This is Palmer trying to protect his dominance of BSB tracks.
Good luck to Wales and don't pay Palmer his extortionate fees for hosting a BSB race.
I would have more sympathy for his views if he put something back into BSB, like giving money to teams that are scoring championship points and not putting it all into his pocket.

yes i think you are probably right on that score, as no way would he allow bsb to go to this new circuit as obviously he is/will be in competition with them.
i am surprised we still have Thruxton.

Sour grapes J Palmer there is only one circuit now in the uk that can stage Moto gp & F1 thats Silverstone,i read the Circuit of Wales will not try to stage F1,crcuits like Oulton Mallory park have been ruined by all the chicane's that have had to be installed for safety reasons,so whats the alternative build a new cicuit that can cope with todays racing machines.the circuit will be easy to get to just of the heads of the valleys road the a465 thats joins the motorway network ,Wales needs this circuit i would like to see BSB held there after all Wales not got a round but scotland got one on that mickey mouse circuit,however the prospect of that happening are not likely with JP owning the rights to BSB.White Elephant i doubt it.
