    Made my Nürburgring dreams come true
    For my first track driving experience after hundreds of virtual laps of the Nürburgring in Gran Turismo, I went with Jaco's Paddock Motorsports' evening Touristenfahrten package. Jaco and his team set me up with a race-prepped BMW 1-Series and I was able to enjoy my laps on the Ring in full confidence I had the right tools for the job. The weekday evening slot at the Ring was great, with relatively little traffic on track, much more civilised than some highlight reels you might see on YouTube. At every step of the way it was clear that JPM has the necessary equipment, expertise and passion behind their operation. Jaco himself was a pleasure to deal with too. I fully recommend Jaco's Paddock to anyone looking to rent a car to attack the Nürburgring with and I'm sure I'll be back for more soon enough.

    Best track day rental company!
    Rented a BMW from Jaco for 2 days of Spa - was absolutely amazing. A friend and I shared the car (1 novice, 1 more experienced) and we both got so much out of the car. Its so well setup and Jaco takes great care and pride in his cars. We had a little bump in the car which wasn't anyone's fault and Jaco was completely fine about it, not like some rental companies that are almost finding any fault to charge you. Jaco clearly does it for the passion and that's the kind of person you want to rent from. Prices are insanely reasonable vs other companies who charge so much it's just not even worth it. Highly recommend

    Nice riding experience at Spa Francorchamps circuit !
    Very nice riding experience with Jaco's Paddock at SPA on September 22, 2023. We had rented a BMW 325i, the car was waiting for us directly on the paddock area of the circuit. Jaco Welders' briefing was very clear with good tips for a day full of emotions, in complete safety. Really good, I recommend Jaco's Paddock!!! Philippe

    Jaco's Paddock + Spa = An Awesome Day Out
    The BMW provided by Jaco's Paddock was an awesome thing to fly around Spa Francorchamps in. An amazing day, great car and a great track. Well worth it. Jaco was friendly and helpful, with a wealth of knowledge, help me improve my times and overall experience.

    Real professionals 👍
    Had a thrilling time at Spa track day in November, rented from Jaco and the team for the second time this year. The car was fantastic, and the staff was so chill and helpful. It was an adrenaline rush, just a really enjoyable day of intense racing fun. If you're seeking high-energy action at Spa, these guys are the way to go! 🏎️✨

My brother and I flew into Brussels for a trackday at Spa Francochamps. We chose Jaco based firstly on his great Nurburgring reputation but also on his competitive pricing for a Spa experience.

The circuit started wet/icy and dried up as the sun came out. We started on PS4S tyres and Jaco then changed us over onto a set of Cup2 slicks when the conditions became appropriate. We were pleasantly surprised by that level of service! I doubt Hertz would ever change the tyres mid contract 😉

The day was amazing and funnyman Jaco was around whenever we had a question, needed advice or felt like a chat. Last but not least, there were no nasty surprises when the bill arrived 😅

I have participated in two RCNs now with Jaco achieving 4th in a competitive class (VT2). Jaco provides a professional race experience with cars and a team that are very well prepared and capable. I highly recommend Jacos team to drivers of all abilities.

I called Jaco only a few days before coming to the Nurburgring and he was able to suggest the best car for me and find me an experienced instructor. The service was excellent, the car was impeccable and a pleasure to drive and the price was extremely reasonable. I'm so happy I found my way to Jaco's paddock, as the people there helped to make my Nurburgring experience an unforgettable one.

I reached out to Jaco last week to rent a car for the Nurburgring, and I had a great experience. The car was a race-prepper E90 325i, and it was an ideal car to take for my first time driving the Green Hell.
Jaco was easy to work with, punctual, and everything went smoothly. You can see that he really takes pride in the work that he does and wants you to have a great time on the track.
Jaco also has a few instructors that he works with - I did get one of them to come with me for the first two laps, and it was really helpful.

We have rented from Jaco for the second time and again we had a great experience. Everything had been arranged at last notice (my own car broke down) and Jaco was most helpful. He took care to chose the right car with and for me, he brought the car to the race track, he was there on time, and he stayed with us for the day I. e. we had a great box service. The car was prepped well and I just had an amazing drive. This is not be the bling and pampering service you may expect with waving an platinum Amex in the air for everyone to see. This is the real thing, real race car. Having had the experience twice, Jaco is my go-to-guy for track cars on Nurburgring and Spa. This review is not sponsored in any way. Service was good for me and price point is realistic if you know a little about track car maintenance. I do recommend.

Rented Jaco’s e46 m3 race car at Spa for a track day last week. I was looking for a safe, well set up and organized rental that wasn’t a program where I was also paying for hospitality tents, food, and luxury I don’t care about,

Jaco delivered. His car was ready when I got to the track. He offered tips to familiarize me with the track, and was there all day to support me. I will rent with him again. Next time, I’ll reach out to him to help me understand my Options for track days before I book. He seemed to know all the groups, and I think he can help me find the track day or race I’m looking for.

I highly recommend Jaco. And for those deciding on what to rent, I wanted something fast enough for spa, that wasn’t a $4k 911 rental. This car was enough. It wasn’t fast in a straight, but could keep up. With me driving on street tires, it’s a ~3:00 lap car. I will upgrade to grooved slicks next time out.
