Thumbs up Bernie Ecclestone might buy the Nurburgring!

Hah, it seems there might be a light at the end of a long, frightening tunnel for the Nurburgring.

F1 boss, Bernie Ecclestone seems to emerge as the savior for the legendary "ring".

Nurburgring boss Jorg Lindner has confirmed it is "possible" Bernie Ecclestone will buy the embattled German grand prix venue.

Die Rheinpfalz newspaper reported on Thursday that, with the circuit having entered an insolvency process, F1's chief executive was looking into buying the Nurburgring.

"I want to meet the people from the Nurburgring," Ecclestone told Bild newspaper this week. "We want to see if we can help them."

When asked about Ecclestone's reported interest in buying the fabled track, Nurburgring Automotive GmbH chief Lindner said: "I can not judge the economic interests of Bernie Ecclestone.

"But anything is possible," he is quoted by the German news agency SID.
Lindner is also considering heading a management-buyout of the beleaguered circuit, meaning he insists the prospect of a 2013 race at the Nurburgring is "very realistic".

But he said the direction must be clear within the "next four to six weeks".
And "The marketing for 2013 would need to start soon," Lindner also cautioned.

Its official, "The Green Hell" is on sale

Officials have confirmed that the ring is for sale and has not yet finalized if to sell it as a whole or in sections.

Hope some big names get involved and preserve the iconic racetrack as it is.
