Support grows for British Nürburgring

Could a public race circuit regenerate the local area and create a safer environment for those wishing to explore their vehicle's potential?

A CAMPAIGN to build a British version of the Nürburgring is growing in support.

The campaign started off the back of an existing project which proposed to build a MotoGP circuit at Ebbw Vale in Wales. This proposal was dubbed "a real game-changer" for the area by local MP Nick Smith.

The group behind the petition cite the example set by the Nürburgring in Germany, where its prescence has created a wealth of opportunity for local businesses through a healthy tourism industry which has rejuvenated the area, helping it to build schools, hospitals and leisure facilities.

The group also say a British Nürburgring would: "..be a centre for the public to explore speed in a safe environment, instead of on public roads causing harm to themselves and others." A public circuit on which to explore your vehicle's potential could also cut the NIMBY approach most counties have to speeding.

The petition for a British Nürburgring currently has over 1,500 signatures. If you'd like to see it happen, you can sign the petition here.
