Thousands of people have signed an online petition to save the Spa track, following a court decision to suspend the circuit's licence.

The future of the Spa-Francorchamps circuit - a favourite amongst drivers and fans alike - was put in jeopardy in September when its operating licence was suspended until 2026 by the Belgian court following a complaint by a group of local residents about noise.

But determined to save the legendary circuit, another group of local residents have started a petition to save "the most beautiful circuit in the world". Since its launch on October 19, over 28,000 had signed the petition, to show your support for this historic circuit visit www.defendonsfrancorchamps.be.
