‘I WOULDN’T WANT TO LOSE IT OFF THE MOTOGP CALENDAR’
Bradley Smith: Stay
While British fans will all have their opinion on where the British Grand Prix should be held in the future, they’re not the only ones who can’t agree – as shown when we asked Cal Crutchlow and Bradley Smith where they’d like to see the event held in the future.
“Silverstone is for me a track designed for Motogp – and Donington really isn’t. It has a very nice layout, it’s very good for spectators, but Silverstone is really designed to let us open up a Grand Prix bike and really crack on with it, with the fast, flowing nature of the track. It’s one of our rare chances to do that every year, and I wouldn’t want to lose it off the calendar.”
Cal Crutchlow: Move
“I had a great race at Silverstone last year, I’ve had some fantastic rides there over my career but I’d probably want to do something different. I think from the rider’s perspective as well as a fan’s perspective Silverstone can be a bit boring. There’s not a huge amount of elevation at Silverstone. It is fast, but fast is not always great. And people can’t get close, I love it when people can get close to the track and enjoy it.”
