WHAT THE FANS ARE SAY­ING

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Matt Wakins

“Typ­i­cal of this coun­try. So much red tape around ev­ery­thing. Two car man­u­fac­tur­ers have been at­tracted to the area by the prospect of this cir­cuit as a test venue and now the rug is pulled from un­der their feet”

Gavin Wil­liams

“So hav­ing roughly 750,000 vis­i­tors a year, 6000-plus jobs, deals from Mo­togp and BTCC and mul­ti­ple big com­pa­nies such as As­ton Martin and TVR to use this track as a test­ing ground is an un­ac­cept­able risk? What rub­bish!”

Tracey Hol­land

“Try liv­ing in the val­leys. We don’t get a look in, and that would have been ideal for bring­ing jobs to the here. It makes me sick”
