NuveauRing. Time attack may cause blood clotting. Do not use if smoking, constipated, dizzy, fevered, or in renal failure. NuveauRing might not be safe for some vehicles. Check with your mechanic to see if NuveauRing is right for you...

Even at 175M that's cheap. Why on earth is it even for sale? The most prestigious stretch of track on the planet for 175M? C'mon. Something stinks here.

Probably maintenance, which cannot be cheap on that much road. As well as liability insurance, remember free access to the public

Well I was thinking more along the lines of a dual contraceptive. It's a ring so technically it can be used on the guys too.

Not me! Much easier/cheaper to rent it if you have that kind of money.

Capricorn is saying all of the right things about its plans for the Green Hell. During the press conference that announced the sale, it said that motorsport will be the focal point of its ownership, and the track will remain open to the public. It wants to work with companies to create a technology center there and bring more industry to the Nürburgring region. The company already has an office at the 'Ring that supplies lightweight components to automakers and racing teams, according to RP Online.

According to Piston Heads, which attended the press conference, Capricorn's bid arrived with minutes to spare. It beat HIG Capital, which reportedly offered between 60 million and 70 million euros ($83.2 million to $97 million), because of the promise to bring new business to the area.
So close to American soil. ;<

Cant they just build another Nurburgring or better right here in the U.S for $92M?
How much money are they going to make off of it? And will they be stuck with all the maintenance cost?

Wasn't someone already trying to do this in Nevada?


Edit:
Yep, it was talked about in 2012 then promptly went away.
