purists have argued that the amusement park, shopping center etc. turned a race venue into a disney wannabe and that's part of what was causing the financial troubles, so selling that crap off to the highest bidder would be a step in the right direction anyways.
hopefully the article is correct that the track itself will survive this.

it's hard to say. a lot of private companies have financial troubles, but certainly having the "state" run anything business related is a recipe for eventual problems.

Interesting how such a popular venue could bankrupt like this. You think that it would do well enough to sustain itself.
Gas prices. Environmental issues. Insurance costs. A myriad of reasons combined could lead to a venue like this having financial trouble.

I don't know the specifics about the park, but Europe also is having a rough time, at the moment, too.
Building amusement parks or other tourist related projects, at this time, isn't the most prudent venture to start now.
