But German media reports say a few other parties are also interested in buying the fabled Nurburgring.

The Kolner Express and Bild newspapers claim Red Bull team owner Dietrich Mateschitz - who bought, demolished, rebuilt and launched the former A1-Ring in Austria - is one potential bidder.

Another is the Nurburgring track boss Jorg Linder, and yet another is the German automobile club ADAC (Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club).

"The bids must all be placed by September," said Bild.
