    Hmmmmmm... now I know Regent St is being closed off in July to allow some F1 cars to speed down it in a demonstration run, but holding a race smack in the centre of the West End?? :eek: this is after all, the sophisticated city where scum throw stones at Marathon runners, pretty much everything else at David Blaine, and is the home of Nike wearing, anti-globilisation-capitalism-and-anything-else-that-rubs-them-up-the-wrong way protesters :rolleyes:

    I can't ever imagine them being able to close down roads though from a Friday till a late Sunday afternoon, never mind all the work required to bring the roads up to something even approaching smooth tarmac... :p

    I bet they would have trouble getting past the black cabs though - they really hog the road!

    Not going to happen. London simply cannot have a large section of the center of town closed to traffic for 3 days!

    why not? they managed to get their fee to travel within the city in place...

    maybe not that route, they should go through hyde park perhaps, a la Melbourne, and i'm not sure whether the Queen would like tyre marks on The Mall either...

    but what a sight it would be, going through Picadilly Circus? awesome
