Mateschitz eyeing Nurburgring rescue
Two more candidates have emerged as potential buyers of the embattled Nurburgring.
F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone, already controlling the Paul Ricard and Istanbul tracks, revealed this weekend he is "thinking about" rescuing the financially-troubled German grand prix venue.
But German media reports say a few other parties are also interested in buying the fabled Nurburgring.
The Kolner Express and Bild newspapers claim Red Bull team owner Dietrich Mateschitz - who bought, demolished, rebuilt and launched the former A1-Ring in Austria - is one potential bidder.
Another is the Nurburgring track boss Jorg Linder, and yet another is the German automobile club ADAC (Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club).
"The bids must all be placed by September," said Bild.
