Valkenswaard MXGP circuit under threat?
Mxmag.be have discovered a ruling by the courts in Eindhoven that could have disastrous consequences for the traditional Valkenswaard MXGP after protests from local residents.
You can see the article, translated to English, below:
Major public events, such as the annual Dakar Pre-prologue, can probably no longer be held on the Eurocircuit in Valkenswaard in their current form and size. This is the result of a ruling by the highest administrative judge in an article by Eindhovens Dagblad.
The highest administrative judge of our country ruled Wednesday that the Pre-prologue, as held in recent years, does not fit within the existing rules for the terrain. The municipality must now review what is and what is not allowed. In any event, events such as the Dakar Pre-prologue do not seem to be able to be adjusted or significantly increased in size. The verdict is a huge support for a number of local residents and interest groups Groen en Heem, who have been conducting a legal battle against the municipality of Valkenswaard for years.
