Food malls? Shopping experiences? Mate, go to Brands Hatch and learn what makes a great track. Undulations, sweeping bends without miles of asphalt run-off, trees, atmosphere... was the Nordschleife legendary because they had Starbucks and McDonalds on the infield? Jesus wept.

I saw Richard Phillips interview at Silverstone this weekend and was some incensed to hear him talk of the big step forward the circuit had made this year.
Well I hope that he gets feed back on the camping toilet facilities a DISGRACE !! and an insult to those who have paid to stay there. I wished that I could have taken Richard and Bernie to see there improvements !!
