bailing out a private business with tax payer's money is NEVER a good sign from a government. as much as I hate the banksters being bailout I hate to see this hapenning also with a private track.

@Dylan - it is better than letting it be developed like the Sudcliffe was. Once something like this is gone it is gone forever. This track really is a national treasure for Germany.

I can't believe some people have disagreed that I'm happy if the Nordschleife stays open!!!! Do you know how I feel better than I do myself? Christ! Some people! Quick - disagree with this comment as well !!!! FYI, the Nordschleife is a government-owned toll road the same as all other toll roads in Germany - and YOU pay for your laps, not the DE government!
Maybe if these 'disagree-ers' had the balls to go full crack on a 160+ corner track on a Superbike they'd know / understand me better haha. Quick, disagree with me PLEASE.

When the new Nurburgring was built it was regarded by many as safe but boring. Nowadays compared to some of the new tracks it's one of the better tracks, a nice setting,has good racing and bags of atmosphere and nostalgia for me, due to the fact it's beside one of the oldest purpose built tracks in the world. I dont care how they keep it open as long as it's kept open!
