Whether you are starting to explore driving the Nürburgring, or you have done a considerable number of laps, it is safe to state that – although everybody’s individual goals may be different – everybody wants to keep themselves, their finances and their car safe.
types of instruction
Remembering all driving regulations and understanding the unspoken rules of the public session on the Nürburgring can be confusing and complicated. With a detailed pre-briefing from an apex nürburg instructor, you’ll be able to hit the track feeling just like a regular.
Introductory track day experience
We want our customers to be able to try the flavor of track days, without having to commit the time and money a normal track day requires. For this reason, we have brought the “Introductory track day experiences” to life, where all of our instructors have freed up their day to show you this face of the track. You can book in starting from 2 all-inclusive laps and enjoy this one-to-one in car training exclusively with Apex.
Performance driving experience
Instructions are not only a service for beginners. Our performance driving days are set up to get the most out of each driver and to focus on driving technique, car control and preparation. After every couple of laps, the instructor will sit down and evaluate the laps with you, using the RaceNavigator footage and data, so, when you go back out on track, you have all the information you need to improve fast.
On certain track days, we can organize a lead-and-follow instruction set-up, where our instructor would not sit in the car with you, but rather drive behind you or in front of you and observe your driving from the outside. The information you can acquire from trailing a driver is significantly different than from in-car instructions.
