Hockenheim, Baden-Württemberg, Germany
From forest track to Grand Prix circuit
The history of the Hockenheimring began as early as 1932, initially as an unpaved track through forests, later as a permanent race track under the name Kurpfalzring, until the track was finally reopened after the war under the name Hockenheimring. The track was rebuilt a total of five times to meet the ever-increasing demands. The effort was to pay off; today, the Hockenheimring is one of the most versatile motorsport venues in Europe.
A clean line without steering corrections when accelerating is the key to taking as much momentum as possible onto the long parabolic.
If you take too much momentum out of turn 7, you will often run out of space in the following right-hand turn. Therefore, the principle "slow in - fast out" applies here.
The Sachskurve is the centre of the Motodrom. Depending on the vehicle, different lines are driven here. Our instructors will be happy to help you find the perfect line for you.
