I've heard that it's closed except to cars with German plates - some rubbish about foreigners having too many accidents

Please no. I've only ever done 3 laps and was banking on getting two trips in this year.

That's one hell of a decision! Any links to verified story? (I'm not trying to doubt the original poster).

If true, surely it will KILL the local economy?! (and not least the sticker selling petrol station )

I think this is Pikey's way of trying to reduce congestion on the ring

Seems strange to install that new ticketing system to reduce congestion, and then ban ze non Germans.

Bit more information, apparently they'll be making exceptions for cars with PH stickers and drivers wearing a PH "One Track Mind" t-shirt...
