As Avtech says Mr Palmer is a buisness man, when presented with the sanction fees and the true crowd figures there was no way it could continue. Remember the days of the so called 120k on race day? FGS use 3 day estimates not race day, you cant get 120k in Brands. It just so happened in those days Brands was owned by Octagon who by coincidence owned a major share of FGS (WSB.
Expect Silverstone to disappear after IMS going cap in hand to them after the farce of Donny, IMS held on when everyone else in the worl knew Donny was doomed. Crowd figures are dropping at WSB there is no way there was 51k at Donny the enitre weekend, they were lucky if there was 10k on raceday.

"how long is crash going to ignore the story regarding the kawasaki wsbk team getting busted?"

I agree that Crash should've reported it, despite being a bad reflection on the sport. It is a significant story and not to mention it at all smacks of censorship. Hopefully it will all turn out to have been a misunderstanding on the part of the mechanics due to the riders complaining they were lacking speed and were missing out on the craic which road racers enjoyed at the NW200. Not sure how to explain the gun though. Automatic gearshifter?

"The discovery is set to prompt a change of policy regarding the searching of motorsport transporters going through customs, a move that will affect all series, including Formula 1. The United Kingdom Border Authority is said to have rarely pulled over motorsport vehicles in the past."

The quote above shows why this incident should be reported here. It will have repercussions affecting racing teams across the board, both two and four wheeled, causing inconvenience and delays for everyone in future.

MM - The whole story about the drug scandal was reported by Crash.Net and debated on this forum at least three weeks ago together with a statement from the Kawasaki team.

I reported this on the previous page of comments of this thread to someone else who missed the excitement a few weeks ago.
