Including petrol and hotels you can easily burn through the equivalent of £500 (€600) on a weekend at the Ring.
There are ATMs at the Ring Werk centre near the Grand Prix track, and there are a couple of banks in Adenau that will change GBP into Euros. Your hotel might offer an exchange service, and it's always worth asking other people if they want to exchange Euros into pounds. Just have an idea of the market exchange rate before you do a deal.
Note that using a British bank card to withdraw money in Germany can incur fees. In April 2014 I was charged a £5 International ATM Fee, and got a poor exchange rate from my bank. On a €300 withdrawal I effectively paid £9 for the privilege of using my card.

There are lots of good places to eat near the Nurburgring. Nurburg and Adenau are the main concentrations.
Wifi is widely available in hotels, bars, and some restaurants. You can buy a pre-paid local 3G mobile SIM or dongle for your computer, but mobile signal in the Eifel hills can be patchy. REWE in Adenau and petrol stations are probably good places to start looking.
Vodafone recently launched 4G coverage at the Nürburgring. I am waiting to hear more details from them about this.
There are two main petrol stations ("Tankstelle") near the Ring. One is near the Nordschleife back straight. The other is an Aral on the way into Adenau from the Nurburgring, just after the Breidscheid bridge. Regular and Super are available at most petrol stations in Germany.
Mountain bike hire
There are dirt bike paths all around the Ring, which can be walked or cycled. A mountain bike is adviseable, which you can hire from Sport Am Ring. From the Breidscheid exit, turn right heading into Adenau and it is on the right-hand side not long after the petrol station, next to Lidl. Your hotel may also be able to hire bikes or arrange for them to be delivered to you.
