle paddocks in a right angled direction has become a synonym for a paddock system: The historic paddock at the Nürburgring is a motor racing heritage site … a high octane place that has a legendary past … In 2011, the historic paddock dating from 1927 was reopened during an international weekend of celebrations and returned to its original 'pure' purpose.
