To Clarkson, "Use tax payers money to save a race track (hardly anyone wants to visit?)
if enough people used it to start with it would not have gone bust in the first place
what a dick head of a comment?
premier ? its a dump full stop
it has no BSB no MGP no WSB (i take it you don't work in accounting?) what the hell is the point in saving it"
Yes tax payers money, this time to good use at "HOME" instead of wasting it on other countries( WOULD BE NICE FOR A CHANGE) & as far as "hardly anyone want to visit", well i have been there more than a few times recently & even with the crap facilities big crowds were present.
As far as it going bust , well i dont think that was because of the lack of support for the circuit, more of bad management of available funds & trying to make changes without sufficient funds being in place prior to beginning the work!
Obviously at the present time Donington has lost all of the major series but had it not have been for the aforementioned mis-management & twisting pussies not having to slum it for a few hours it may not have done so!!
Some of us, nay a lot of us, will remember the great times we have spent at Donington Park over the years before silly rules were introduced in the camping area etc. We will also remember the Saturday night biker parties in the exibition centre followed by the fantastic racing the next day.
Just because you have an obvious total hatred of Donington Park please dont asume that the rest of us have the same hatred & also a lot of people who are interested in watching live premier motorcycling events do actually live north of Birmingham & a 200 mile trip not only costs alot but is quite a few hours of boring travel.
I for one dont like Silverstone as a spectator for bike racing but i will be making the 200+ mile trip there to support motorcycle racing this year & hopefully the new layout will be a much needed improvement to be enjoyed by all .
At the end of the day if i dont happen to enjoy my trips to Silverstone i still certainly WOULD NOT BE HAPPY TO SEE ITS DEMISE IN ANY SHAPE OR FORM UNLIKE YOURSELF ABOUT DONINGTON PARK.
