Too many people arrive at the Ring with no appreciation of the risks and no idea of the rules - both official and unofficial. The Ring is not a short-circuit with run-off, gravel-traps and tyre-walls, it is a track declared too dangerous for continued use by professional racing drivers.
The leaflet below was a collaborative effort of a number of Ring enthusiasts of a whole range of nationalities. It summarises what we collectively feel to be the most important points to bear in mind when driving or riding at the Ring. Volunteers on the Ringers list then translated the leaflet into a rather astonishing number of languages.
No further comments or suggestions, please - we went through seven versions to get here! There is always one more thing to say, and one more opinion, but we had to stop somewhere. Also, if it got too long it would simply be like the long list of small-type rules that nobody ever reads. But if you can translate into another language, please email me for a PowerPoint template.
The leaflet may be freely reproduced and distributed provided that it is not modified in any way and provided that no fee is charged. You are fully encouraged to upload it to your homepages, share it with friends, distribute within bike and car clubs, reproduce in newsletters, etc, etc. We want it to be available as widely as possible.
There is also now an official safety leaflet in three languages. This is somewhat less hard-hitting than the unofficial one, and also less comprehensive, but has the advantage that it is available in the ticket office. You can download a PDF of this also:
