The Struggling Nurburgring Racetrack Secures Three Races For Its '13 Race Calendar
The German Automobile Association (ADAC) "signed an agreement with the operators of the Nurburgring racetrack that secures several races at the historic circuit in '13," according to Markus Lüttgens of MOTORSPORT-TOTAL.com. After a number of negative headlines in previous months, the Nurburgring "has some exciting news." The 24h race, the Truck Grand Prix and the GT-Masters will all take place at the racetrack in '13. A corresponding agreement "has been signed between race operator ADAC and racetrack operator Nurburgring Automotive GmbH." The ongoing insolvency proceedings of the state-owned Nurburgring GmbH "have no influence on the contracts' fulfillment." NAG CEO Karl-Josef Schmidt said, "The Nurburgring GmbH accepted the agreement. Therefore the contracts are valid even in the case of an operator change" (MOTORSPORT-TOTAL.com, 9/11).
