Nuerburgring is one of the locations that needs to be on every driver/riders ucket list. The trip out to the ring is spectacular in its scenery, as well as the quality of the roads. Its not cheap to lap, but - well worth the cost. Understand that if you are sucked in by the atmosphere and run full speed, and have an accident - you are responsible not just for your self and your vehicle, but making good any damage to their facility (guard rail, etc), so be aware.
Advice before making a trip: Contact the Ring @ +49 (0) 2691 302 630 or check their website. Remember that the track is frequently booked for other events, and in the off season, weather can be a significant factor (and may close the track). On the way: Make sure that you have adequate fuel; youd be amazed how fast it disappears at speed (Don Ask Me How I Know). Travel with a group, so you are not on your own if there are any issues. During: The track is well maintained, but its LONG, so there CAN be infrequent surface issues. Afterwards: Enjoy a beverage with the locals at any of the local knipen - you never know who youll meet, or what stories youll hear. Germans make many very good beers, some great beers, but NO below average beers! /grin.
