Press accreditation is open to any member of broadcast, print and internet media who can prove they work for an organization or publication.

To register, please create a user account and then click on "My Account" in the left menu "Change User Group" and register as press. In case you are coming with multiple persons (e.g. a camera crew), it is not required to register all people in the crew. In this case registering the head of the crew suffices.

Press Accreditation step by step in German: FSG_Press_Accreditation_v20150514.pdf.

As soon as you have received a confirmation e-mail, you are registered and will get your ticket at the ticket office at the entrance near the Hotel Motodrom after presenting a valid press identification card.

Valid press cards are:

  • VDS (Verband Deutscher Sportjournalisten)
  • DJU (Deutsche Journalistinnen- und Journalisten-Union) – verdi.medien
  • DJV (Deutscher Journalisten-Verband)
  • BDZV (Bundesverband Deutscher Zeitungsverleger)
  • VDZ (Verband Deutscher Zeitschriftenverleger)
  • Freelance

International journalists need a valid international press card.

After you got your press pass please come directly to the press office in the FSG-Forum. Here you have to sign the exclusion of liability and you will get further information. Additionally, you will receive press vests, which you have to wear to freely use the press zones close to the dynamic area. Here you can take pictures and filming of the driving cars. Access to the dynamic area itself is only possible with an FSG-Official. If you want to use this possibility, please speak to the Official in the press office.

Please take into account:

  • This year it will be not possible to drive by car on the site. If you have heavy equipment (for example cameras) please let us know while you are picking up your press passes at the ticket office and we will pick you up with a shuttle bus and bring you to the FSG-Forum.
  • In the FSG Forum we will also provide internet access and electrical outlets for laptop computers. If you need a separate room to film interviews, please request in advance in the comments section. Let us know if there are any other special needs such as speakers you would like to interview when you arrive or other items you need.

Information for the team press:

This year you won’t have to register as press. Every team can pick up one press vest in the Event Control for a deposit of 50€. New is that you are only allowed to go into the press zones when your own car is supposed to start driving in the next five minutes or is actually driving.
