Touristenfahrten protected under Nürburgring sale

Nurburgring Touristenfahrten

In among the possible gloom of a forced sale of the Nürburgring, including the 20.8km Nordschleife, it appears the ability for the public to continue experiencing the ‘Green Hell’ will be protected, as this comment from Joe Saward states:

One of the requirements of the sale is that the circuit must remain available for the general public to use, either as spectators or for drives around the track. This means that it cannot be turned into an exclusive motor racing ‘country club’ of the type that has become popular in the United States in recent years.

We’re pleased to see Touristenfahrten days look safe for now. But we still think it is right to question either the pricing motives or long-term availability of public days until the intentions of any new owner become clear.
