A German BMW owners club is running its annual five-day Nurburgring training course at the famous track and has opened it up to all makes of bike for the first time since it started in 1964.

Popular demand
BMW Club Mülheim-Ruhr is hosting the 47th course which will take place between August 2 and 6 and, in response to popular demand, the course is now open to all makes of motorcycles.

No public traffic
Participants will have exclusive use of the Nürburgring for the duration of the course (public traffic is excluded), and training will take place on both the Nordschleife and the Grand Prix track.

The course includes a mix of intensive training within sections of the Nordschleife, after which the ‘ideal line’ is then put into practice during frequent total lapping sessions.

assenger laps in cars are also available to help view the track from a different perspective and aid learning and remembering its twists and turns.

Each participant will be individually assessed, and prizes will be awarded at a gala dinner on the final evening.

This course is not a race school, and it is suitable for riders of all abilities, from quick to steady, and for all types of machine, from touring to sports bikes. 

Instruction is in English by Nürburgring instructors who, between them, have decades of Nordschleife experience.

Availability is limited, and so early booking is recommended – spaces are allocated on a strictly first come, first served basis.  Entries close on 31st May 2009.
The entry fee is €1,390.00 per rider, €250.00 per pillion.
