ok, when you're going back in June (and I am sure you are), I'd be interested in joining if it's late to mid June.... Given the crazy Swiss insurance won't cover track days I assume you can get insurance there for the day, right?

Why wont your imsurance cover it ? Its not a race course.. in the manner like HHR is. According to my insurance NoS is a toll- road which is covered by ins because when something happens & the police have to come theres a accident report that has to be filled out.
Did I understand something wrong ?

Yes, unfortunately this is wrong. All Swiss insurances will not cover accidents on the NOS, only German insurances will.

So I would also be interested if someone knows something about track day insurance...

Holy crap, I definately have to go to my insurance company and get this figured out by thursday, I was told by my agent that the North Loop was the only course covered by them because it has a toll pay system and is considered a part of the public german roadways. Im confused
Ill go ask tommorow and see what & if anything has changed..
Keep you up to date on this
