There’s quite a bit new here at Green Hell Guides.
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.
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.
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.
I'd promised a Green Hell Guides 2016 tour report on our Green Hell Guides Facebook page a while ago, so here it is! You may recall that we were soliciting for candidates to join our June/July tours a couple of months ago. We have pictures and video below, so read on!
I have a couple of potential tours coming up that have a few spots left. Read on if you are thinking about a Nürburgring vacation and tour in June or July of 2016. Both include VLN races, driving on The Ring and other epic automotive adventures!
For those that may have been following on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram feeds, you knew Green Hell Guides was at the recent 24 Hours of Nürburgring. My dad and brother were with me for the race and my dad stayed on several days after for what would be pretty typical of one of our guided tour itineraries. Below, I'll detail what we did, share some impressions and a few photos. Overall, it was a fantastic trip!
We may be a bit quiet over the holidays, so I wanted to wish all of you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! If you hadn’t heard, the public session calendar through May 2015 is now available.
Over the holiday break we’ll be analyzing that to see if our spring/summer tour will fall in that period. Stay tuned!
Good question! What does a Green Hell Guides typical Nürburgring tour itinerary look like? Using our upcoming trip to the 24 Hours of Nürburgring in May as an example, here you go:
This question generally comes from two different perspectives:
1) You're a motorsport, automotive or motorcycle enthusiast, but you don't have a lot of track driving experience and you're a bit intimidated by the world's most challenging racetrack. You want to experience all The Ring has to offer, but you're not certain you want to be behind the wheel on the Nordschleife.
2) You're a spouse, partner, significant other or friend of somebody who REALLY wants to go to The Nürburgring and you've agreed to (or are considering to agreeing to) come along on the trip.
So people keep asking me this question and I wanted to address it. It will be in the Spring of 2015 and likely in May or June. I’d like to get more specific, but the schedule of Nürburgring tourist days 2015 will not get posted until late February or early March. Once the calendar is provided, Green Hell Guides will set the dates, publicize the tour and begin soliciting participants.
Keep in mind that you’re welcome to put a deposit down to hold your place even before the dates are set and the deposit is 100% refundable. Also remember that you can have Green Hell Guides help you plan your own individual trip to The Nürburgring if you’d prefer to go by yourself or with your own group instead of with our small group of enthusiasts.
