    Yeah, interesting how the runner-ups (American Group) to purchase the Ring' got muscled out by these guys. They were offering up the same amount from the initial sale and were ready to go and all of a sudden, Russians are in the picture? Something smells fishy.

    LOL! Hey, I'm sure Chancellor Merkel wants to make sure her people don't freeze to death this winter!

    Who would have thought the Nurburgring would become a geopolitical chess piece?

    Or chess board? Perhaps all healthy world leaders under the age of 65 should have to drive a lap of the Nordschliefe as a character test.
