Time for BSB to move on from Knock­hill

Scot­tish track isn’t good enough for mod­ern bikes

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Can some­one ex­plain to me why the BSB se­ries in­cludes Knock­hill? Why use a very short, nar­row, bumpy, sin­gle rac­ing line track which al­ways seems to have more crashes and injuries than usual? From the Eurosport cov­er­age, most of the rid­ers don’t like it, the qual­i­fy­ing ses­sion was a fi­asco and the way the bikes move sug­gests the track is a tar­mac-sur­faced en­duro course. If it has to be re­tained for some ob­scure rea­son, at least en­sure it isn’t sched­uled after a six-week break and prefer­ably early enough in the sea­son as not to af­fect sig­nif­i­cantly the out­come. From the TV spec­ta­tor per­spec­tive on June 18, the teams and rid­ers may as well have pulled the re­sults out of a hat and I fast for­warded at least half the cov­er­age – good rac­ing it was not!
