Adrenaline pure. I received the ride with the race taxi as a gift and I must say it was a real experience. I am an enthusiastic motorsport fan and enjoyed every second on the Nordschleife. Absolutely recommendable. Thanks Stein for the Neverkitzel! Greeting Frank
When will you be able to enjoy a ride in one of the rare WIESMANN MF5-GT and then in the green hell. It was simply breathtaking to ride the Nordschleife at the limit. Thank you very much for that.
What is a race taxi anyway?
A genuine motorsport fan will not let anything get out of hand that easily. Could our race taxi change that? At top speeds, passengers can look forward to driving every curve and straight of the Nürburgring to the limit. To guarantee the safety of the co-pilots, the taxi driver himself is a professional racing driver. Due to his racing experience he knows the race track in detail and is able to handle the strongly motorized cars in every situation.
Which cars can I look forward to?
For our passengers there is of course only the best. For this reason, the racing taxi fleet consists, among other things, of a BMW 325i with 218 HP. Whoever is not yet satisfied with this motorization to freeze the blood in the veins can look forward to a Wiesmann Mf 5 GT with no less than 685 HP. The Wiesmann is not only one of the most photographed cars on the Nordschleife, but also one of the most powerful motorized cars worldwide.
Why should I book my taxi ride right here?
To answer this question, we should first go into more detail about the program. Because with us you can look forward to much more than just a taxi ride. In general, taxi rides take place within the training for the VLN and RCN.
Since the races are mainly scheduled on Saturday, our program usually starts on Friday. In order to feel like a real racer and to guarantee safety, the appropriate equipment is of course not missing. This is an overall with helmet and gloves. This is included in our offer. The fitting takes place on Friday at 15:00 o’clock, followed by a 40-minute briefing discussion.
The taxi rides start at 16:00 and go until 18:00 inclusive. A taxi ride corresponds to the duration of one round of the Nürburgring. If you still haven’t had enough of the racing air after that, you have the option of taking part in the “racing Saturday” as well.
For this, the participants can expect a driver’s briefing on Friday evening followed by a joint dinner. In order to start the racing Saturday stronger, the day will be welcomed with a common breakfast. Afterwards the cars will be finished for the race and driven out of the pits. At 8:30 a.m. the qualifying starts, followed by the preparation for the race, which starts at 11:15 a.m. at 12:00 a.m. after the starting grid and lasts until 4:00 p.m.
At 18:00 hrs you can look forward to the award ceremony and will be well looked after by catering in the box.
