MotoGP » Davies: UK needs world-class Circuit of Wales facility

Silverstone is a car circuit. So you put the money into improving Donington - a circuit that is already there, FIM approved, and centrally located. It's hard enough for circuits to make money nowadays - spreading the potential revenue ever more thinly makes things worse not better. Dorna are playing COW off against the other tracks so they can extract ever more from the race-going public. Your money is being siphoned off to pay for VC vultures and Canadian Teachers' pensions, not circulating & going back into racing. COW would be a white elephant and a long-term drain on the tax payer for little tangible benefit, but frankly it isn't at all likely to happen anyway. Davies is right in that the UK needs a world class bike facility but that isn't COW.

BSB » Iddon bags sensational pole, Byrne 12th

LeisuresuitLarry: Hats off to Christian, it is a significant achievement. But what I can't understand is why Bimota has been allowed to race in BSB. Aren't there homologation rules in BSB too, or are you just allowed to rock up with whatever you fancy and race?
I'm not sure. All i could find were: media 353695 mcrcb 2014 gb6 bimota bsb.pdf media 368640 mcrcb 2014 gb8 bimota.pdf .
Thanks GuzziHero. Looks like you are right - I couldn't find anything within the rules about a minimum number of manufactured bikes. Seems strange because what is to stop any manufacturer making a run of four 'specials' and simply racing them? Or Ducati chosing to race the Superleggera? Seems odd.
