    Default Wales GP

    BBC News - Silverstone boss contacts Cameron over Circuit of Wales

    Anyone who knows the area will know its a bit windswept up there. Seems to have its own micro-climate. i.e. pisses down and is freezing cold.

    Not the best place in the world in the winter.

    It's probably warmer than the existing track at Angelsey. Quite why anybody think Wales needs another racetrack is a mystery; if they were going to poor public money into anywhere, they should help out Angelsey.
    Will work inside IR35. Or for food.

    They've loaned £10 million for refurbishment and allegedly passenger numbers are up 10% since they took over, as reported by the BBC

    Bit of a trek Anglesey. MUCH quicker to get to Silverstone from, say, Cardiff than north wales.

    Drive from South to North Wales is not great due to road quality. Looking at probably 4.5 hours to Anglesey?
