Frequently asked questions

Tickets

  1. How do I know whether tickets of a certain category are still available?

    If a certain ticket is available you will be able to choose the amount and you will see an add to basket button () next to it. Tickets that are sold out can be recognized when the comment "sold out" appears.
    Generally speaking, we must confirm all orders by means of an invoice (which you receive by email).

  2. What days are included in weekend tickets?

    Weekend tickets are always valid for the entire weekend of the race, that is, for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
    For some races, however, only tickets for individual days are offered because the organizers of these races do not sell any weekend tickets.

  3. How do I know whether a particular grandstand is covered or faces a video screen?

    You can find this out by looking at the small symbols beside the names of the grandstands on the large circuit map or next to the ticket name in the price list.

  4. Why is there no timetable available for some races?

    Support races in conjunction with motorsport events are usually planned on very short notice. They are thus subject to change on short notice or may be confirmed relatively late. As soon as a timetable becomes available it will be available as a PDF download.

Shopping basket

  1. What is a shopping basket?

    The shopping basket is used on the website for storing the tickets you reserve before proceeding to the check out. This is similar to what you do in a supermarket. After adding tickets to your shopping basket, you can remove them any time or change the number reserved.

  2. How can I add items to the shopping basket?

  3. How can I change the quantity of items ordered?

    Click the navigation button entitled "your basket". The contents of your shopping basket will be shown. In order to change the quantity of a product or ticket category, click the field for ticket quantity in the row you want to change and overwrite the old number. Finally, click the change button () in order to have the change processed.

  4. How can I remove items from the shopping basket?

    Do the same as above to get to your basket. Than click the delete button () next to the items you want to remove.
