I wrote this earlier in response to a question in this forum.
The feedback I received was that this simplified explanation did help people get their heads around the current situation.
It may be simple - and the issues obviously aren't - but here goes...
Ok - simple terms, although apparently not this simple...
DSR have given direction to circuit managers (WASCC) that motorcycle racing is not to continue until it is SAFE to do so.
MA and MWA rightly say that you cannot achieve SAFE as a standard.
WASCC have complied with DSR directive and, until it is SAFE, will not let motorcycle racing happen.
GREY AREA... what about motorcycle training? MA position is 'the track is licensed by MA (the peak body) for full activity - racing included. WASCC between a rock and hard place ATM.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE? Where does the responsibility lay if someone gets hurt etc?
DSR? Gave directive - poorly phrased as they simply do not understand risk and motorsport. Now standing back saying 'wasn't us' etc... election coming and no one wants to address this.
Get DSR to take responsibility for their poorly phrased directive, amend it to something like - 'as safe as possible' or similar and we move on.
FUTURE? Ensure that there is a 'user group' or similar with reps from motorcycle and car worlds and ensure there is consultation regarding future works at the track. Get funding - private or government, whoever will stump up the dollars...
As an observation - personal only - this whole process would work better if there was clear and effective communication all round. Oh, and some flexibility - we cannot continue with the 'Business as usual' approach.
Why have we got past day 100? Ummmm... another good question.
