    Interesting line in that link. Insufficient return against the purchase price.

    They'd have done due diligence on the purchase, and they would have known that what they were buying would not support the purchase price if business continued. No, they bought the site for development.

    Future development was an obvious fall back plan - Its adjoining massive distribution centres and industrial estates. However, when it was built the whole motorsport industry looked different, Indycars, Massive interest in BTCC - huge crowds etc. I reckon they would have projected it lasting longer than it did.

    I heard somewhere that the track was a bit short or summat daft. So couldn't attract the big Yankee races over here.

    Did you realise that one of the reasons that it's not been financially successful is that some of the stands are unusable due to subsidence?
