Nurburgring eyes F1 rescue plan

2012-07-26 11:59

NO MORE RACES AT THE 'RING: Organisers are hoping the FIA comes to its aid and prevents Germany's Nurburgring from being dropped from the Formula 1 calendar.

Formula 1 race organisers of Germany's Nurburgring are considering buying the embattled circuit.

"We have developed a concept for the F1 race at the Nurburgring that does not require a cash grant from the state."
