At the time of writing, nearly 30,000 people had signed an online petition vowing to defend the popular Belgian GP venue Spa-Francorchamps.

A local court recently revoked the historic track's operating license until 2026, following the complaints of local residents about noise.

The petition, which can be found at, is run by "people who live near the track".

"We want to confirm that we are not disturbed by the permanent work of the circuit," they said.
