    It's a shame to see a circuit closing but it's a huge complex and must have huge running costs. It never seemed to have much going on in the way of racing, none of the clubs went there and none of the big meetings like BSB and BTCC ever went there. So maybe it was inevitable. Have to say the couple of times I rode it the circuit never endeared itself to me, too short, just a series of clinical straights and hairpins.

    I enjoyed seeing BSB there and surpised it only went there once as amazing viewing from the grandstands. And I enjoyed riding. Knee down into the chicane after start/finish then heading at the armco nudging 150 Great fun

    You sure? BTCC has been going there for years. This year they were there over the 11th/12th

    I've only been there once, to a British Championship Supermoto race, which took place in the car park, and wasn't impressive.

    I went to the opening with a mate who worked for the comic, gilera gave us a dna50 and we used it to taunt Steve berry two up all around the paddock.

    I met Mrs Foggy and rode one of her ccms too.

    That's quite near to me. I'd have come and cracked on but I've got the kids that weekend.

    I did a track day there once. I found it was a very short track, but still enjoyed it.

    I stand corrected. But one big meeting a year still ain't gonna cover the running costs.

    Very true.

    Didn't mean to criticise.
