"Primul contact cu cei de la TheAutoExperience l-am avut în seara zilei de 26 mai, când am aflat din scurt că pe timpul weekendului pot în sfârșit să ajung la mult râvnitul Nürburgring.
Căutând o soluție pentru a închiria rapid o mașină, de pe o zi pe alta (rezervările făcându-se în mod normal cu până la patru zile în avans), am contactat biroul din București al TheAutoExperience. Aflându-mă în ultima sută de metri, pun mâna pe telefon și surprinzător pentru ora târzie, îmi răspunde cineva de la TheAutoExperience, dornic să mă ajute în a avea parte de distracția vieții mele. Îmi spune că cererea mea este foarte din scurt, dar că va face tot posibilul ca visul meu să se împlinească. Închid telefonul, iar după jumătate de oră primesc un e-mail de confirmare, cum că a doua zi personalul de pe Nürburgring mă va aștepta pe circuit cu mașina pregătită de distracție.
Odată ajuns acolo, am întâlnit o echipă primitoare și dornică de a mă face să mă simt cât mai bine, care mi-a făcut trainingul specific pachetului achiziționat, după care am pornit pe circuit. Deși am mai avut experiențe de condus pe alte circuite, pot să spun fără rezerve că pilotajul pe Nürburgring cu TheAutoExperience a fost cea mai tare experiență din viața mea!
Mulțumesc echipei TheAutoExperience pentru promptitudine și organizarea excelentă a acestei aventuri! Nu va fi ultima oară când vom colabora!"

If you want to drive within your limits at very high speeds then Ron’s coaching is essential. I have completed maybe 2000 laps and entered the 24hour race 7 times in a row, but Ron’s input added a new dimension.Ron Simons of the 75 experience offers the perfect opportunity to acclimatise to the new track conditions. His in depth knowledge is invaluable and can make the difference between a huge off or valuable seconds gained. The track is a new animal once it has a good soaking from the inevitable Eifel Rain. The off apex lines are very difficult to find without Ron’s expert guidance. Whilst the 75’s are not in the prime of life their set up is spot on, helping enormously to boost the driver’s confidence and enjoyment. No lap round here is ever wasted and if you have time take in the views some of the best from any circuit worldwide.

If you are about to race on the Nordschleife you will need Ron. As well as you may think you know the track, he can offer everything from a quick knowledge top-up,to an in depth course of tuition. He imparts his wisdom accurately and succinctly. He does not seek to frighten but to educate. He lays the groundwork for you to be able to build from. Simply the best instruction for the worlds best circuit
Ron, just wanted to thank you and the team for a great 3 days in both Spa and Nurburgring. I really loved every second of it and ensure you that I will be back. The hospitaility, techincal knowledge, personal touch and real care for me demonstrated during these days was unforgettable. If you or anyone from the team ever happens to come to Brazil, please let me know and I will be pleased to extend to you the same hospitality you offered me.

We've partnered with the RSR team for several years on client entertainment programs combining the 'Ring, Spa and the Lotus Tour Rallye. While they each offer a different driving experience the one thing they share is quality and organisation. If you want the ultimate track driving experience, RSR Nurburg offer the ultimate learning experience.
Craig, I wanted to drop you a line thanking you for the great time my friend and I had driving the ring. We were there October 2nd & 3rd and drove a Clio and the M3. It was an unforgettable experience and am definitely planning to come again in the future. Everyone at RSR was friendly/helpful and the facility was comfortable while waiting. The vehicles were well maintained and a complete joy to drive. Our trip to Nurburg was everything we hoped it would be and yourself and everyone at RSR were a huge part of that. Thanks again!

