Thumbs up for Cadwell

Have to say that the Cadwell Park circuit looked super over the weekend, with grass cut neat and tidy and very well set out. I've not see a crowd like that since the high days of Sheene. It got to be one of the best spectators' and racers' circuits in the UK. But when are they going to put a bridge over the start/finish straight?
