It's good to see Gow considering a replacement circuit for 2020. Just a shame Pembrey doesn't look like happening, as that produced two great races when it was on the calendar in 92 and 93

I'd personally prefer to see Snetterton 200 layout used rather than an additional visit to Thruxton.
Without the infield section it would be a pretty fast circuit although not up to Thruxton speeds.

I agree. The extended length does little to improve the racing other than break the cars up a bit. A run on the 200 layout could be quite good and we'd probably get 2 or 3 more laps out of a race. Just a huge shame that the flow of turn 2 has been changed as a mistake there often lead to a great battle down the straight and into the esses.

That doesn't necessarily mean anything. Circuit of Wakes signed a multi-year deal with MotoGP!

Not saying that it won't happen, but lets wait until it's actually built first.

Didn't know that. Also I don't know much about Lake Torrent, I assumed that everyrhing is done and dusted there.

it’s obvious now why Gow didn’t include it in the calendar;

Thanks for sharing. Very interesting, hope they can proceed with the project but a good idea to skip it for now.

Yeah, now it's clear. I just lacked such information. Hopefully Lake Torrent won't be a repeat of CoW plans. I'd love to see a new circuit in the UK, appearing in the BTCC calendar. They need new circuits. Maybe in 2020 the track will be ready to show up in the BTCC.

Looks like Lake Torrent is a whole different kettle of fish to CoW in that they've actually broken ground, so they're about a thousand years ahead.

It looks like it'll be a good track, if the developers manage to crack the problems they've got.
