I'm sick to death of people talking about Donington Park.

1. The racing is boring as fuck, there is one line around there.

2. the facilities are atrocious.

Brands Hatch now there's a proper track.

Btw, post qualification Poncharal (Zarco 3rd) has some bad words towards Yamaha on French Eurosport, he showed his true color, ie that he is not such a gentleman but simply a politically correct butt kisser.

I guess he was thinking Johann would kick the official Yams asses during the wet/mixed conditions race...well he must feel pretty stupid now
SIC Yamaha gets a factory bike, Wilco Zeelenberg and Forcada.
Tech twat gets a bike that’s good enough for a top 10 on it’s best day and some free red bulls.

Well played, Herve!

I can't believe given the midsummer downpours in the area that the drainage issue didn't get noticed. The circuit management must have known and maybe fixed before this fuck up. 5 hrs spent waiting and waiting for an announcement, I finally gave up and walked back to my car and read the twitter feeds to keep up to date.

They should have called it by 1pm rather than leaving all those people stood out there

I waited up most of the night to watch the race on TV yawn! yawn! rain! rain! man if we got that rain here in Australia, we would be jumping with joy, the drought is affecting every one here in the country.
I notice Jack Miller was ready to go.Waving his hands about "lets go".
Good old Aussie spirit.

Stayed around right till the cancellation. It was too long a drive down there to miss any racing that there was even the slightest chance of.
Should have used my common sense (what little I have) instead and left at the initial delay. Could have been home just in time for the final announcement.

I spoke with some people who reckon they were trying their best to run the races as they are looking at a lot of refunds. I don't know the legality of event ticket supply but imo if you sell the tickets you have to supply the product.

So what were Yamaha offering Herve other than hanging around till he was replaced?.

Apparently it was done by a bunch of pikey's who have now left the scene of the crime to make a mess somewhere else...

STATEMENT FROM SILVERSTONE MANAGING DIRECTOR STUART PRINGLE REGARDING THE CANCELLATION OF TODAY’S GOPRO BRITISH MotoGP GRAND PRIX AT SILVERSTONE

“Firstly and most importantly I would like to apologise to all of the race fans for the most trying and foulest of days at Silverstone. I am truly sorry this has happened. If I had known fans would have to wait for six hours in these conditions with this outcome, I would have taken the decision to cancel the event at midday.

“We were willing to cancel the meeting much earlier but I was assured by Dorna that the teams were willing to race if conditions improved.

“I’m very conscious of the amount of money people have spent on this event. We will be contacting all customers next week to explain what we are doing about the cancellation of this event.
