Now we need to make Sil­ver­stone siz­zle

Cir­cuit of Wales fail­ure must not mean an end to Brit GP

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

The lat­est news con­cern­ing the Welsh Gov­ern­ment’s re­fusal to sup­port fur­ther pub­lic in­vest­ment in the Cir­cuit of Wales, sig­nalling a prob­a­ble end to the project, will come as no sur­prise to those of us who saw right from the out­set that this scheme was never go­ing to hap­pen. The fo­cus now must be on main­tain­ing a full Bri­tish GP at Sil­ver­stone in the com­ing years, and I would ask MCN, on be­half of its read­ers, to seek as­sur­ances that the Bri­tish GP will not be put in jeop­ardy as a re­sult of the fool­har­di­ness of the COW de­vel­op­ers in their haste to snatch the con­tract from Sil­ver­stone. It as­ton­ishes me that Dorna could be so reck­less as to award the con­tract to a com­pany which not only didn’t have a cir­cuit built, but had never ob­tained the nec­es­sary fund­ing to see it through. Andy Rob­son, Birm­ing­ham
