The Nurburgring can be hired for private track days. The benefits of driving the Nordschleife on a closed track day are that there will be fewer cars, the standard of driving (should) be higher than on Touristfahrten days, instruction is available and encouraged, and there is no third party liability for UK drivers (see Insurance for more details on this).

The Nürburgring can be hired at short notice by manufacturers or track day organisers, and the track
can open and close at very short notice - although the managers have said this year they will try to avoid this. However, you have to accept that there is a risk the Ring may be closed when you get there. You can minimize the risk by checking the Ring's official Touristfahrten calendar:
Check direct with the GP Strecke office for the official opening times. See the page for more details. Or the full events calendar here:
For the final word on whether the track is open, you can also call the office on +49 2691 302 630, although don't expect them to speak English.
There are ten four hour races a year in this endurance series held on a combined Nordschleife and (shortened) GP track. Entrants range from compacts and classics to fully developed race cars. Access to most of the Nordschleife is free and Grandstand tickets are only €15 in 2012 (up from €12 in 2011) including access to the paddock. Most races start Saturday 12pm and there is usually an evening Touristfahrten after the race finishes at 4pm. It's well worth going to see if it coincides with your visit and is rarely crowded around the track.
RCN is apparently the oldest touring car race series in Germany. It is described as grassroots motorsport so expect familiar cars but not the full race cars of the VLN. Entrance to the Nordschleife is free for spectators.
