They may well do, it's whether or they would let tourists on it that worries me. Can't believe no one else has posted in this thread.

It was posted ages ago, but dnt think ppl(like ourself) genuinely it would go to sale under the hammer.
€120mill alot of cash, but if they were attracting enough tourists would that not cover it?

Or even let racing back to it such
f1
moto gp
dtm
le mans

Am sure one of them everyyear would produce good enough money,
Think biggest track ever, 14.2mile or something.
The track has everything in it from
Chicanes to
Straights to
Camber changes
Everything
Just th crowd attraction at most of those event would generate some turnover i think.

It's one of my favourite places on earth, love every aspect of it and the surrounding area.

The track isn't upto standards to have super bikes or F1. Little to no run off at best.
Personally I love the place and had many days there and good laps but its a dying thing now with all the idiots in clapped out cars thinking they are the new vettel et al.

The F1 circuit is the only real asset it has to businesses to use if it can get the F1 permanently.

All my opinion tho

Crv probs could go round the track, quick in 4x4 terms.
But regardless if you are in a:
Crv
R32
M5
F150
Westminster
Superleggra
Gsxr 1000
Or Transit

ONE BAD DECISION OR FAULT
And you could be lucky to walk away from it.
Yeah you say it could that track,
Lets be honest tho, how many times have you seen a rolled motor or something that wrote off, on a B-Road or stretch of road you know everyone floors along that bit.

I really don't know mate, don't think the gents in the vid touched upon that.

I agree that taking a trip to The Ring is not too removed from smashing it down your favourite B roads. It's a place that demands respect, but I've seen plenty of people bring their cars home.
