Petition to Save Spa Francorchamps

"Since the last publication of the Belgian State Council, too many people think that all the persons living in Francorchamps and all around are disturbed by the noise and are against the circuit , this is not right.
We are not deaf with criticisms when those are founded and justified.
Our association respects all democratic initiatives, including, those defended by minorities. It’s usual that : « We follow the majority » We really feel more and more attacked by the bad publicity, the false or directed figures, that certain badly disposed people spread everywhere.
'The most beautiful circuit of the World' is a real economic tool, which gives work to a significant amount of people and makes a lot of publicity and a dynamic and qualitative image of Belgium all around the world.
We are for the continuity of the circuit, and that passes by an optimal exploitation and we will fight to preserve it, we are sorry for the people who don’t agree to be integrated into the local life! "

"Dear Andre, Please would you be sure to register my petition. I never got a reply from Antoine ...... Best I have raced at Spa since 1968 until this day. I finished 5th on the old circuit Belgium Grand Prix in 1968 and won the Spa 1,000 kms for Porsche in 1971 with Pedro Rodriguez. My Arrows Formula One team contested every Belgium Grand Prix on the circuit until 2004. I still race there with my classic cars finish second in the U2TC saloon car race this September. It is a great track and due to a minority complaining should not be diminished for both its heritage and commercial benefits it brings to the region. I have and will continue to spend my Euros Because of it there. Please be sure to register my petition attached. Thank you.Yours truly "

The Policeman sees
the motor race as a necessary evil
if he is an idealist.
