@ Painless.....
I understand your comment and I am the last person to stand in the way of new tracks being developed worldwide but if you take a global view of the way things work in WSBK (and MotoGP for that matter) you have to ask yourself about the reasoning behind the decisions to develop circuits in some locations and abandon others. It generally comes down to money. The owners of any racing 'circus' have a duty to make money for the investors/shareholders but sometimes that does not coincide with the wishes of the fans or produce good racing circuits...witness some of the new 'soul-less' circuits that have appeared. Irrespective, I wish the Russians well.................
@ John....yes I agree, WSBK does belong at Brands Hatch but I have a sneaky feeling that you should not be putting all the blame on MSV. Very few of us know all the details regarding why an agreement was not reached and whilst for sure, it came down to money, don't forget, it takes two to tango. MSV is a busine

Continued..........MSV is a business that has to turn a profit but they ARE investing in UK racing. Their circuits are streets better since taking them into ownership and look what has happened at Snetterton. I would go so far as to say it was a shame that they couldn't have acquired Donnington as well!

Crash ran that story three weeks ago including a statement from the team - just click more news at the bottom of the page.
