And, after a bit of kerfuffle, it's back to Silverstone for the British MotoGP on August 30th! With the Circuit of Wales project delayed by red tape, and the contract dead between CofW (promoters for at least 5 years) and Donington Park, it gave the new management team at Silverstone a golden opportunity to regain the initiative. And they have. For two years! Perhaps now we can all look forward to a bit of stability and a cracking British GP, and a state of the art new track in South Wales for 2017?!
British MotoGP promoters, Circuit of Wales, recently held a press conference at the Piccadilly Sports Bar in Rupert Street, London, underlining their aspirations for young riders in Britain in the future. They also reiterated their position regarding the public enquiry held in March, and were confident work would start on the track in South Wales later this year. Hosted by KH, on stage were Chris Herring of CofW and guests of honour, Sam Lowes, 24, current SpeedUp Moto2 rider, Rory Skinner, 13, Red Bull Rookie contender and Riders for Health CEO, Andrea Coleman.
I hope you're enjoying the year so far, if you see me at any of the tracks, please don't be shy!
All the best
See you soon
