A Touristenfahrten session is on the Nürburgring Nordschleife or Grand Prix Track, designated by Nürburgring GmbH for a lap or time quota. The usage regulations of Capricorn Nürburgring GmbH apply (and can be viewed at http://www.nuerburgring.de/fans-info/info/agb.html). Trackdays are organised events on a Race circuit or a closed track, on which the participants are allowed to use their vehicles without speed limitation, while respecting the rules applicable to the course. Taxi laps are passenger rides in vehicles piloted by trained drivers. A road tour organised by RSR is a guided drive on public roads, whereby the StVO has to be observed by all participants.

2. All events expressly do not serve the purpose of achieving maximum speeds or attempts to set lap times.

On certain events where it is required, proof must be available of at least one statutory third party liability insurance and the car must comply with the road traffic regulations of the country of the event. On other events each driver will be responsible for any damage incurred to their own vehicle, regardless of the circumstances, with no discussion about fault in case of a collision between two or more cars. It is the responsibility of the participant to check the rules and regulations of the event. When participating in the event with a car not owned by the participant, a declaration of consent from the owner, regarding the use of the car at the event, must be able to be provided. Admission of the vehicle to the event is at the discretion of the organiser, its legal representatives and agents on an individual, case by case basis.

Participants shall not risk themselves or others or the vehicles used, either intentionally or by gross negligence.

Warning signs and flags must be observed and respected at all times, and the participants must behave accordingly.