I am just back in the office today and I wanted to thank you so much for the amazing afternoon Jacqueline and I had at the Nürburgring on Sunday. Too sadly, the track was closed due to the major 8-car accident and still, I keep a great memory of that day thanks to the very warm welcome of Craig and his guided tour. I just found it perfect: the scenery, the chosen stops, the stories… all of that made the place feel very special! I both owe you a big one so if there is anything I can do for you in the future, please let me know. In the meantime, the least I can do is highly recommend RSR to any Nürburgring or car enthusiast as I truly believe this offers a memorable experience. Many, many thanks!
On August 15 you were my instructor. Last weekend we won our class at the FHR-Longdistance-cup/Youngtimer race at the Nordschleife Westfalentrophy with our TR 4. I passed the then class-leading 911 on the outside at Schwedenkreuz (you may remember, I did exactly the same on August 15 in your Alfa 75 passing a Honda or Toyota). In the end, my co-driver Uwe and myself managed to stay ahead of the 911 (admittedly helped by a longer pitstop of the Porsche). And with that result, we won the team-championship of the FHR-Longdistance-Cup 2011 for cars up to 1965. So thank you for tuition!
Thank you thank you thank you! I have never had so much fun on the track. The introductory briefing was very helpful, the in-car instruction very capable. The cars were faultlessly prepared and both the M3 and the Clio were delightful to drive. Please pass my thanks on to both John and Jonathan, who were both very helpful. It is always a little nerve-racking to book something like this sight-unseen over the internet, but you folks made it easy. A thoroughly professional operation. If you've ever wanted to drive the Nürburgring Nordschleife, RSR Nürburg is the way to go.
We all had a very good experience for this trip to the ring: Organisation was excellent, from initial contact, ordering, delivery of services through to completion. RSR premises were professional and very conveniently located for both Nurgurg town and the Nordschliefe Being able to use the premises as a base for the trackday and avoiding the ring car-park as a result was a plus point. Everyone from Ron, Instructors and staff were all very professional/knowledgeable and capable and this made a big difference such that the overall attention to delivering the customer experience was excellent. The R26R car was well presented/looked after and surprisingly quick, provision of a tyre package for semi slicks made quite a difference on track. Prices were not cheap but on balance worked out as good value, given the overall experience and the equipment / attention given by RSR overall. I would recommend RSR unreservedly to a UK (RHD) visitor, and will likely use you again in the future in some capacity.
Big thanks to Ron, Craig, John and all RSR staffs, for all the great work and help, myself and Chris just had one of our best weekends with you guys at the Nurburgring and Spa, your service and knowledge are top notch, we hope could come to you again soon!!
I cant think of one word so I've thought of a list here goes; Awesome, great instruction, a great company, a great team, great cars, great prices, amazing, unbelievable, friendly staff, welcoming, willing to help, conveniently positioned near the track. If i had to explain my weekend in one word it would be; supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, and dare i say it was all down to RSR!!!!! Thank you very much to you and all your team for being so welcoming and fault free every time we use your service!!!!
I did a track day with RSR on June 29th at Spa. Can't say enough about the level of service from all the staff! The drive to and from Spa was almost as fun as the trackday!! I would definitely do this again. Thanks again to Ron and all the staff at RSR
I would like to say once again how great my time was at the Nurburgring. It was mainly down to how professionally, efficiently and brilliantly RSR is run and the awesome staff you have there. Not only was the time on the track a blast (as well as having a couple of brown alerts) but the tour in the Lotus on the Friday topped it off and has given me many happy memories and experiences. I had an absolute ball and have told my friends about it and some of them have vowed to check RSR out when they go to Germany. Once again, Thank you and I hope to be back in the not so distant future! Have a great day, and happy motoring.

Thank you all so much – we all had a really amazing time and you guys really went out of your way to make it perfect! Looking forward to next year…..!

