Save our circuits
Whichever way it's looked at, this week past has not been a good one for grand prix circuit owners in Europe, for no less than three established races, nay classics, are under threat and could well disappear from the calendar within two years.
The three events, in alphabetical sequence, are the Belgian round, Britain's summer jamboree and the German/European Grand Prix. And, somewhat perversely, news of their respective crises arrived in reverse order, starting on Friday evening.
That was when autosport.com first learned that 'the sporting power in Germany' was on the agenda of the World Motor Sport Council meeting to be held in Paris on October 7.
