    Was excited at first, have now been through the entire document.

    It seems that importance is given to FIA, CAMS and CIK not a mention of FIM or MA, so I don't feel motorcycle racing will be too well covered.

    The ground space appears to be too small for the size of the proposed facility.

    And a stated expenditure of $ 3.6M. It sounds pretty light.

    Would I support it, hell yes!

    They are predicting 58 bike days per annum.

    10 race and 48 track/test days.

    im a bit surprised on the lack of comment on this one from the racing community? , of course the discussions could be being done elsewhere else, sure

    reading it through, its a substantial plan and i think 5m+ investment in stage one for a business facility that will last a lifetime and increase massively in value potentially a very canny investment
    I cant help it if your perceptions don't match my reality

    8 mentions of the word motorcycle in 222 pages, doesn’t particularly seem like it will be of focus to them

    Why the fuck do track designers insist on doing right turn dominated tracks? Can't these university educated wankers come up with something slightly more interesting?

    My comment? Your track design is boring and shit. Fire ol' mate and start again.

    I count 6 left and 7 right. Is that really right turn 'dominant'? Looks pretty interesting to me to be honest.

    Collie is anti clockwise and this will be clockwise. One each way. I struggle to see a problem with it being right handed

    Conspiracy from Valentino Rossi's championship series to prevent U.S. riders from gaining a foothold in the sport.

    p.s. U.S. riders spend time on dirt tracks, which are all counterclockwise. Nicky always went O.K. at P.I.

    CHARIOT RACES?


    NOW that chariot races have been mentioned, is it not possibly due to the predominant right-handedness of our species? Overtaking with a long whip in the right hand would be less likely to cause havoc by whipping the wrong horse (or rider)!

    Just a few more days for it to sail under the proverbial radar and then we cross our fingers.
    (public comment deadline is Thursday 8th-Feb 5pm)

    Edit- has been extended by two weeks, and the new due date for submissions will be the 22 February 2018.

    Hope it isn't doomed to fail like so many others.

    I don't count little kinks as real left hand corners. They're kinda in there as an afterthought. But that's just my opinion.

    Marquez favours left hand corners
