Track fees are going up at the Nürburgring circuit in Germany for the 2011 season.

Still, it may come as a surprise to most that the Nurburgring is open to the public for a fee of $32 (€24) for single lap around the full length of the track - known as the Nordschleife or Green Hell with 170 curves and measuring 25.378 km/15.77 miles in distance.

That's up from a single lap price of $29 (€22) this year.

Yes, the track at the Nürburgring can be used by anyone when it is not reserved by automakers for testing or for other racing events. There's also a Ring Taxi for those who want a rush but don't trust their own skills.

For a fee of $119 (€89) you get four laps and it includes a meal ticket for the on-site restaurant and a free entry to the Ring Werk Museum.

A 15-lap package can be had for $415 (€310), 25 laps will cost you $629 (€470).

A season pass is available for $1,800 (€1,346).
