What they need more than anything is a bridge into the paddock so that no vehicles need to use the track to get in and out of the paddock.

Agree on the bridge - but can't see that happening any time soon - pity as for competitor wanting to leave they have a tiny window between races (tiny).

But they had done alot of mod mid 2010 and it looked alot better - these mods should only help.

It's a pity they didn't take the opportunity to improve the track layout.
The only thing stopping the BSB boys lapping in the mid 40 seconds was the car park quality surface and the two Mickey Mouse chicanes. Even with the improvements it has no place on the BSB calendar.

I agree. It's like racing round your local roundabout. Any circuit that needs 3 chicanes to make it "safe" doesn't deserve to be on the BSB calendar. We should never have gone back after we lost Ollie, God rest his soul.

Mallory park used to be one of the finest short circuit race tracks,that is untill it was totally destroyed with that rediculous "bus stop",equally rediculous Edwina,s chicane & gerrards bend "probably the best & most exciting corner on any circuit" yet again completely ruined by the so called, management !!!!!! Mallory was always regarded as a speed bowl & although modern race machines are much faster theses days,so to has the safety increased with slick tyres "stop on a sixpence brakes" & chassis design etc...Im quite sure that the riders of these modern day race bikes are more than capable of handleing their machines & would,nt approach corners like gerrards at break neck speed , even though the bikes are capable of it.......No wonder we wont be having BSB on the calender this year,or maybe ever again !!!! Congratulations management, because between you all you have sucseeded in destroying what used to be a great circuit !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@ Ash.. It was the Transatlantic Trophy my friend.. And they were top races indeed.. But times change.. The Mallory paddock isn't big enough before we even get to the track.. It really isn't up to it.. There's been massive debates on here about the Brookes accident.. But no matter which side of the fence you sit on there isn't much doubt the track surface played it's part in the accident as well.. I really hope they can do something with it I like the place..
