The government of the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate is set to make hundreds of million of euros available to the Nürburgring. This will guarantee that a loan be partially paid, making it possible for the Nürburgring to continue to operate.

According to Germany's Deutsche Welle, officials in the West German state came to the decision to keep the track afloat during a special meeting of the state legislature's budget and finance committee. The loan, in the amount of €254 million ($312 million) enables Nürburgring GmbH, who operates the track, to service a €330 million loan ($402M). That payment will allow the track to keep operating.

According to the report, several members of German government pushed for the delay of this move, citing that such a maneuver could be illegal under European law.

The wold-famous racetrack has fallen on hard times, and this bailout appears to be essential in its bid to stay afloat. The original loan taken out by the track's investors was to build a supporting mall and a roller coaster. Neither of these attractions has proven successful, leaving investors to plead for a bailout from the EU.

No word on how this will effect Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone and his commitment to "do everything" to save the 'Ring. If still committed, it likely just became a $312 million more manageable undertaking for Bernie to do so.

      Loan guarantee, people. That means the government is a co-signer of the loan to whoever buys it. It does not mean the government is spending that money (unless it all goes pear shaped again) and they still have to find someone to purchase the assets and come up with a viable business plan to make it profitable. Let's hope some scheister (Bernie??) doesn't take the loans, siphon off the money, and 3 years from now we are right back in the same place.

        Hope? 3 years ago, in summer 2009, our finance minister in Rhineland-Palatinate resigned after project "Nürburgring 2009" had cost up to 350 million euro of tax money. That was way above the planned budget and of those 50%+ private investment you could see more or less 0%. So sorry if i cannot be optimistic...

      Hello am Murcas cafes, my business collapse 8 months ago, I had no hope of 
      getting my business alife again.I tried to borrow money from the bank but I did not have 
      enough money in my credit card and no property as collateral to get a loan, but 
      someone introduced me to a woman called JULIA NAVARO. This woman`s loan company was 
      able to give me a loan of $30,000 without any property as
      collateral or credit card, but he gave it to me on trust. So my friends I 
      said to myself why being selfish, so i decided to share this information 
      with everyone. If you require a loan from a reliable loan lender do contact 
      JULIA NAVARO on navaroloancompany@gmail.com
