F1 » Donington can still host 2010 British GP, says Gillett


His company Donington Ventures Leisure Ltd (DVLL) might be in administration and rival circuit Silverstone might insist that it is closer than ever to agreeing terms with F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone, but Simon Gillett insists Donington Park could yet host the 2010 British Grand Prix

He's lost the plot! He couldn't even raise the money needed to get the circuit up to standard, how is he going to do it when the administrators are in. As far as I can see he's ruined a good circuit and lost the MotoGP.......what a great business head he has.

Just a guise to put more pressure on Silverstone.
Fool. If he could not make it viable in 2 years, give up, go away.
Bernie is only leaking these stories to get Silverstone to sign a dubious contract that will outlive him. The contract is another story.

Of course it is possible, but then so is anything with enough money and effort. The reality is that if BE took over, he could make it work, maybe this was his plan all along, we will see, I believe that the BRDC should tell F1 to go away until they are talking a long term SENSIBLE VIABLE plan. How do we know what the value of F1 is in 15 years?? I can,t be bothered much more with it, the politics, after race rulings, cheating.

Cuckoo, cuckoo!!!!!
Will this guy not shut up!???
Even if they do get offered thr GP for 2010, with all th ebad weather Britain has had, and his cash flow's, there is no way, that Donnington will have all the work finished in time.
Please Bernie, tell him to go away, and to take that smug grin off his face!!!
