Track time with Destination Nurburgring

Hello

I am delighted to announce that Edinburgh Watch Company have become a new sponsor with track day specialist Destination Nurburgring.

This has been some time in planning and is built on a passion held by myself and our customers for sports cars and fine watches.

Destination Nurburgring was established by it’s owner Darren Langeveld following a trip with fellow petrolhead to the famous Nurburgring in 2004. That trip planted a seed with Darren to provide a specialist private track day package that would allow enthusiasts a unique experience to drive their own or perhaps a track prepared race car around the demanding 20.8km circuit.

So in 2010 Destination Nurburgring was born and now in his 9th year has become the leading company in his field. Darren’s experience extends beyond running this great company to coaching racing drivers and privateers as a qualified ARDS instructor across multiple international circuits.

As a company we carefully choose who we partner with or sponsor based on what see of their customer experience. I had the pleasure of joining their track day in 2015 in a Mini Cooper S which while slightly under powered was great fun. Any events success is based on meticulous planning which in the case of a track day focusses heavily on safety and security and my own experience was first class! There’s nothing better than a great customer testimonial.. please see what DN customer’s think here

You may be thinking why would EWC sponsor a track day company operating in Germany when we are based in Edinburgh. Each year I look ahead and consider how we can build the EWC brand and historically we have a large number of customers, ladies and gentleman, that simply love luxury watches and sports cars so it felt like a great synergy between Darren’s business and EWC that I am really enjoying looking forward to working with. For Darren and his DN customers EWC offers a curated collection of luxury Swiss watches with a personalised service.

I will be joining the event on 20th May where we look forward to meeting many of the DN customers and sharing our mutual passion for watches and sports cars.

So if you have not experienced the Nurburgring and want a private track day experience where you will be in the company of like minded individuals I really recommend you take a look at the Destination Nurburgring website and slot a date into your 2019 calendar… it will be one of your most memorable and enjoyable days of the year!
