Welsh racer Chaz Davies has given his backing to the new Circuit of Wales venue, which is due to replace Silverstone for the British MotoGP event.
The venue is not expected to host the event until 2016 as it is still being constructed in Ebbw Vale, which has raised questions over whether the right decision was made.
"It's gone a very long way already and I'm obviously fully behind it," Davies told Crash.net. "It's only half an hour down the road from my house and it would be a true home race for me.
"I think that some people have questioned the need for it because we have Silverstone and Donington Park but there's no true world-class bike facility in the UK."
Donington Park will host the British MotoGP event until the Welsh base is completed.
