Bernie Eccelstone

F1 boss Eccelstone could be the Nürburgring’s last hope

We brought you the news late last week that the famed Nürburgring race course in Germany is facing dire debt problems that will likely send it into government controlled bankruptcy if someone doesn’t swoop in and “save the ring” – and now it appears that F1 boss Bernie Eccelstone could be that special someone.

The Nürburgring is millions of dollars in debt and having already borrowed and squandered a massive chunk of money from the European Union, the only hope for the Ring appears to be either a company looking to buy the huge racing facility or a single individual with a whole lot of money. Bernie Eccelstone, President and CEO of the F1 racing association, just happens to be an individual with a whole lot of money and between his financial wealth and his globally popular racing league – Eccelstone has pledged to do what he can to help keep the legendary race track in operation.
