Does any one feel that the number of uk curcuit are shrinking, with 3 visits to Brans and 2 to Oulton park. Why is Rockingham not there? And are there any others they can visit ? Why not a visit to Ireland like Mondelo park.

Can't quite understand why Thruxton has been moved to mid-season and Oulton takes the second race slot. Generally the logic has been to start and finish the season on the southern curcuits and move north during the year due to weather. Early May at Oulton? Cold & wet.
