NICE BLACKMACHINE YO
Fuck you, Bernie Ecclestone.
Well, kinda, the track is there, but you're not allowed on it anymore. Well, you weren't the last 2 years. It's held in the surrounding land mainly.Isn't it the place where the Download Festival is held ?
Not when I went it wasn't, it was held in the land in the middle of the track. Then again that was 2005.Well, kinda, the track is there, but you're not allowed on it anymore. Well, you weren't the last 2 years. It's held in the surrounding land mainly.
I think most people know Silverstone over Donington, given it's been the face of British racing internationally since Brooklands near enough, but this is such a crying shame. I felt really, really sad watching that, because I just remember the amount of times I've been there and seen fantastic racing (WSBK, BSB, World Series by Renault etc), and now it gets reduced to this sorry state.
I literally want to break the shins of everyone involved in doing this.

It's really unfortunate how this all turned out. :noway:what is so, so sad is that a great track has been despoiled badly. There's been a lot of damage done to it and it's going to take a lot of money to repair that damage. It's also going to take a lot of money to do the ongoing maintenance, repairs and renewals that the circuit should have had; anyone who has been there recently will know that the access roads are potholed. It's in a very shabby state, and all that is very sad indeed.
"I hope [Donington still has a future as a racing circuit], but I'm not sure, because it's going to need a lot of money to sort it out. That's doable, but it's difficult to see where the upside commercially is really going to come from now. They've obviously not got the Formula 1 - not that I think that's a big problem - but they haven't got MotoGP anymore, they've not got World Superbikes either and as the promoters of British Superbikes we've had to pull the round there, because clearly we can't have whole teams and TV and ticket sales when the event may well not happen.
