TT races in Birmingham? North Circular GP?

Transport minister Mike Penning has announced a consultation document which, if passed as law, would allow councils to hold bike (or car) races on public roads. This would bring mainland UK in line with Northern Ireland, where the councils arrange all manner of commendably unhinged road races. Penning said: "There is a huge following for motor sports in this country and yet...

Devon Delights

There are some potentially very nice loops in Devon. I could also act as a huge boost top the Tourist industry. As a Cumbrian who grew up in the lakes they could provide the most spectacular event ever.

Lakes TT?

Definitely a Lake District TT in Cumbria. Haven't thought about the full route, but the Kirkstone Pass road would be a good challenge.

NORTHWEST 200

I do not think so as it is the highest attended pure roads race on the calendar. Ciao

hire a bloody proof reader

I assume you mean Northern Ireland, not Island.

MCN has the highest rate of typo errors of any publication I've ever read. Hire a proof reader please.

That aside, I'd love to see road racing in England. I used to go to the NW200 every year when I was growing up, brilliant memories.

I think a 4-5 mile route would work best with proper racing not rally style, time trials. I bet you could build a route around a new-town style project, or would that defeat the point?
