Nah, let's take a leaf out of Spa's book and create a "street circuit" using countryside roads.... Image a course that included the Snake Pass!!!Just_a_fan wrote: ↑Sun May 27, 2018 5:25 pmSilverstone was shafted by Bernie who, even though he's a member, seems to hate the BRDC (who used to own Silverstone). He did everything he could to mess them around and charge big money for the race. The roads around Silverstone were improved to help facilitate fans getting to and from the race too.tinvek wrote: ↑Sun May 27, 2018 4:11 pmthe question is
are we talking about loosing the british GP or losing silverstone ?
up till 1987 silverstone didn't have a monopoly on hosting the race and personally i've no great love for the place since for me it threw away it's identity the moment they started building the slow sections for 1987, so why not another track? although the donington plan failed, that was more about how they had planned to finance the track changes and being caught up in the financial crash, if a race around london's docklands could be financed, there''s no reason why the race shouldn't move there if silverstone are so adamant they can't afford it, it would certainly be better than no british gp at all
Silverstone is a good F1 track with proper high speed "balls out" corners that are missing at most modern "medium speed" tracks.
As for Docklands - no. We don't need yet another sporting event in London at the expense of the rest of the country. We also don't need another contrived street circuit in F1. If you had to have a street circuit in the UK, use Birmingham for its central location. Better yet, use Oxford. They hate cars in Oxford so it would be funny to watch them all implode with indignation. Actually, I could see a street course working in Oxford. There a couple of bits that are long enough and wide enough to even allow some overtaking.
