Spa Francorchamps Petition

There seems to be pressure to shut down the operations of one of the most famous race tracks in the world, Spa Francorchamps of Belgium. I am into saving the nature, preserving rare species, recycling etc as anyone even though I am into old cars. I really cannot understand red-green people sometimes, like here, surely everyone new who has moved into Spa Francorchamps area must have been aware that the racetrack exists in the neighborhood and it didn't come as a surprise. If the track bothers or pollutes how about all the busy motorways that go across the same areas.

You can state your opinion pro spa by signing the petition below:

Along with Formula 1 and many other forms of motorsports the track hosts one of the best Volkswagen events in the world, the Bugshow.

Off to the our equivalent of MOT tests.

Well, saved some MOT-mans' time for rust checking :)

Opening Scene of Movie Le Mans

Opening screne of LeMans with Steve McQueen driving through French countryside in 911. Whole movie seems to be available in Youtube, too bad that the widescreen measurements are f**ked up in the clip, but pure car porn anyway :)
