Itinerary



The VLN

VLN or ‘Veranstaltergemeinschaft Langstreckenpokal Nürburgring’ or ‘Community Long Distance Cup’ – in English is a series of 9 races over the year ranging between 4 & 6 hour races. The VLN circuit used incorporates a combination of the smaller Nurburgring Grand Prix circuit and the large Nordschleife creating a circuit length of 16.1 miles and over 170 corners.  Competitors of VLN races range from amateurs in small road legal cars racing cars through to professional factory teams racing the latest GT3 cars. This combination of classes lead to grids in excess of 200 cars which is truly a spectacle to witness!

For the 2018 season, we have partnered with David Pittard an up and coming star of motorsport.

The VLN Weekend

CGT and DPM LTD have combined forces to bring you a weekend (Friday-Sunday) of hospitality, motorsport, and even the opportunity to drive the world-famous circuit in your own car on ‘Touristenfahrten’ or ‘tourist ride’ laps.

Classic Grand Touring will organise all travel arrangements including a Flexiplus Eurotunnel crossing and your hotel in Nurburg. Upon our arrival to Nurburg on Friday evening, we will check into our hotel and meet David for a dinner where he will give a talk about the weekend ahead as part of a meet a greet session.

On Saturday you will have the opportunity to watch some practice sessions followed by a catch up with David ahead of the race. We will then complete a grid walk of the entire VLN grid soaking up the atmosphere ahead of the endurance race.  Once the race begins, you will have the opportunity to spectate the race from multiple locations as part of a guided tour around the 16-mile circuit as well as having access to our own private hospitality with catering above the pit straight.

Following the race on Saturday evening, we will once again meet with David in our private hospitality suite for a debrief before heading to dinner in a local famous restaurant.

On Sunday morning you have the opportunity to drive the world famous circuit for yourself as part of the Touristenfahrten session. You will also have the opportunity to enjoy a lap in the passenger seat of David’s very own Lotus Elise as well as having some in-car tuition too.

We have the option of either returning to Calais at 2 pm on Sunday or if preferred, you can extend your stay for an additional night, returning to Calais on Monday morning.
