There were temporary discussions "to include both automobile clubs." The AvD owns the rights to the Grand Prix of Germany name and "originally wanted a high amount for it should the race at the NÃ¼rburgring take place using this name."
If the ADAC "had been the organizer, the race would have been called Grand Prix of Europe." At the beginning of the negotiations, it became public that the ADAC, contrary to the AvD, "did not require any payments from race track operator NÃ¼rburgring Betriebsgesellschaft (NBG)."
It is unclear if this status has changed throughout the negotiations. An AvD spokesperson confirmed the agreement and said, "The contracts have been signed." Rhein Zeitung
