Sec­ond-rate cir­cuit

MCN - - LIFE ON BIKES - Steve Har­ris, Es­sex Ed: Trou­ble is, if we don't back the race we may lose it al­to­gether

Richard New­land (MCN, Septem­ber 26) urged read­ers to give Sil­ver­stone an­other chance to get it right af­ter the Mo­toGP de­ba­cle. I dis­agree. Heavy rain in 2000 turned the F1 race into a muddy mess, which was later rec­ti­fied through im­proved ac­cess and park­ing. In 2018 heavy rain again caused prob­lems, but the prin­ci­ple cause of race can­cel­la­tion was a newly laid track. Track boss Stu­art Pringle should have re­signed the next day, but failed to do so. As Brits, we con­tinue to ac­cept sec­ond rate con­di­tions and ser­vice, while the world laughs at our fail­ures. Make Bri­tain great again by not ac­cept­ing sec­ond rate in all that we do or pay for.
