I beleive the reason they sadly don't go to Japan is because of dissagreements over the single tyre rule between WSBK and the japanese championship. The single tyre rule prevented japanese wildcards from entering.

That looks like a nice flowing circuit with some ups and downs also, which is always nice.

With some work (or a lot, like you say) could turn out to be a good race track !

Why not host wsbk there ? I see no reason why not.

The track is just over 10 kilometers north east of Kazan, which is the 8th most populous city in Russia, with a population of ~1.150.000 according to wikipedia. You can check it's climate there too. It looks very favorable to host a bike race in summer.

The track is ~3.5 km long with the longest straight around 850 meters. The track layout is very reminiscent of the old Estoril and Catalunya(montmelo) circuits, which can only be good in my books. It has 6 right and 4 left corners. You can have a look for yourself from google maps or google earth:

WSBK belongs at Brands Hatch. MotorSport Vision and that greedy bean-counter Palmer ruined that, and I can't see it coming back nay time soon.
