Re: British GP to move to Donnington
Wherever the GP ends up, this move can only be good for the sport. Silverstone is a dreadful spectator experience; I spent an enjoyable three hours getting out of the car park yesterday, made only bearable by the fact that it is one of the best tracks on the calendar.
Bernie is a business man first and foremost and he knows removing the British GP from the championship would be like committing commercial suicide. So, it ain't gonna happen. He is initiating a threat that's been hovering over the heads of the BRDC for years; pull your fingers out or lose the GP. No one can say they weren't given fair warning, but they were conceited enough to think that he wouldn't carry out the threat as there wasn't another circuit up to the required standard. Donnington might have a huge task to get it to that standard, but Simon Gillett inspires me much more than the trustees at Silverstone.
