My Christmas Day isn't coming back

With the African round not being replaced in World Superbikes this means there's no hope of Brands Hatch not coming back to stage it's brilliant weekend of great racing and fun packed campsite  at realistic prices (unlike rip off  Silverstone )Im really disappointed I've emailed MSVs Jonathan Palmer many times begging for a return of "good times " but with no luck although he had the decency to reply .But there you go as my headline says no return of my Christmas Day !
