I know this is an old thread but see how GT has stayed off the calendar.. shame as Britcar/GT has been really good this year.. Really miss GT at KH... stil hoping organisers resurrect the Mid-Engined series and bring that to KH instead.// or KH do something with Castle Coombe and expand SpecialGT//

At the GT/F3 meeting at Croft recently there was talk in the paddock that SRO, organisers of British GT and F3, had been approached by Knockhill looking for a 2008 date. There was a positive response because financially the offer was a good one. I would love to see the F3 cars up here and hope that an agreement can be reached.

Correct I supported the Scottish Superprix in the Eighties.
I have also tried to support the SMRC in the seventies, Eighties, ninties and in the new millenium. Always very difficult when you have no money yourself. As an enthusiastic amatuer it is getting harder and harder to persuade people to invest in motorsport. There are too many taking money out of it and those at the top really do not help. The Halfwits that seem to abound in F1 are the main problem and $100 million fines do not help sell our sport either.

The teams will go where the money is. They went to Bucharest this year where there was no circuit before they arrived never mind roads to get there. It was deemed a great meeting despite the poor track, multitude of accidents, and hospitalisation of numerous drivers. Money talks.