As a Flight Attendant for 20 years now, I've had the opportunity to visit a lot of places and do a lot of things that otherwise have not been able to do. The sights and museums of Paris, golf in England, shopping in Seoul and Shanghai, visiting the Ferrari Factory, driving the Mediterranean coast in Italy, surfing in Hawaii; these are just a few of the things I've been able to do. Of all the great days I've had, September 24th 2009 will probably go down as the greatest of them all. On that day i drove the Nürburgring Nordschleife in an Alfa Romeo!
James KingHistoric Grand Prix Inc / Director
After racing in many professional series for twenty years and now for the past twelve in historic Formula 1 + 2, I can say that the two days spent with Ron Simons at the Nürburgring are at the very top of my list of rewarding and exciting experiences. It ranks right up there with the Monaco Historique and Goodwood Revival events. With Ron's unique and confidence building coaching, not only is it gratifying to begin to come to grips with this awesome circuit, but it is very good value. I am planning to bring a group of my fellow racers back in the near future.
John Delane1 TeamTyrrell / USA
Ron, the whole thing was fantastic! It was amazing! I could never have imagined being able to drive the lap speed we managed over the course of the day on the Nordschleife, amazing! Your system to learn is fabulous and I really think it the perfect method to learn this incredibly challenging track using the lead follow method and the intercom makes it so easy. The cars are great tools and much more fun than I could have imagined. And, your confident style of teaching is priceless in building my driving skills in the process. Plus getting to ride with you and witness your amazing car control is simply beyond belief. Overall and very productive experience and one that I will remember for a long time. Thanks again!
Member P1 supercarclub Trip to the Ring
Driving the ‘Ring under Ron’s expert guidance was undoubtedly the best fun I've had in a car. Imagine stunning scenery, the most challenging and rewarding 14 mile stretch of road in world and no oncoming traffic, it really is an awe-inspiring place. My pre-conceptions of my own abilities were quickly dismissed and I was soon re-learning the Ron Simons way, an excellent way to learn and an unforgettable experience. He will represent P1 very well. My return trip is already booked.
Adrian ThompsonMember P1 supercarclub
Hi Ron & Crew, on behalf of Graeme and me just wanted to say a huge thanks for making our weekend at the ‘Ring’ so fabulously enjoyable. Your commitment to ensuring we had a good time both off and on the track was very much appreciated. Your hospitality and special arrangements for us to enjoy the various activities on Friday was a great treat and was a fabulous introduction to what I can only describe as the Europe’s motor sport Mecca. It would be fair to say that everything I have ever read or heard about the ‘Ring’ didn’t in any way prepare me for the challenge and respect that it demands & deserves. After our first circuit on Friday night I had severe reservations that I had taken on more than I felt capable of. Happily, thanks to your patience, skill and infectious confidence we were soon lapping both safely and (for us!) quickly; the addition of heavy rain in the evening added a further dimension to what was an immensely satisfying & memorable day. The high speed passenger rides on Sunday morning bought yet more excitement and exhilaration, although left me with something of a dilemma – how do I get to drive as well as you do? Fortunately RSR appear to have both the facilities and instructor capabilities to make this (almost) possible, you warned me that it would become addictive, and you are absolutely right – I’ll be back soon. Thanks again & best regards.
Ross SharpClassic & Sports Car / Senior Dealer Account Executive
Dear Ron, Adam and Dale, Thank you very much for a fantastic weekend. The cars were immense fun to drive and the instruction given was not only professional, but perfect for the ‘ring and the daunting learning curve. I would have no problem recommending RSR to any of my clients or friends, in fact I have already done so. Everyone was very impressed with the set up of your operation and I dare say they will be chatting about nothing else but this trip for weeks to come! I look forward to seeing you again and bringing along another group of petrol heads for the full ‘treatment’. Thank you again.
Well, it's been three weeks since my visit to Nürburg and I still have the afternoon of the 8th October burnt into my memory! I had a fantastic afternoon and learnt so much that could not be taught from books, video or simulator. Nothing can prepare you for 'the Ring' !rst-hand. Thank you for your patience and your instruction which was priceless.
Nick LyrasAthens, Greece
Hi this is Nick and I would like to express my feelings for you and your crew. THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH for that fantastic experience you provide to all of us last week. THANK YOU for your perfect hospitality. THANK YOU for sharing with us all your knowledge. I knew that I could not consider myself as a top driver at fast driving, but I thought I could stand just ok on a racetrack. You destroyed everything showing us that we know nothing but I also THANK you for that.
Angus ChapelBMW Club of Australia / Motorsport Director
Whether this sort of thing is within your budget restraints or not, I thoroughly urge you to look at the option of visiting the 'ring' at least once in your life, as it will change your perspective of racing forever. It has every combination of cornering you can imagine and some extreme straights to join them from double apex, early and late late entries, cambered exits, crested entries and apexes, blind chicanes (famous for gobbling people up) and among all of that, traffic! It also has wet spots (despite a perfectly dry day) and I can't think of a sanitary pun for that one at this stage?!?! It has to be the single most thrilling experience of my life to date, besides climbing into the Porsche GT3 with Ron at the end of the day … imagine a stripped out GT3 being absolutely wrung out at speeds that made the Clio seem like a kids ride. I kept pulling my harness straps tighter and tighter and still I was being thrown around in the racing seat. That man can really drive and knows this place like it's his own, and after asking me 'So how was that?' at the end of the lap I had only one thing to say … 'AGAIN!'
Jon IngeWA USA
Just wanted to thank you for a great experience on August 29 with the Alfa! You, Dale and the rest of the team really did make it a memorable day, and Dale's pre-driving guidance on track protocol and safety was especially clear and helpful. I wanted to thank you, too, for taking the time to suggest places my wife and I to visit while in the area. Both Monreal and Burg Eltz were fascinating places we certainly wouldn't have discovered without your input, and we really appreciate your advice. Thanks again, Ron. I'm glad to have met you and Dale, and look forward to a return visit. And if you get back to Seattle any time, please give me a call!
The 75 experience is an excellent way to learn possibly the most difficult track in the world, Ron’s knowledge and teaching abilities combined with some sharp handling cars taught me more in one day than in my 3 previous trips to the ‘ring. Winning the Top Hat race (and 6th overall) in the Marathon a few weeks later must be testament enough!
In returning home to the US, I am still in awe, having taken part in the 75 Experience at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. It was with the expertise, insights and professionalism offered by Ron Simons and his crew that I was confident lapping what is quite simply the most amazing and challenging circuit in the world. The classroom instruction, on- track guidance and hospitality offered where all first rate. Whether you are an Alfisti or not, there is no denying just how effective and entertaining a well set up 75 can be. Riding with Ron displayed this to a level, which must be experienced to believe!! If you are considering making a trip to the ‘Ring, the 75 Experience offers a way to both learn and thrill in equal measures. You owe it to yourself to take part. I know I can’t wait to return!!
Nick TaylorFerrari Club UK
The 75Experience appears to me to be terrific value for money. If you want one-on-one instruction it is more expensive but is well worth it. We can wholeheartedly recommend it an experience of a lifetime!

After being my own teacher for more than 400 laps during the last 10 years, I finally found the correct line around the "Grüne Hölle" thanks to Ron Simons and his 75 Experience.
