Tickets & Advanced Booking

What days are included in a weekend ticket?

Unless otherwise stated in the order form, a weekend ticket is always automatically valid from Friday to Sunday.

If I order several tickets, will the seats be allocated next to each other?

If several tickets are ordered together on one invoice, they will certainly be allocated together. Should it no longer be possible, for example shortly before the race, we will let you know beforehand and you can decide whether you would like to go to another stand.

Can I reserve specific seats in advance?

Specific requests for seats can certainly be noted on the booking and will definitely be taken into account when processing the booking; however, we cannot guarantee specific seats.

Can I order additional tickets at a later date?

As long as your original booking has not yet been processed, this is not a problem. Please state the date of your first booking when making the additional booking. The tickets will then be issued together (you’ll sit together) and sent out together (with just one shipping fee).

Can I get a discount for ordering multiple tickets?

Unfortunately, we cannot give any discount for group orders.

When and how are the tickets sent out?

The tickets are normally sent out by registered letter 2-4 weeks after payment has been received. However, this cannot be guaranteed for every race event. The latest shipping date is Tuesday of the respective race week.

Are there any discounts for wheelchair users?

Wheelchair users have free entrance, the accompanying person pays in full. However, only one numbered seat is guaranteed. Please indicate the exact number of persons in each group when ordering. You can also apply for a separate parking space by sending in a copy of your Disabled ID Card.

How much is the entrance fee for small events at the weekend?
  • Stands: 8,00 €

Information And Rules

Class classification

Everyone can join in and everyone has a chance! Of course, there are differences in performance, i.e. “weaker and stronger”, but that doesn’t matter on Public Race Days, as cars are classified into time classes. So a David horsepower will not drive against a Goliath horsepower. The fastest of the day per class will then receive a trophy.

Public race classes:

  • Public race cars up to 1600 ccm
  • Public race cars from 1600 ccm
  • Public race bikes
  • VW challenge

Non road-legal cars – technical approval on site required (brakes, types, steering and belts check). Drivers whose cars run the quarter mile in under 10.00 seconds are obliged to wear a race suit and helmet.

What do I need to do?

ACCESS FOR PARTICIPANTS

Access is via the Conti roundabout via the registration for the “Querspange” race track section. From the “Querspange”, participants in the starting classes will be guided over the “Sachskurve” to the starting area.

PARKING FOR PARTICIPANTS

Until your class goes to start, you can park your car in the Querspange.

HELMETS REQUIRED

It is also mandatory to wear a helmet when driving your car. Should anyone not have a helmet, we have them available for a refundable deposit (€100 + ID or driver’s licence). Balaclavas for the helmets must be purchased (price €5 per item).

PROTECTIVE CLOTHING

For safety reasons, only bikers with suitable protective clothing can take part in the sprint races.

PASSENGERS

No passengers are allowed on Public Race Days.

Do I need a licence?

Firstly, of course, you need a valid driver’s licence. That is quite clear. As part of the Public Race Days, you can participate as a private driver (public racer) without a licence.

When does it start?

Access to the driver’s paddock is possible from 8am on Saturday and from 8.30am on Sunday. You’ll get all necessary information for the procedure there as well as a start number for training and racing. Please note: you cannot take part without a start number! Times achieved can be seen at the grid.
