GEDLICH Racing - DRIVERS the-trackday-series

9. March 2021 | News


There are many trackdays, the scene is large. Real top trackdays, however, are few and far between. DRIVERS offers only legendary international tracks and limits the number of vehicles rigorously. This ensures optimal conditions and an exclusive ambience in equal measure.

Four tracks from June to October – always over two days

In the inaugural year, there will be four tracks. With Monza, Red Bull Ring, Valencia and Paul Ricard, DRIVERS offers a successful mix of different countries and characteristics. The events will always take place over two days. Drivers and teams can also choose individual locations.

Experienced organizers – two leading event organizers enter into a joint venture

The idea of DRIVERS was born in the dialogue between two well-known greats. Thus DRIVERS is operated in a joint venture of the Europeanspeedclub (ESC) and Gedlich Racing. ESC managing director Danny Pfeil: “The way of working and thinking of the two companies is similar, while our target groups are different. So it made sense to do something together.” Markus Gedlich of Gedlich Racing adds, “In addition, we are close from past times, because I was a trainer there for a few years after ESC was founded, so there is an established relationship of trust.”

Road cars and race cars strictly separated – only 25 and 15 cars respectively

To ensure that newcomers and drivers of road cars find themselves at DRIVERS just as much as professional teams who want to use the international tracks for pure testing, there is a strict separation of the two driving groups. While for street cars (called GTS) there are

will never be more than just 25 cars, the racing group (called GTR) is even limited to just 15 cars. This means that even qualifying simulations, long runs and tire tests for professionals are possible.

Coaching support for sports cars included, rental cars on request

Coaching support is already included in the GTS group (road sports cars). Several coaches are available to share the group of GTS drivers. Thus, over the two days of the event, one coach will always look after approx. 4-5 GTS drivers. The coaches are exclusively seasoned greats with racing and coaching experience.
If you would like to try out a rental sports car instead of your own vehicle, you will find a huge selection at DRIVERS. In addition to street sports cars such as Porsche 911s or McLarens, the organizers offer racing cars of all types. From the production-based GT4 to the LMP3, there are all kinds of possibilities.

Transport, service and supporting program included

So that the inclined driver does not have to worry about anything but his own driving, the organization of DRIVERS offers all the service one could wish for. Vehicle transportation, parts supply, vehicle service, travel planning as well as hotel and dinner packages make the offer round and mean for the customer: arrive, get in and drive off. The organizers keep contingents in special hotels at all locations and know the best locations for the leisure program.
