To be able to drive any section of German’s famous Nürburgring road course is a dream for countless gearheads, but unlike many enthusiasts, members of the Baden-Württemberg International Corvette Club are taking that dream and turning it into reality as they hit the track later this month. With such an amazing opportunity at hand, we got in touch with Brian Davis, one of the club’s members, to get the details on the upcoming track weekend. And don’t worry; if you can’t attend the event yourself, we’ll be keeping in touch with Davis for a recap of the festivities afterwards.
The Baden-Württemberg International Corvette Club consists of mostly U.S military and Department of Defense personnel stationed over in Europe, but also includes members from Germany, Russia, the Czech Republic, Italy, Sweden and Australia.
Of course, club events are all centered around the Corvettes these men and women proudly own, from cruises around Europe to car shows and track visits.
The club has even raced on some of the most famous race tracks in Europe and been a part of the opening ceremonies for the 24 Hours of Le Mans in which they got to take a hot lap on the track at the beginning of the famous race. And get this – the only requirement to be a part of it all is to own a Corvette and be living in/traveling through Germany.
The Baden-Württemberg International Corvette Club doesn't collect dues or even have officers, it's just about coming together and enjoying America's favorite sports car.
For the club’s next event they will spend August 25th and 26th at Germany’s famous Nürburgring. Saturday will be filled with events from a daytime photo shoot, time at Ring Boulevard and the Werks Museum, two hours of laps on the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife course, nighttime photo shoot and some cold ones to top off the day at the Dorint Hotel of Nürburg which overlooks the F1 track. On Sunday, the club will enjoy more time on the Nordschleife track, racing as long as bodies and the track will allow.
This sounds like a killer Corvette event and if we were in Germany, we’d be chomping at the bit to get in on it. Of course we aren’t, so we’re going to have to live vicariously through Davis. So keep an eye out toward the end of August, because we’ll be bringing you a full recap of all the details from the event after its completion.
