Idea AO Nurburgring 2007

Following on from the success of this years trip to the 'ring' and the recent thread trying to gauge interest for next year I have decided to help with the organisation for 2007.

PeterK will be arranging accommodation at our final destination, the important bit, but I'll try and get everyone together this side of the water and provide details of expected cost of Ferries, Channel Tunnel, Date's and Times and anything else I have forgotten to mention. (TB don't think you'll get a quiet ride here I shall be calling on your vast experience!! )

I've come up with a nice little logo, any comments welcome, be careful though as kindly assistance was provided by our site owner!!!!!

Initial Plan would be to travel over to meet with those members who are completing the Driver Training Course at the Ring which finishes on the 13th May.

PeterK has suggested that we get as finalised as a list as possible before the end of this year so that we can guarantee we are all staying in the same hotel...

So do we have some real interest? I shall start the ball rolling

Re: AO Nurburgring 2007

As Matt mentioned I will sort out accomodation, book restaurants, keep the Hotel booking list updated and other practical arrangements.

Hotels and B&B's around the Ring is not very expensive. There is only one International Hotel in the Area,which costs from 115 euro and upwards.. Otherwise the price range is from about 45 Euro to 80 Euro for a double room.

The room standard is simple but clean. Most include small TV & small Fridge.

Last year the AO group stayed at a very pleasant Hotel in Adenau Village, which is located about 15min drive from the Entrance to the Track.

For this years trip my suggestion is that we stay with the Hotel owned by the Schmitz family (Sabine Schmitz) Hotel Am Tiergarten This is a very poplular hotel with the Ringers crowd.

Pistenklause which is the Ringers favorite Restaurant is located in the same building as the Hotel, and also run by the Schmitz family.

The Hotel is located in Nurburg Village, 1-2km from the Track Entrance.

Those of us who are doing the Ring Training may 9-12 will already be staying at the Hotel Am Tiergten. Our room rate was 75,00 Euro for a double room /one person, so expect about the same for a double /two persons. There might be charge for the extra person/bed linnen though.

If we base the Trip on a three night stay like last year, then the Hotel costs would be around 120 Euro / £82 per person if you share a double room. I will of course try to get a group discount for us.

The current suggestion is for the Tour to take place around may 12-16

One way could be to depart UK Saturday may 12,arriving early evening. Then drive at the track Sunday+Monday and head home on Tuesday.

Other way could be to depart UK Sunday, do the track Monday+Tuesday and head home Wednesday.

At this point there are several key questions which can not be answered, the main one being the opening hours of the Track. The Schedule will only be released around end january next year.

The Tricky part is to find accomodation in Nurburg Village (and certainly at Hotel Am Tiergarten) if we book in feb/march.

If we can come to an agreement on time and place for the Tour before Christmas, then I am personally in favour of booking well in advance. This way we stand a good chance of finding rooms for everyone under the same roof, and we can always cancel the booking if things dont work out the way we expected.

Matt, I have been a bit out of luck for the circuit map. The best is attached - which I suspect is where you got yours in the first place. The usual practice is to include the GP track on these silhouettes, otherwise they look odd with the funny loop after Hohenrain, which is not open on the Touristenfahrten days, and this is in fact what initially drew my "looks a bit odd" comment . Really, it does not look odd at all, please stick with what you have, and keep up the good work


I'll get my coat.

Re: AO Nurburgring 2007

Added myself to the list.

I have proceeded with my Sabattical plan mentioned in another thread (am starting in a few weeks ), so can't 100% guarantee my presence at this point but think it would be fairly likely assuming we get a useful cluster of public days.

Cheers,
TB

Re: AO Nurburgring 2007

It's possible that I go to the ring that day, as I do it sometimes on sundays.

Hoping to meet you guys then, but it's still a long way to go

Re: AO Nurburgring 2007

I' d like to discuss the idea of Tour Clothing.

Based on the clothes i've had made for our Trackdayclub, i pretty much know the costs involved. My idea would be to have a (Red?) Fleece or Polo done with Tour logo. The Fleece in the photos is the one had done for the Trackdayklub. It is a very good quality Fleece BTW.

Depending on how complicated the logo will be, the costs should be less then £30 per Fleece if we order 12-15. This includes one off cost for their start up fees(to make the logo program etc..)

If we want a Polo Shirt the same logo program can be used, thus no start up fee. Same for any following orders. (2008 Tour) I think a Polo can be made for about £20.

What do you think?

We could easily add the nurburring map logo and text to the AO fleeces if this is of interest to you?
