If your car develops a problem at the 'Ring, there are a few garages in the area that can help. Many of them are used to seeing high performance cars, and receiving foreign customers. If you have experience of a garage that should be added to the list, please send me an email with the details.
The region around the Nurburgring is effectively closed on Sundays and most garages and shops will not be open.
Premio is a chain of garages. Marv Zinz is a friend of mine who works in the branch in Daun, about 20km south of the Ring. Marv speaks great English and can help you out with tyre and exhaust fitting, alignment, crash repairs (road and race cars), diagnostics, parts and car storage and recovery back to the UK. He's a smart guy and is happy to help out at short notice with very reasonable labour rates. Send him a message through Facebook.
The garage address is Bonner Strasse 17, 54550 Daun. The branch has a Facebook page
Car parts can be expensive in Germany. ATU is the closest you'll find to Halfords in Germany. Two branches are listed below. "Teile" means car parts in German. Next day delivery is often available when ordering parts. Petrol stations carry a wider range of parts and consumables than in the UK (including car batteries), and tools and basic car parts such as oil/filters/batteries are available at the Schug DIY store in Adenau.
Some items I bought on trips in 2014, comparing UK prices to what I paid in Germany
Garages/parts in Adenau
Adenau is the biggest town near the Nurburgring and is probably the place where you are going to find a garage to help you change a tyre or brakes or sort some other problem that you have.
Auto Lieder Teile
This is a small independent garage in Adenau that I have used for brake pad and wheel bearing replacement. They have two car lifts but I didn't see a bike stand. Nico Lieder owns the place and although he doesn't speak English, two younger members of his staff do. Both occasions I used them I didn't have to book a time to come in and the work was done quickly and I was pleasantly surprised at the low cost.
Address: Haupstrasse 207, Adenau 53518 (on the left as you head from Adenau to the Nurburgring)
Like B&Q or Wickes but with a decent section for basic car parts. It's well hidden on the far side of Adenau as you come to it from the Ring. It is in the top left of the map

Race car preparation
Many German race teams are based near the Nurburgring. Most of these also offer track car preparation services as well such as rebuilding engines, suspension upgrades, bodywork repair or replacement, and installing roll cages etc, all the way up to full racecar preparation or restoration. In addition, many teams and garages will often let you store a car and wheels/tyres there for a fee, so you can travel to the 'Ring your car is ready to go when you want it.
