If you associate the Touristenfahrten (public driving sessions) on the Nordschleife with a track closure, you are (unfortunately) not wrong at all. I had to make the same experience a couple of times the last time I went there.
Sometimes, there is an accident that requires a closure. As soon as the track is reopened, many drivers who had to wait for the track to reopen go for a lap, all at once. Thus, the possibility of further accidents increases... Consequently, on some days the Nordschleife closes for more or less half the time of its opening hours.
Drive safe, read the safety instructions on the website before you first get on the Nordschleife, stay on the right side until you know the track and do not attempt to beat a lap time. If you follow these simple rules, you will have great fun visiting the Nürburgring :) #Nürburgring #nordschleife #publicdriving #touristenfahrten #terroristenfahrten #doettingerhoehe #badluckforthedriver #closure #trackclosure #drivesafe
