Well, behind the cancellation thing on the top of the page. It's asking for sponsors, so I think that they couldn't find any major sponsors.

No idea who you are and why you say that, but I can tell you I practice at CRF every week including last week and the track is perfectly fine, actually the carpet has just been retightened 2weeks ago.

Rick, it was a pleasure to meet you and watch you race there last year with us local JoeSchmoe's - you're welcome to come back anytime! And yes the facility is still in 100% working order

Interesting, damage to the building has been the "excuse" passed around large numbers of people before this announcment Maybe it was just an excuse to cover up the sponsor situation...

They never "covered it up" either, they have been fairly open about the fact that GP pulled out.. there is no cover-up, alien underground engineering, men in black, conspiracy etc...

They'll focus on the 2008 edition instead..
