basically the ring is debt of aprox 400 million euros and potentially being privatized and thusly destroyed by the privateers to make room for a theme park hotel and mall? that's my understanding of it.

Before you donate, did you research why they are in debt? Could be like giving money to GM. I love the ring but f it..they ain't taking my money. I'm in debt and I'm yet to see a check from them.

I'm with Biggee. Let the Germans bail themselves out if it's such an item of national heritage. :lol:

Of all the causes in the world...... :dur:

I'd be interested in donating if I got the chance to drive on it, however, I don't see that happening.

So I forsee my money going to big tobacco and breweries instead...

On the actual nurburgring fb page they are denying most of the information. Looks like donations are going to nigeria.

Join the "Save the Ring" group on facebook. We need to at least help spread the word of this disaster waiting to happen.

I'd donate 10 bucks to keep it open.

Please rease and then spread the word to the other forums you visit. I was sad when Memphis Motorsport closed a while back, but id be devastated if The Ring went under.

Most folks here are in the US and will never visit or drive on the Nurburgring. Spend your money on a more local 'charitable' cause, maybe one that could build such a street acar racetrack stateside.
