New Logo, New Tour, New Ads!

There’s quite a bit new here at Green Hell Guides.

New Logo:

First up, those who follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram may have noticed our new logo as seen above. I decided it was time for a change from the image we’d been using on our business cards, shirts, etc. This new logo is meant to be a nod to classic US National Park patches on ranger uniforms, the classic Nürburgring logo and the Faszination Nürburgring logo. Looking at them below hopefully you can see the influence.

Faszination Nurburgring Logo

I also added a new slogan to the bottom- “Master – Respect – Preserve”. This echoes our philosophy about the Nürburgring. We strive to master it, but always respect it- lest it bite you! Finally, we are always concerned with preserving it for future generations of enthusiasts and ensuring its ongoing viability for both enthusiasts and the locals that depend on it for their livelihood.

New Tour:

24 Hours of Nurburgring logo

Next up, I wanted to make everyone aware of an upcoming tour in May, 2018 for the 24 hour race. This is our first scheduled 2018 tour. It’s the perfect 24 Hours of Nurburgring vacation2018 24 Hours of Nurburgring vacation2018 24 Hours of Nurburgring vacation! We have a handful of spots available at this point, so contact [email protected] if you’re interested in details and pricing.

The current itinerary includes the 24 hour race, taxi laps, driving during public laps, a day trip to the Porsche and Mercedes museums, a road tour and a stop at Spa Francorchamps. As always, it will be an epic automotive adventure!

Finally, you may have noticed that our blog posts have some Amazon links to the right (or at the bottom on smartphones). These are handpicked Nürburgring products I think our followers will like and purchasing through these links does give Green Hell Guides a small commission. Please check these products out.
