Benefits from the Circuit of Wales; Views of Wales.
SIR - Reading through the Motorcycle Press this week I noted that Dorna, the owners of Moto GP have pledged their support to the new Circuit of Wales for 10 years and have undertaken to move the event there when the track is constructed.
Now, will there be an apology from the makers of the disgraceful TV programme which slammed the scheme as unrealistic, and which carried claims that no guarantees for major events had been given, and thus seriously damaged the prospects? This scheme, if it goes ahead, will generate hope in an area which badly needs it. It will bring new engineering businesses, new jobs, new technologies and these will be long-term and permanent. They will generate exports in a way which Wales has not seen since coal, steel or slate.
Sadly, it appears as though Wales is populated by people who live to moan, sit on the fence and play the "little dog". Is it not time to stand up and think positive, to have confidence and to haul ourselves into the 21st century? John Dimbylow Clos Pwll Llestri Hay On Wye
