    Does anyone know if WSB at Donington is using the Melbourne loop?

    But I am curious though, as to which genius thought that England at the
    end of March, would be a good idea for a world series race.

    Sure, we might get glorious sunshine and temps of upto a whopping 15C, but
    I wouldn't even plan a BBQ in March, let alone an event like this.

    Indeed. We often do have a glorious early spring. But then we've also
    had meetings snowed off at Brands Hatch at the same time of year.
    Whatever, it's still going to be a bit cold for camping no matter what.

    As for the Melbourne Loop, the circuit has regained it's FIM certificate
    and I thought it wasn't long enough without the loop. I believe they've
    moved the Esses further back up the straight and made it faster and less
    of a dead stop kink. The big question is whether they knocked down the
    building that stops you seeing[1] up the straight from the Melbourne
    banking. Hasn't the Dunlop bridge gone as well?

    [1]Not just at Donington, but most other circuits as well, the owners
    should really walk round the whole circuit on race day and look at sight
    lines. There's way too many places where you can't see enough of the
    circuit because of the shape of the banking, trees, buildings or brick

    I'd like to see WSBK come to Grattan Raceway in Michigan! What could
    be better than the Isle of Mann on a winding road course through a
    tree-filled swamp? I submit it's "NOTHING"!!!
