Give your support to Spa

NEWS STORY
26/10/2009

Most of the time we tend to give online petitions a wide berth, however, in this case Pitpass is only too happy to give its full support.

Readers will be aware that last month we reported that the future of racing at the legendary Spa-Francorchamps Circuit is in jeopardy following the decision by the local Council of State to suspend its licence until 2026. The move is the result of an investigation into noise following the issuing of a new permit in April 2007.

Essentially, a number of locals - or NIMBYs - don't want racing to continue at the circuit

However, with the future of racing at this legendary track now in doubt, another group of locals has started an online petition.

Their message is clear:

"We want to be sure that the Spa-Francorchamps racing-track can continue to work for the economical future of our country!" they say.

"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!"

  • If like us, you are conscious of the historical and touristic heritage of our country,
