A single lap around the Nürburgring-Nordschleife will now cost you $32 (€24)

Track fees are going up at the Nürburgring circuit in Germany for the 2011 season.

Still, it may come as a surprise to most that the Nurburgring is open to the public for a fee of $32 (€24) for single lap around the full length of the track - known as the Nordschleife or Green Hell with 170 curves and measuring 25.378 km/15.77 miles in distance.

That's up from a single lap price of $29 (€22) this year.

Yes, the track at the Nürburgring can be used by anyone when it is not reserved by automakers for testing or for other racing events. There's also a Ring Taxi for those who want a rush but don't trust their own skills.

For a fee of $119 (€89) you get four laps and it includes a meal ticket for the on-site restaurant and a free entry to the Ring Werk Museum.

A 15-lap package can be had for $415 (€310), 25 laps will cost you $629 (€470).

A season pass is available for $1,800 (€1,346).

Agree with all of you. It's still a bargain on one of the world's most demanding and rewarding tracks. How cool is it to be able to run yourself on a track that saw the likes of Moss, Lauda, Stewart or Rindt run in F1? And the best thing for them is that they're sustaining themselves. I didn't check it out in detail, but I don't think that they're getting funds from the local authorities or from the land of Rheinland-Pfalz. Other European "historical" tracks that are struggling for finances (such as Spa Francorchamps) shuold take example and lower the track fees, thus opening more to the general public.
