No state support for Nurburgring after 2011 - minister

By on Monday, July 18, 2011

Jul.18 (GMM) This weekend's German grand prix will be the last race at the Nurburgring supported by the state, according to a government minister.

Earlier this year, it emerged that the new SPD/Green government alliance for the Rhineland-Palatinate state was only willing to support two more races at the Nurburgring until the current arrangements expire in 2016.

"Until 2016, there will be only one formula one grand prix sponsored financially by the land, and it's 2011," Eveline Lemke told business newspaper Handelsblatt. "That's it."
