Jaco’s Paddock Motorsport is a racing team with long-term experience in the RCN, VLN and in the 24 hour race at the Nurburgring. Our orange BMWs are famous here and over the years have attracted not only amateur racing drivers, but also professional racing car drivers like Diego Romanini, and David Pittard. Even Takashi Ohi, known for his work at Gran Turismo, Ferrari Challenge Champion Bjorn Grossman and ex-F1 test driver Fabio Leimer have already enjoyed the fantastic atmosphere of our hospitality between their stints.
Years ago, because a race on the Nurburgring Nordschleife is on the to – do list of every seasoned racer as well as inexperienced hobby driver, we decided to be available for every kind of driving enthusiast. And when we look back on our success in recent years, it worked very well. In 2019 our team focussed mainly on the RCN, VLN and the 24 hour race at the Nurburgring. The latter is a very special racing experience thanks to a starting field of 200 racing cars and the 300,000 racing enthusiasts around the track. Our goal is to be strong competition for the other participants and to distinguish ourselves on the route.

WHICH RACE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
RCN Rundstrecken Challenge
The RCN Series (Rundstrecken Challenge Nurburgring) is a very famous racing-event in the so called “Green Hell” in a traditional, relaxed and fun – but very competitive – way.
Every season there are 8 races with more than 200 participants, who want to prove their racing-skills at the Nurburgring Nordschleife. In the younger days, the RCN was dominated by amateurs, but in the last couple of years it focused more and more on fast, fun and professional racing.
Cars are split into classes where the fastest start first followed by the slower cars making it a fun but safe event. One event lasts two and a half hours and can see you complete 15 laps of the Nordschleife! You will need to complete 3 of these events to obtain your Nurburgring Permit B. A further two RCN races will give you a German International C Race Licence, if you do not hold an equivalent licence from another authorised body.
VLN Nurburgring Endurance Series
The VLN endurance championship Nurburgring will kick off in 2020 with a new brand identity – “Nurburgring Endurance Series”.
This is where the top teams, who also take part in the 24-hour races, regularly compete against each other in order to find out who is the best.
So you are able to drive on the same famous track and side by side with the big teams of Audi, BMW, Aston Martin, Vauxhall, Lexus, Porsche and many more – and that’s just a small selection of the brands that are part of the VLN lineup.
Unlike the RCN, which takes place exclusively on the Nordschleife, the VLN is a combination of a part of the GP route and the entire Nordschleife. It’s a demanding race series and a real challenge.
This race requires a valid FIA International C licence and at least the Nordschleife Permit Grade B (dpn).
The ADAC 24 Hour Race even takes it one step further. A lot of top racing teams like GT3, GT4, PRO XP participate in this outstanding race.
You are able to drive side by side with the big Teams of Audi, BMW, Aston Martin, Vauxhall, Lexus, Porsche and many more – and that’s just a small selection of the brands that take part in the 24h lineup.
In contrast, in addition to the Nordschleife not only part of the GP track but the whole GP track is used. Due to the large starting field and the professional and strong drivers, the 24h race is a great challenge, which not only tests your skills but also your endurance on the track.
Due to the great presence of this event it will be televised on broadcasters like ZDF, MDR, RTL, Sport1 and N – TV.
This special race requires a valid FIA International C licence and a Nordschleife Permit Grade A (dpn).
