British GP goes to Donnington

July 4th, 2008 § 0 comments


The race’s traditional home is owned by the British Racing Drivers’ Club, who had been in talks for a new deal with Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone.

“We wanted a world class venue for F1 in Britain, something that the teams and fans could be proud of,” he said.

“Donington’s development plans will give us exactly that, a venue to put British motorsport back on the map.”

Ecclestone said he was disappointed that the government had not intervened to help Silverstone retain the race.

Silverstone and Donnington are both privately venues. Why should the government help one or the other? If Silverstone isn’t upto it, and franlkly it’s a shite track then it shouldn’t get the deal.
I just hope the development of Donningtons’ track doesn’t fuck it up for the bike racing.
