That's a 7 hour round trip again to the nearest race those for us that used to be Croft regulars. I think I'll not bother again this year.

Scheduling the final round of BSB and WSBK on the same weekend is ridiculous.

At that time of year the inclement weather threatens to mess up the schedule, so we might end up missing some crucial title-deciding races.

I don't want to miss half of a potentially critical WSBK race to watch the end of a delayed BSS race!

Yet again MSVR heavily favour their own circuits. In a 12 event season do we need to visit Oulton twice and Brands three times?

I miss Croft, Mallory was OK and despite rumblings earlier in the year still no event for Bishopscourt. I may be in the minority here but I'd rather see BSB use one of Silverstone's smaller layouts like they used to as well.

For those that don't already know it is not that Croft is not offered a BSB round.

Croft, thanks to noise regs, has a very limited amount of days where racing at the noise levels created by BSB can happen. Sad fact is that for the circuit it is expensive hosting BSB, Other circuits can make their money back and get into profit because of concession stands ( fast food etc ) but Croft does not have any of its own facilities for this so has to allow others in to do it for a fixed fee. Truth of the matter is at best Croft can only break even hosting BSB where they can make a profit from using their allowed racing days for trackdays, corporate events etc.

Boils down to if Croft had BSB very soon the land & circuit would make a loss and end up being sold to developers.

This series is now a farce! With ridiculous rules and a ridiculous scoring system as well as a ridiculous calendar i shall not bother following it next year!

Like others have said we do not need to visit the same circuit twice, let alone three times and i agree Brands Indy is not good enough and Assen is not a British circuit for gods sake!

Get 'em going round some different circuits during the year. Drop the ridiculous showdown points system and allow them to pick the bikes up after a crash if they want to.

Rant over
