After years of financial trouble, the publicly-owned Nurburgring has finally been sold and privatized. Dusseldorf-based automotive supplier Capricorn has won the bid to purchase the Nurburgring.
Capricorn beat out American firm HIG Capital in its bid for the Ring. The deal is reported to be for approximately 100 million Euro, with an upfront investment of 25 million Euro (to expand/improve the track).
Capricorn produces engine components and employs more than 350 employees. The company already has an on-site factory at the Nurburgring which manufactures crankshafts, camshafts, pistons, and other engine parts. Its parts have been used in 10 F1 maufacturer’s championships, 9 F1 driver’s world championships, 10 WRC manufacturer championships, 3 NASCAR Sprint Cup wins, 7 overall Le Mans wins, 10 Dakar wins, among others.
