Video: Sabine Schmitz Needs You To Help Save The Nurburgring

Follow Viknesh

Neither the Nurburgring nor one of its master drivers Sabine Schmitz needs any introduction on this site, but what needs to be addressed is the issue that the famous German racing circuit is in financial distress.

With debts nearing the $650 million mark, the German government has been called in to help bail the Nurburgring out, although this may mean the track will be extensively changed and placed under the control of private firms that would see it turned into a theme park. Some of the proposals include the construction of a rollercoaster, a museum, a  5000-seat grandstand and even a hotel.

A new Facebook group--Save The Ring--has been established to expand awareness on the ‘Ring’s plight and is being promoted with videos like the one below starring Sabine Schmitz.

For all auto fans, this is definitely a worthy cause so follow the jump below and as Sabine says, keep yourself informed.

  1. 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.. I thought the most famous of all race/road course would have made a lot of money just from trademarks alone.
    They sure did pick the right person to promote awareness, and we all love you Sabine!
    I'm sure you'll get a lot of support.
