Ecclestone Hoping Nurburgring will Host 2013 German GP

By Community | January 8, 2013

Bernie Ecclestone has revealed the Nurburgring should still stage this year’s German GP as scheduled and hopes to have a deal for the race to go ahead soon.

Uncertainty surrounding the venue for the 2013 German round has existed for months with the Nurburging – which is due to take its turn hosting the event as part of its race-share agreement with Hockenheim – engulfed by financial problems since last year.

But Ecclestone has suggested he is in ongoing talks with Nurburging officials organisers and hopes the July 7 race will take place at the venue.

“It should be the Nurburgring and we are trying to make it happen,” Ecclestone told Reuters.

“I’m talking with them today.”
