The Allard Grace
God of Allard God of steel,
God who made the steering wheel.
God of Rolls and God of Royce,
Whose Silver Wraith made man rejoice.
God of W, O and Bentley,
Go said God and Go but gently.
Then God trying just as hard
Caught Sydney's eye indeed Allard
And said young man it is no joke,
Go make a car with lots of poke.
That's what he did, that's why we're here
To drink his health with wine and beer.
Oh Lord of Lords, Oh Three in One,
We know you have a sense of fun.
So bless us with, dear Lord we pray,
Good food, good friends, on Allard day.

31.12.2015 - New Years' Party
To all friends of the Ringhaus who don't want to spend just another New Years' Eve like the years before. Join our Ringhaus party, where we will talk some bullshit, hear loud music, and search the spirit of the Old Foresters house, Nordschleife, and maybe also the one of some liquids. After some years we will again organise a party ... mainly for ourselves :-)
It will be a 'Non-Profit' but 'Non-Sponsoring', private party for Friends & Family with open calculation and cost sharing.
Who likes to join just sends a message to our door(wo)man:
October 2015 - Green Hell Driving Days
September 2015 - Apollo is alive!
After several years break Gumpert is again testing at the Ring and installed their workshop like always at the Ringhaus. Our yard became the pitlane again like 2009 when they broke the Nordschleife lap record for street legal sportscars.
September 2015 - Written off Golf repaired and ready to race
After fixing the chassis and body work, building up a new engine, installing everything including gearbox, all coolers, looms, etc. we started for the next RCN race. This time successful!
August 2015 - Allard Owners Club
After 17 years of friendship, cooperation, and joined racing activities with Lloyd Allard it was a very special occasion for us to welcome the members of the Allard owners Club at the Ringhaus. Of course they came from various different countries with their Allard models from the 1940th and 1950th.
August 2015 - Allard Ringhaus Racing wieder dabei!
After nearly six years no racing at Nordschleife we are back in an RCN race. Still with the Golf IV R-TDI which we used in 2009 in the 24hr race. Unfortunately the race did not end with the class win as expected but with severe damage after a collision with a BMW driver shortly after Bergwerk corner. Through no fault of us but anyway heavily damaged.
August 2015 - Eurorally stops at Ringhaus
Probably the best party since years we saw with the 'Eurorally' group. They celebrated the last stop of their rally until 4 o'clock in the morning. We hope to have you back next year folks, it was a lot of fun!
August 2015 - AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix
A very nice collection of Young- and Oldtimers was brought by our guests.

June 20012 - Race for Heroes stops at Ringhaus

January 2012 - Damage caused by water set us back several years
The short but hard Winter in the beginning of the year claimed its tribute. After having temperatures below -20° Celsius for two weeks, the following thawing induced a massive damage by water.
The unplanned reconstruction and a few month of hassle with the insurance company gave us a serious setback. But Team Ringhaus says: "Fall, get up, and try, and try, and try ...!"
