Tomorrow the world ... yes the world !!

Here we go:

"I believe we have reached the maturity as a sport and business to make this very important step," Cochrane said yesterday.

"We are at a point in time where it is important for us to build our international presence further and reinforce the significance of our great category within world motorsport."

The announcement coincides with the addition of a third international event at Abu Dhabi's Yas Marina circuit to join the Bahrain International circuit and the Hamilton 400 in New Zealand on the race calendar.

oh my god

The only chance he has of making the sport bigger is to give it the wider American and English audiences, going middle easet / asia isn't going to do it

Knockhill. The most glamourous circuit in the whole of Fife...

V8's would be awsome at Knockhill though

Road America. Or if you want short course, Lime Rock Park Classic would be brilliant.

Ah - the article is about increasing international TV exposure through IMG TV - nothing about any plans for more offshore races (other than Abu Dhabi which we already know about).

Turn the Devo series into the ATCC, and have the V8SC Series as the international example of what we (Aussies) can do.

I for one would love to see our stuff on some Euro circuits with some real racing room!

Road Atlanta (cause i can be there)

Or Laguna Seca. Will be a good match for Bathurst since they are 2/5 best circuits on earth.

Tony Cochrane said a few years back that the series natural borders was the Indian-Pacific region...what would have changed?
