MGM Mirage

Did anyone else spot the news of the buyout of numerous UK Greyhound Tracks by giant US Casino operator MGM Mirage. Stock Car tracks included in the deal - prompted by impending changes in Gambling Law - include Wimbledon and Belle Vue. Its difficult to predict the impact of these changes but it is obviously important that stadia retain their raison-d'etre as sporting venues.

I can't help thinking that some action needs to be taken to help protect the interests of motorsport (and I think this covers all types whether two or four wheeled) and that this should be better co-ordinated and more systematic than hitherto. If anyone agrees with that please get in touch so we can consider ways in which this might be done. Click here to email
