Ecclestone to Buy the Nurburgring?

Don't worry, we've included plenty of pictures of his daughter.

It’s thought a bid in the region of $170 million will be enough to buy the complete Nurburgring package. For billionaires such as Bernie Ecclestone that’s not quite pocket change but it’s not far off. And it appears the 82-year-old F1 boss is considering splashing out on the Ring with his final decision to be made “in a few months.” Speaking with Die Welt, Ecclsetone said he was thinking about buying the circuit in order to maintain the status quo of the current German gran prix set up, which alternates between the Nurburgring and Hockenheim.

Ecclestone also said that future F1 races are being planned in Thailand and Azerbaijan, while two new races at Long Beach and New Jersey combined with the current race in Austin will take America’s grand prix complement to three. While the focus of this story is Bernie, his daughter Tamara is much better looking. So we’ve used pictures of her instead. We hope you approve.
