Die DTM plant dieses Jahr wieder mit dem Klassiker im © Hankook The DTM is planning again this year with the classic in the "Franconian Monaco"

A year ago, Norisring organizer MCN sounded the alarm: If the DTM classic was canceled the coronavirus crisis threatens bankruptcy and thus the end of the traditional race. So how could the worst be prevented and the budget gap filled?

"We survived because we called a big fundraising campaign", explains Wolfgang Schlosser, CEO of the Motorsport Club Nürnberg, in an interview with 'Motorsport-Total.com'. "This is how we raised 30,000 euros."

Who supported the Norisring? "We turned to members, friends, acquaintances and companies who had worked or participated in the Norisring for years," explains Schlosser - referring to the Nuremberg industry, but also car dealers and other companies.

100 best albums from the ’60s

  100 best albums from the ’60s Stacker compiled the top 100 albums of the 1960s, according to Best Ever Albums, which ranks albums according to their appearance and performance on 40,000 charts.

"Then there is no longer a Norisring"

"We asked them to help us - and said to them: 'You all benefit from the Norisring and can invite customers to the event. And if the Motorsport Club Nürnberg no longer exists, then there will be no more Norisring either. Please help us to survive and please donate something. '"

With success, as the result shows:" There were many who donated 200 or 500 euros, "says the MCN Boss. "And one or the other company also donated 1,000 euros. Many thanks to everyone - that helped us a lot."

Without the support, things would have looked bleak for the MCN, explains Schlosser, because, in contrast to permanent racetracks, you have to store the construction material for the whole year, which costs 140,000 euros.

"We have to pay rent for our office, we have to store all the equipment, our concrete guardrails, tire six-packs, fences and so on," explains Schlosser. "And we have a permanent employee. Everyone else does it on a voluntary basis. And that's how we survived - until the next race."

Homa gets another chance and wins hometown event at Riviera

  Homa gets another chance and wins hometown event at Riviera LOS ANGELES — Winning at Riviera was always a dream for Max Homa since he first attended the PGA Tour event as a toddler. He never could have scripted a finish like Sunday at the Genesis Invitational. Homa missed a 3-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole for the win. On the first playoff hole, he appeared to have no chance when his tee shot settled inches from a tree. He somehow escaped to extend the playoff, and won it on the next hole when hard-luck Tony Finau failed to save par from a bunker on the par-3 14th.

fears about race 2021: was Aus just delayed?

With the money from the fundraising campaign, operations could be guaranteed until the DTM races planned for this year on July 3rd and 4th and the loss cushioned. But what happens if the race has to be canceled again due to the persistent coronavirus crisis?

"If we get Corona under control and our race takes place in front of spectators, then it will continue without any problems," says Schlosser, explaining the current situation. "But if we don't get a race together like in 2020, then I don't know how we're going to survive the next winter or the next twelve months."

After all, there are currently no FIA or DMSB requirements that make reconstruction work on the route necessary. "We couldn't make any big leaps at the moment," says Schlosser. A race in front of empty ranks is out of the question in 2021 in contrast to the previous year . So you have to hope for a miracle again.
