    Save the Nurburgring

    This cant be good for the Nurburg fanatics:

    http://jalopnik.com/5684589/save-the-nurburgring

    Germany's Nürburgring is the world's automotive playground. A public park for gearheads. Sadly, it's been handed over to privateers who've put the entire 'Ring at risk. Michael Frison of 20832.com explains why we need to save the Nürburgring!

    Sure, we dont have to worry about viking raids or scurvy anymore, but instead we make a daily routine of sitting in flimsy, fibreglass (or metal) boxes full of gasoline which are propelled in opposing directions on the freeway at velocities matching that of low flying aircraft.

    This is a roundabout way of saying that cars are dangerous....

    imagine the upkeep cost!!!

    I got excited when I went to Germany as I was going to visit my aunty in 'Nuremberg'.

    I thought Nurburgring was english for Nuremberg Ring... Click here to enlarge

    A bit of a letdown..... Nuremberg did have one attraction... the Centre and training ground of Nazism.
