Mikel,
I'd love to see a race in Canada, but we have no suitable track.

Mosport is a great track, but needs a lot of money to do safety upgrades, facility upgrades, and the like.

Mont Tremblant I don't think would quite cut it, it's a bit small.

Other then that, I don't think we have any road courses anywhere near good enough for WSBK. There are a couple projects in the works, but I believe they are all a couple years away.

Yeah f**k the ANC and their regime.......as has been said already they can spend billions on stadiums for the world cup, those stadiums will turn into dust after the world cup because they will never be filled again.......
some black empowerment company has made shedloads out of this farce you can bet on it......

A big thanks to those pointing out the corrupt ANC f*****g things up again. Those corrupt, greedy b*****ds have destroyed everything they've touched in the once beautiful country of SA. They have enough money for WC stadiums but not enough for WSBK. Oh well...those multi million $$ stadiums will be converted into cess pool shanty townships when the WC is over. :D

They'd be better spending the money on AIDS treatment centres than football stadiums. But then you'd need ministers who didn't believe the cause was moral and the cure beetroot or whatever the looney **** came out with.

Suspect the problem with Kyalami is more the corrupt greed b******s now running the show actually *can't* figure how to screw black empowerment dollars out of that while new football stadiums are a no brainer.

For a while I really thought SA was going to be a different Africa story. Instead its no accident they're now trying to screen Mugabe.
They're fkd.

Been puzzling why they made the payment they did and the song and dance routine about racing coming back in the future when they're busy kicking it out now?

THEN 'the penny dropped'.
Not so easy the screw much out of an existing fixture. But one that's being freshly negotiated, that's a different story innit?

My faith in ANC's take on humanity is restored.

If the Management at Eastern Creek in Sydney was more on he ball I have never understood why Sydney which is such a great city dosnt host round 2 after Phillip Island and it would be cheap for the teams too. Eastern Creek has provided some amazing racing in years past and the facility itself is fantastic. Its a great GP rated track. Food for thought?

Guys you must remember that this deal was done to make a select few people (some in government) very rich & pave the way to getting a F1 GP ... thus making the same people super rich.

They never cared about WSBK, bike racing, or bike fans ... they were using everyone for selfish reasons.

The licensing cost a few hundred million Rand, & both last years & this years race cost about R20-30mil in running costs.

Quite honestly, if there is that kind of money available, I'd rather see it invested in the local championships ... & watch decent international races on TV instead!
