German GP being shared

Post by Irv the Swerve »

Next year, the german grand prix will be held in nurburgring and the Hockenheim circuit will be used for the 2008 season. good to see that at least both circuits will be staging a grand prix at somestage.

I'm not sure how well that's going to work, i'm sure that Hockenheim was in financial trouble two years ago, without a GP every year I wonder how long it'll be until we see them back in the red?

Had they kept Hockenheim the same legendry circuit it once was, maybe we'd have both circuits on the calendar!

There should only be one race in European countries in this day and age, Countries like the US should have 2 try and promote the sport elsewhere in low key markets.
