The World Touring Car Championship is weighing up the possibilities of racing at the 12.9 miles Nurburgring Nordschleife, this week's AUTOSPORT reveals.
WTCC boss Marcello Lotti confirmed that he had looked into the possibility of a pair of two-lap races at the circuit.
The series organiser also went on to say that the track would need to meet the safety requirements of the FIA.
"I have already looked at a two-lap race before the Nurburgring 24 Hours, but the circuit needs a grade-four licence from the FIA," Lotti told AUTOSPORT. "Even then, we would need the support of the manufacturers.
"But I tell you, if tomorrow this kind of traditional circuit can be homologated, or can have a homologation that permits us to run, why not? Seriously we can consider it, but we're not there yet."
