Legendary, world-famous, 22 kilometres long and either loved or feared – mostly both: The Nürburgring Nordschleife is still seen as the toughest racetrack in the world and has a magnetic attraction for motorsports fans and high-performance enthusiasts. So it’s understandable that many amateur racers and novices would love to experience the “Green Hell” behind the wheel. Besides a suitable vehicle and sufficient racing experience, anyone wanting to race here needs one thing: a DMSB Permit Nordschleife – also known as DPN for short. The Deutscher Motor Sport Bund (DMSB) licence is a requirement for most of the races on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. These include the Nürburgring Endurance Series, the ADAC qualifying race for the 24h race, the ADAC 24 Hours and other events. Here we explain how to obtain the racing licence.
