I was lucky enough to visit one Tuesday in 1998, saw the museum and "Mercedes new models" on the track. Stood in the first row of the grandstands at the beginning of the start/finish straight. There was a LeMans spec racer blowing flames and backfiring as he shutoff for turn 1, great memories...

I was always welcome at my aunts place in Heidelberg, just 20 Km from the Hockenheim track, but had to drive 400+ Km from my Northern hometown.
In those times it was via Dortmund & Frankfurt in my E9 Schnitzer CSL (there was no Autobahn between Bielefeld & Kassel then).
I remember the Autobahn around Frankfurt quite curvy. Good times
