There are more tracks, in Salonica Patras and Rodos (Rhodes) island, as well, which I have not visited.
As John said, though, Greece is quite hot from mid-June to mid-September, so it just would be a nightmare... Just this evening I was at the track, from 18.00-20.00 and the temp was 36C and fell to... 32C! And it will get hotter, of course!
We could -if we could- do something in April-May, or October-November but as I said... no bikes here... sorry folks! I prefer to come meet you in your countries!
I didn't think of it this way, John, about Down-Under... Hmmm... interesting... we should do it at least once in our lifetime, eh?!
I have a fear that 2012 in Riccione will be VERY HOT! Almost Greece-like! Beware, people!!!!
No problem Stelios, just whenever you are ready to host, put a case forward to the next WC team meeting.
About Australia - I actually applied for emmigration to said country many years ago, but was politely declined due to reaching a 'certain age' (not to be disclosed). Hmmmm. Still want to visit though.
Unfotunatly Riccione may well be the only one I will miss. I won't miss the heat though!
