Bilster Berg | Saturday 27th July 2019
After our 2 fantastic visits to the wonderful Bilster Berg back in 2016/17 we’re returning with a rare Saturday that will hopefully allow members to either do the day as a one off or double up with our main Spa date on the following Monday.
Note: This event is being run on Saturday afternoon/evening: 3pm-8pm – so 5 hours of open pit lane track time against an everage of 7hrs on most days. We won’t stop for lunch ensuring drivers make the most of the day.
Modelled on the likes of the Ascari Resort in Spain, the entire circuit has been designed from scratch by Hermann Tilke, the industry’s most experienced circuit architect. He is best known for renowned F1 circuits such as Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Malaysia, Istanbul, Shanghai and has now turned his hand to creating a New Nürburgring, “The natural ‘Nordschleife flair’ with high safety standards will continue to enthuse every driver. With various ideal lines, the corners allow for approximately identical lap times, while nature itself dictates the unmistakable signature of the test track.”
It is not only the very special scenic-park-like ambiance which makes Bilster Berg so unique. The 4.2 kilometres long track has 19 bends, 44 crests and dips, more than 200 meters change in altitude and declines up to 26%. It truly is one of the great circuits in Europe.

* road legal Lotus & Caterhams with cat should have no issue with noise. The circuit operate a transponder system to identify cars – we have discussed noise at the end of both previous days and there were no concerns over our return. However, we will keep the number of cars low & control their type. Noise operates on a bucket system – so less cars means less noise – similar to Zandvoort.
