Mallory Park 'disappointed' to be left off calendar

Mallory Park reacts to the decision not to be featured on the British Superbike schedule in 2011.
Mallory Park organisers have expressed their disappointment at the decision by MSV not to include its circuit on the 2011 British Superbike Championship calendar.

The Leicestershire circuit has featured on the BSB schedule since 1995 (with the exception of 2003), but has been left off the 12-round calendar for 2011.

With Donington Park returning and Brands Hatch getting three events, Mallory Park general manager John Ward was at a loss to explain why the circuit – one of the favourites among fans – has not been included.

“It is disappointing for motorcycle fans in the midlands that Mallory Park is not on the 2011 British Superbike race schedule. Mallory Park allows some of the best racing in the UK and the crowds could see much of the action around the track from many different vantage points, something not many circuits can match.

“However we can assure the motorcycle fans that attend Mallory to see top line motorcycle racing that we will not let the grass grow under our feet and are already working on a major event to fill the void.

“We are confident that this event will be just as exciting in nature and will retain Mallory Park's status as one of the foremost motorcycle racing venues in the country.”

Modern racing bikes have long since outgrown Mallory, BSB racing is a safety car/red flag fest as it is without taking into account Mallory's additional layout issues.

Sad to say but Mallory Park is not up to holding a Superbike race, that ridiculous chicane halfway round Gerrards, the other one at the end of that straight, it's too nadgery for big bikes. Although Donington is not as good for spectating the whole track it does produce great racing for big bikes.
