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 rented with Jaco's Paddock for a Nordschleife touristenfahrten day, expecting one of their 325i cars. To my surprise, they upgraded me to a 330i for no additional cost. The whole team was incredibly friendly and helpful, and you can tell that for them, racing is not just a business but their passion.

I was given a full walkthrough of the car and the rules and courtesy for driving a touristenfahrten day. With four laps of the track and all fuel included, the evening session price was an absolute bargain! Their team has an incredible knowledge of the Nordschleife and it absolutely shows in their car setup and track tips!

I would absolutely recommend Jaco's Paddock to anyone looking to drive the tracks they service, and cannot wait to rent with them again, hopefully for a full track day next time!

I was on my own and a bit nervous that everything would work out. I drove 600km to get to the track, the last thing I needed was trouble with the rental. But Jaco arrived with his orange track tool and ensured I would get on the track. I had decided on the Porsche Cayman S.

Short intro before getting strapped in with a last tyre pressure check and off I was. The car seemed well prepared for the track with adequate racing seat, 5 Point harness and roll-cage. Testing the track and car didn‘t take too long, even though it was cold and damp. The Michelin Pilot Sport tyres were up to operating temperature quite fast despite the conditions. The brakes had a good feel and never really faded, despite the track layout causing me to punish them quite a bit, e.g. from over 200km/h down to second gear for a hairpin. The car seemed up to the task enabling me to concentrate on the track and my limits.

After each session Jaco checked tyre pressure and even downloaded the data from the VBox to give me some pointers. Jaco was by my side all day, I think we got along well, making the experience even better.

He pointed out crucial parts of the contract to avoid future disagreements beforehand, such as costs incurred when you over-rev the engine or drive more laps than intended.

In the end he even gave me more laps than signed for... I was surprised at how much fuel I used though, so make sure you have cash or card ready to fill up the car if you have booked it for the day.

I chose Jaco from all the rental places, because the offer seemed good value for money and the booking on the Internet site was easy. All communication with Jaco, including changing the booking on short notice was easy and uncomplicated.

I left the track with a grin and some adrenalin and can only recommend the experience. I had a great day.

Thanks to Jaco.

We Hired the 325i for a perfect track evening, ended up with a nice couple of surprises courtesy of Jaco's. Thank you to all at Jaco's Paddock for the rental of their incredibly capable 330i track car and to Nicholas for meeting with us and taking the time to show us around the other awesome track toys Jaco's have in the Paddock! All inclusive package made the whole experience simple and stress free we simply turned up signed the paperwork and of we went to enjoy the car and the "Green Hell". The E90 330i we drove had a great balance between power and grip with the limits transparent the whole driving experience was very confidence inspiring. We will happily recommend Jaco's Paddock to anyone from the first time "Ring" visitor to the experienced there is something for everyone. Hope to see you again soon and take the 2 Series monster for a round.

Had a full day at SPA in one of Jaco's BMW M2's. Took his advice to pick SPA rather than Nuremburgring as a novice. The day was a great experience. The coach, David Pittard was excellent and patient. Adreneline rush from start to finish. My only piece of advice that I didnt receive was to familiarise yourself with the course beforehand using Youtube or Playstation. This would have made my experience a lot better if I wasn't wasting time remembering corners. All in all a great day

Very service minded and professional Company. I ordered new brakes for my car some days before leaving from Norway to Nurburgring. We arrived late friday, but Jaco did a perfect job fast with my car. We also rented a 125i for the ring for my friend, worked great! Recommend this place for BMW service and rental near the Nurburgring!

Very professional service. I rented a trackday car for the Nordschleife. Car was well balanced and I am pleased with the performance. Office is located in Barweiler just a short drive from the Nurburgring.

Jaco who owns the business speaks flawless English (and I guess Dutch and German as well).

Normally I don't write reviews like this. But I was so happy with my experience at Jaco's Paddock that I thought I should.

I came from the US just to drive on the Nurburgring so I spent a lot of time researching companies that rent cars. The reason I ended up driving Jaco's E46 325i was the price and costumer service. I emailed many places, sadly a lot did not mail me back. Jaco, on the other hand, went out of his way to answer my questions. Even questions about coming to the Nurburgring which was something he did not have to do. He was patient when my work kept playing around with the time I could take off and I had to adjust my dates. I was very impressed that he did such a good job helping me since he is running a two man operation.

The car I drove was great and for the price you can't beat the fact that you are driving a proper VLN Class 4 car on The Ring. It was set up well, built well, drove well, and was very safe. I felt very confident in the car even though the day I drove was pouring rain.

I honestly have nothing to say that is negative about the experience. Jaco is a down to earth kind of guy and is honest. He (I feel awful for forgetting his name) and the other man that works for him have a lot of passion for what they do and it shows through the cars.

Go here, you will not be disappointed. I know for a fact I will be coming back.

I've been using Jaco's Paddock for years now, as a professional racing driver I know what to look for in a good team and Jaco's Paddock ticks all the boxes for me. Mainly the cars are always well prepped and reliable, the service is fantastic and very relaxed unlike a lot of other companies at the Ring.

I've taken friends and my own customers along to the Nurburgring and use JP each time. The customers are always very happy with the cars and the way they are looked after. All of their BMW's are set up exactly for the Nurburgring and make driving the place that little bit easier.

Would highly recommend these guys for novice and experienced drivers, they also have some of the best instructors the ring has to offer, so if you're new then you can use their skills to help you learn. 10/10!

Just returned from a great couple of days down at the Nurburgring.
I was lucky to get in contact with Jaco Venders at Jaco's Paddock Motorsport, and that proved to be a jackpot! Our choice of Ringtool this time came to be one of there great BMW 325 e90.

This car is the real deal and is regulary used in VLN racing, knowing that...truly ads that little extra to the experience!
Our BMW hade a great setup with an amazing KW Suspension chassi, great breaks and revy engine.
One of the engineers from Jaco's also delivered and collected the car in good time before the track opened each day, a great service!....(thanks Ron!)

We also recived quick and informative answers on our questions...

We'll be back soon!
