Licences for co-pilot rides

Tender for licenses for co-pilot rides for the years 2021 to 2023

For the years 2021-2023 the Nürburgring 1927 GmbH & Co. KG (NG) is granting four licenses for the performance of co-pilot rides as a part of tourist rides on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. The licenses authorize the operation of two vehicles per licensee. Each licensee can only acquire one license. The validity of the licenses is limited to the years 2021-2023.

The granting of licenses is subject to the following procedural conditions:

1. Licenses for co-pilot rides will only be issued to interested parties who accept the "Licensing requirements for providers of co-pilot rides as part of the tourist rides on the Nürburgring Nordschleife", as well as the sample agreement. The approval requirements and the sample agreement can be found on this page under the “Documents” section. 


2. The interested parties must submit their offer by no later than January 20, 2021 4 p.m. The aforementioned deadline is a cut-off deadline. Tenders received after this deadline will not be considered. Decisive for the timeliness of the offer is the receipt by the NG (not the dispatch by the interested party). The interested parties have two communication channels available for the submission of their offers.

  • The offer can be sent in writing to the following address:
    Nürburgring 1927 GmbH & Co. KG, for the attention of Sarah Nick,
    Otto-Flimm-Straße, 53520 Nürburg.
  • The offer can be sent to the following e-mail address:

Offers submitted in any other form (e.g. verbal) are not permitted and will not be considered.

3. The following documents must be submitted with the offer at the latest:

  • The legally binding signed approval requirements for providers of co-pilot rides as part of the tourist rides on the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
  • A letter stating the binding net offer amount of the interested party for the acquisition of a license to operate a maximum of two Co-Pilot cars on the Nürburgring Nordschleife for the 2021-2023 seasons. The net offer sum must amount to at least EUR 20,000 per season plus VAT. Offers that are below this amount will be excluded from the procedure.


The contract will be awarded to the four interested parties who have submitted the highest net bid with their offer. If several interested parties submit the same net bid amount, the lot will decide between these interested parties. The drawing of lots takes place under notarial supervision. The interested parties are admitted to this draw and will be notified accordingly.



The interested parties are requested to pay attention to the following additional information:

  • The Nordschleife of the Nürburgring may be closed to tourists (for example, for weather or safety reasons). In the event of a blockage, the licensee will not be able to perform the co-pilot rides. The licensee is not entitled to have the track opened for tourist rides for a certain number of days.
  • If you have any questions, please contact the following persons exclusively by e-mail:

  • For legal or contractual queries: Carsten Paas,

  • The license is valid for two fixed designated vehicles. The vehicles must be announced by the beginning of the upcoming season.

The licensee can also nominate a replacement vehicle which may be used during the license period if the designated vehicle cannot be used (technical defect or similar).
