All Sabine Schmitz wants for Christmas is for us to save the Nurburgring

Posted on by + 9

It’s a typical scenario. A business is in trouble and a few suits come in and promise the world only to deliver a patch of dead grass and some dog poop for fertilizer. It happens all of the time and, unfortunately, there is little anyone can do to stop it. The only problem we have with this - other than the obvious distress of it all - is the fact that these suits in question are messing with the famous Nurburgring.

That’s right, apparently the most talked about track in the world is in trouble - approximately 400 Million Euros in trouble - and the only thing being done about it is a bit of a renovation by a couple of privateers who have rented out the track and park with a promise of private financing. This renovation brings a new roller coaster, extra hotel capacity, a new event arena, and, of course, a shopping mall, all of which are facilitating the demise of the beloved track. And to think, all it really needed was extra parking and a good handyman.

Now, in an effort to Save the ’Ring, Sabine Schmitz, driver of the BMW "Ring taxi," is campaigning for the Nurburgring’s triumph over their financial woes. Check out the video and "stay informed."

I don’t get it. Why does Nurburgring suffer from a financial woe? Don’t tell me they haven’t saved any from those multi-millionaire company that uses their track? However, if they are really short when it comes to the budget, they shouldn’t put all the architecture that they are planning.

I will definitely accept it when Hamann will give my money back! I don’t understand why supercar maker done this. Lamborghini is much better!

My favorite race track on GT5 is definitely is the Nurburgring . ZR1 though record an amazing laps time.

Haha. Looks like a Lamborghini Murcielago! Even the side mirror is somewhat similar!

heads snapping back at Antoniusbuche is when she remembers to hit that button...

Hamann Victory II equips with 20 inch Edition Race rims with a special varnish in order to emphasize the new dynamic look. At the same time, the reduced unsprung masses improve the handling and the acceleration and braking response.

The car defaults to 400 hp after restarting the engine and the Sabine had forgot to put it back to full power at the beginning.

well I thought the most famous of all race/road course would have made a lot of money just from trademarks alone.

Beside all the racing/everyday track events at the "Ring" and then having been previewed at TopGear/Fifth Gear and others, afterwards rendered in CGI maybe a hundred times or more on most driving/racing games.
