I seem to recall that part of the design brief was to try and recreate the profile and character of eastway? Not sure that's possible with modern circuit - but either way I'm excited to have another closed crit circuit riding distance away.
We may take it for granted, but we really are spoilt for purpose built facilities in London
Really interested to see if there will be a weekly racing series and whether it clashes with Palace or Hog Hill/Cyclopark. Hopefully they do a Wednesday or Monday night series and keep to the proper formula of E/1/2 & 3/4s and womens racing. Particularly now that Hog Hill will only Race 2/3 and 4s only (good for 4s) and Cyclopark murmurs are it will be handicapped through the summer series too.
