‘I WOULDN’T WANT TO LOSE IT OFF THE MO­TOGP CAL­EN­DAR’

Bradley Smith: Stay

Motorcycle News (UK) - - SPORT -

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.”
