Noted racetrack impresario Bruton Smith of Speedway Motorsports reportedly wants to build a replica of the Nurburgring in the desert outside of Las Vegas. For any true car nut, a pilgrimage to the 'Ring is definitely of the lifetime To-Do list, especially on one of the open days when you can pay $20 to drive a lap of the 13.1 "Green Hell' I've been fortunate enough to do that three times in life, most recently in 2010. http://www.autoblog.com/2010/05/06/2011-buick-regal-first-drive-in-germany/
While it would certainly be cool to have a replica of the famed track, it just wouldn't be the same without the trees. On the other hand it would be a much more affordable way for automakers to test their cars than going all the way to Germany.
