Robert Kubica is currently pursuing obtaining his Nordschleife racing licence, a requirement for the GT3 class in which the Polish driver wishes to race.
The fearsome German venue requires drivers to obtain a Nordschliefe permit in order to race powerful cars such as the GT3 class at the fast and undulating circuit.
Kubica entered the Nurburgring Endurance Series last weekend, racing a Porsche Cayman as the first step towards obtaining that licence as he sets his target on racing GT3s.
"I've tested a GT3 car a couple of times," Kubica told Germany's Auto Motor und Sport.
"I'm not a big fan of it on a normal track. I've been in formula cars for most of my life. It's a different driving style in GT3 and you need different skills - you have to be a specialist.
"Everything is a little different on the Nordschleife, also because of the unique track characteristics. The GT3 is the highest category here. So it is practically the Formula 1 of the Nordschleife."
Asked whether he'd be interested in a fulltime career as a GT3 driver, the Alfa Romeo F1 reserve said: "When you've driven Formula 1, there aren't many other categories that can offer you so much fun and such a good feeling.
"Last year when I was here with the DTM, I occasionally did a few laps of the Nordschleife in a road car. So I thought: OK, that seems interesting. Maybe more interesting than I thought. So I decided to do the license.
"I want to do a few races this year, above all to have fun, gain experience and see how I do. And if things go well, my goal is of course to be on the podium in the highest category in the 24-hour race.
"I want to gain experience now. You have to know your way around here. And if I should ever compete in the 24-hour race, I'll need the Nordschleife license, which I want to do now."
