For the information of Peter Biggs (Letters, Motor Sport, November 1988), the new Jimmy Brown Centre at Silverstone is hardly a sop to the Press. True, there is a nice, clean lavatory to which Joe Public has no access, but there its usefulness ends. One can see absolutely none of the action from this expensive new facility, which thus gives the Press the same deal as the paying spectators, stranded behind rows of chicken-wire. The moral of the tale is simple; if you want to watch motor racing, either professionally or as an enthusiast, visit Oulton Park, Brands Hatch, Mallory, Lydden or any other places where you can see a little of what is going on without being totally alienated.
