Nice one!

If there was going to be a non Uk round of BSB my 2 favourite circuits are Spa & Assen.

This could be a masterstroke for BSB,for years we have known it to be the best domestic championship & this will put it on the international scene.

As long a Palmer puts up decent travelling expences for the teams and riders, its a great ideal - lets have a round in Ireland as well..

If its a scheme to fill someones pocket with money.... thats diffrent.

So much for cost cutting, lets transport everyone to another country.

I'm also a bit p'd off that it's in place of Croft as it's the only circuit within a couple of hours of here.

im really glad we are going to assen as it will hopefully bring in potential sponsors from abroad, by that im hoping thats the case for the teams and riders and not lining the bsb owners pockets!

i really dont see the point in brands hatch indy just go there twice and use gp circuit, indy circuit is a joke too many bikes on circuit for qualy and racing! why lose croft!!!

Great news. Just a shame they've decided to go all Evo. If i wanted to watch superstock, i'd watch it. I want to see factory Hondas and Kawasakis in their finest form screaming around the track with the high profile tuning, not a ton of Evo bikes.

Same with Motogp, why is all the development going backwards ? yes i want to see better racing but not at this cost. bit of a joke really.

Assen is a great track & super atmosphere, but where is this series going?
It's supposed to be a BRITISH championship.
But if you live in Northumberland (& now no Croft) then it is a massive trek to Cadwell or Knockhill.
If you live in the South West or Wales, then the closest is Thruxton (although I note today a plan to put a new circuit in South Wales).
If you live in Northern Ireland, well just forget about it.
Basically the series caters for the South West fans (who also will find it easiest to get to Assen) and to some extent North West England. The rest, well we just don't seem to count.
