But someone unexpected is trying to help.
Typically, the fees for holding a Formula 1 race at your track are out of this world expensive. For 2013, Ecclestone has offered to waive the sanctioning fee for the track but will also be taking 100% of the revenue.
Ok, so his version of "doing everything" doesn't involve an injection of capital, but it also doesn't line his coffers as much as races past. It's a step in the right direction.
And who knows, maybe Ecclestone would consider purchasing and saving the track?
