    After seeing top gear a couple of weeks back where Jeremy took that Jag Diesel to the RING i have been wondering how much it would cost to get me and my car over there.

    Has anyone here done it? and how much did it cost them in total?

    Is it true the RING is classed as a public road and therefore you dont need special track day cover? or is that just wishfull thinking?

    And is if €14 per lap?

    thanks

    Last time I asked, lap cost was €13 and it IS classified as a public toll road. German insurance companies tend to exclude it by name, but I don't think UK companies have reached that point yet /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Yes, I was going to organise a trip for Audi sport peeps to swing on by out there, but would need enough interest.

    It would be down to peeps though to organise there own transport to the ring and sleeping arrangments, but we could say a specific day for people to arrange a date too.

    Well no - but that would be a good idea if it was possible or say a time slot.

    why would we need enough interest then if were not gonna book the track?

    surely even if there were just 5 or6 or us we could convoy over there and spend a few days in the area and on the RING?

    Fair point guys, well organise it, I have to wait 2 weeks now as I have been caught speeding "I think" and could be a possible ban as I was well over the ton mark!
