RSRNurburg have joined forces with Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps whereby RSRSpa will be the track’s authorized driver’s school from 2012. This partnership opens up new opportunities to drive this world renowned track to practically anyone from around the globe, almost every day of the week, throughout the season.
RSRNurburg, Ron Simons Racing Nurburg, have built a reputation of excellence over the past 15 years at the famous Nűrburgring for driver training, instruction, track car rentals, corporate events and tour rallies. Now, they are expanding their business over the border into Belgium at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps which is only just over an hour away.
Pierre Alain Thibaut (General Managing Director at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps) said: “Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps is in general working on bundling products and services so to be able to open up the racetrack to the general public for more days a year and for every budget. This partnership where the circuit brings in the facilities and RSRSpa brings in the cars to drive it, is the most important in a series of improvements and extensions on and around Spa Francorchamps.” Additionally, “The goal is to extend the number of available driving sessions for the recreational and non-racing customer. This will result in the track being available for this for a few days a week throughout the season.” And in closing, “We are pleased to have RSR Nűrburg on board with us. RSR are a professional company that has built a successful business on a reputation of excellence that is known and respected worldwide. Bringing their cars, expertise, various driving & instruction packages and programs to Spa will open up new opportunities for customers from around the world and we look forward to a long and successful partnership with them”.
“We are very excited to be able to offer our customers the opportunity to drive at two of the very best tracks in the World” said Ron Simons, director and owner of RSRNűrburg and now RSRSpa. “It is a very logical step since we have been increasing our presence at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps with our tour rallies, track instruction, car rentals and corporate events gradually over the past few years. Drawing on the knowledge & expertise that we have built up at the Ring we will be able to tailor-make new programs for Spa. The excellent facilities at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps are within easy reach, just over an hours’ drive away along some fantastic roads through the beautiful Eifel and Ardennes countryside.” Ron goes on to explain; “Not only will this expansion of our business give our existing customer base an extended range of options to choose from but what this partnership really means is that virtually anyone will be able to book a an ‘arrive & drive’ package to sample the fantastic track that is Spa Francorchamps.”
