IBAN DE84 5085 2553 0016 0905 57

Please state your name and the event in the intended purpose. Your place will only be secured and confirmed after receipt of payment. You will receive an invoice from us and further information in good time before the event.

What happens if I cannot attend the event unexpectedly?

We have various cancellation deadlines in accordance with our General Terms and Conditions (see Downloads). To protect yourself against cancellation payments, book cancellation insurance with our partner. See above on this page.

Is my car insured during the event?

Our Nordschleifentrainings are sportive driving safety trainings, which are not advertised to achieve maximum speeds or best times. With many insurance companies, your insurance and comprehensive cover is fully maintained. Please inquire with your insurer.

If my insurance does not work, can I insure my car separately?

Yes, there is trackday comprehensive insurance. See above on this page.

Can I bring a companion, second driver or children who will also be on the track?

For second drivers or co-drivers (= guests) we have booking possibilities, please see our booking form. Children aged 16 and over are allowed on the route as co-drivers, provided that you, as parent, assume responsibility for this. We ask for a written waiver of liability, to be handed in at the accreditation/orga.

Does my vehicle have to be road legal in order to participate in the event?

At our Nordschleifentrainings you are only allowed to drive with road legal vehicles. Short-term license plates and H-plates are permitted, but red license plates are not.

Do I need a helmet and a racing suit to participate in the event?

Our Nordschleifentrainings are sportive driving safety trainings, which are not advertised to achieve maximum speeds or best times. A helmet is mandatory, but a racing suit is not, but is recommended. Helmets can be rented for 10 € on the day of the event. You may have to bring your own racing suit.

If I need service (tyres, brakes …), can I get it on site?

GEDLICH Racing offers technical support at almost all locations. Please ask for the current technical team.

If I need support in learning the track, can I book 1:1 Coaching® on site?

In principle, yes. We always try to keep some overcapacity on coaches. In order to avoid that you do not enjoy your desired coaching or scope, please book in advance.

Can I spontaneously book a rental sports car on site?

In principle yes, but since most of our sports cars are booked in advance and are therefore heavily frequented, we ask you to make a fixed booking in advance.

Are there any noise limits during the events which could ensure that my car is excluded from the event?

The Nordschleife has limited noise limits. However, our especially exclusive concept (few cars on the track) ensures that we don’t consume the noise quota. So far it never happened during our events that we had to stop an event prematurely or exclude a vehicle. If you are unsure about the emission of your vehicle, please write it in the comments field when booking and we will get back to you for advice.

Can I buy a racing license at GEDLICH Racing Trackdays?

At most of our Trackdays we offer license courses for the acquisition of the national license level A. Please use the booking form of the Trackdays.
