Would really be a shame to lose The Nurburgring. Ironic track for as long as I can remember. Watching F1 as a boy, Jackie Stewart nick naming it the 'Green Hell' and Niki Laudas wreck there all the way to recent times with all the sports car makers running against the clock to nail good times to take a place near the top of the Official Ring list.
I think many of us refer to the list to see where the cars we like(or own) place. Bragging Rights to the max.
I almost did the ED when I bought my BMW. Had it all planned out as far as countries visited and what to do. Of course the Ring was on our itinerary but the wife and I couldnt coordinate schedules so we didnt do it. Still had it on my bucket list though. I hope it can be saved.
