German Grand Prix

German Grand Prix 2018

The German Grand Prix is back on the Formula 1 calendar after a 1 year hiatus.

The German Grand Prix at the Hockenheimring is all about raw horsepower. It`s a flat out blast around a 4.2 mile tree-lined track then into the stadium section where we have a choice of tickets and hosptality.

After shortening the track to 2.8 miles the fans see the cars much more often. This enables the German fans to fire more rockets and sound their fog horns a greater number of times, as their favorite driver comes by.

The color and sound is breathtaking at the German Grand Prix with a sea of red Ferrari fans that far out does that of any other track.

Tickets, Hospitality Packages, Transfers & Accommodations

Within easy reach of Hockenheimring is Heidelberg, certainly one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. We have two hotel options each of which exudes elegance and old world charm.

Grand Prix Tours only offers the best ticket and hospitality options available. While we highly suggest the opulence of the F1 Paddock Club we also offer the best viewing options the Hockenheimring has to offer.

Track transfers have been arranged for both Saturday and Sunday with an optional transfer scheduled for Friday as well.

RACE OVERVIEW

German Grand Prix
The original circuit at Hockenheimring was built in 1932 using roads in the forest for motor cycle racing. By 1936 the track was expanded so the Auto Union and Mercedes Benz could use the track for their all dominant Silver Arrows. It was not until 1970 that the Hockenheimring was used for Formula 1, after the drivers boycotted the old Nurburgring because of the dangers of using the 14 mile circuit. The old Nurburgring was upgraded but the circuit, known to drivers as the "Green Hell", lasted only another six years, until it was decided it was still too dangerous.

In 1968 the two long straights surrounded by trees at Hockenheimring cost the life of Jim Clark and chicanes were placed to reduce speeds. In 1995 the German Grand Prix was joined by a second race in Germany at the new Nurburgring usually called European Grand Prix. By 2007 the race alternated annually. During this time Hockenheimring spectators only saw 45 lap races due to the tracks length and the long straights caused a 50% attrition rate for the race cars. Out came the jack hammers and by 2002 the shorter Hockenheimring became a much more interesting track.

After the Schumacher era Hockenhiem, like the new Nurburgring circuit had difficulty financing races, and at present only the Hockenheimring is used for F1.
