Talking Had a great Nurburg Ring weekend

Hi all,

I went to the Ring with a friend. As he did not have experience on the Ring, and neither did I, I contacted a garage just next to the entrance.

The garage is called RSR and I arranged for:
* Car check (fluids, brakes, tires, etc)
* Have them co-pilot to help us learn the track
* Tickets for the Ring

and we did a Eifel Drive and Track walk to see the neighborhood.
All that came in at a reasonable price. The walk we wont do again, but the service and co-pilot where of great value.

For anybody wanting to have a visit and a great time I would recommend them strongly.

Languages: Dutch, English, German


So we had a great time and I loved driving on the Ring.
Very challenging to get the line, but oooooh, so much fun!

Sure ... GTR check was 60€, and that included a top-up ...
For the AMG it was 50€, no top-up needed as it came out of regular maintenance the week before.

Checked:
* All fluids
* Tires
* Disks and pads
* General state of vehicule


Really great people. Ferrari, Pagani and other also work with them.
They also rent RHD + LHD Lotus Exige S, Porsche GT3, M3, etc
Specialized in RHD customers (UK, Australia, Japan, HongKong, ...)
The german car magazine GRIP lets cars also check by them before going out.

Co-Driver is about 50€ for an hour i think, see web page below:

My friend is a close buddy or Ron Simons who owns RSR. They have a top quality workshop and it's just around the corner from the entrance. I would definitely recommend them for their knowledge of the ring.

Nice one Casper this is something that's on my 101 things to do before I die

It's good to know that professional tuition and support is available at a reasonable cost..

Once my car is built, the Nurburgring is the first stop after Santa pod

Alex, as good as RSR might be, I'd speak to Colin and Jo at CATDT. They can arrange tuition at millbrook AND the Ring and they've got huge amounts of GTR experience. Lovely people too

Just returned from a couple of days at the Nurburgring. First time ever out there and decided to use RSR Nurburg... top people, good service, very conveniently placed. Hired an R26R Megane RHD from them. Which was amazingly quick (semi slicks included) round there when driven properly (not by me, but on a hot lap!). We had a Vbox fitted too and took internal/external and telemetry DVD's home
Sun pm was TF and slashed down with rain, how slippy / scary was that for your first time out! but certainly taught you respect. Nutters on bikes and in camper vans ended up littering the armco.
Mon was a trackday.de day, unbelievable amount of top cars there (every other being a GT3RS btw) and great weather - I can honestly say it was the best driving experience to date for me and my lads.
Must now take the GTR, will certainly in 2012 so will be looking for GTROC organised events (or CATDT).
For anyone not yet gone there, you would be very well advised to do a hundred or so laps on Gran Turismo 5 first. Not that you get the cambers or elevation change feeling, but the directions the corners go and what follows them is essential knowledge to go fast... it was the reason YoungBob kicked my butt big style time wise (he's done thousands of laps on the PS3...or so I'm claiming ;-) he did manage one lap less than 9mins in his first ever 6 laps which wasn't too shabby though.
Anyway great experience and RSR were well worth it

CATDT should be mandatory for all GTR owners that want to track the car or even exploit its potential.

I will need to get my next booster jab next year.

By far the best driver training I have ever had
