1. Keep Formula One coverage on the BBC for ALL races from 2012 and stop F1 going to Sky Sports

Formula 1 is going to sky sports denying a lot of fans the chance to watch the races.

It was announced on 29 July 2011 that Sky Sports and BBC would team up to show the races in F1 in 2012, but that there will be free to air restrictions. Sky Sports will show every single race as well as practice sessions and qualifying sessions ad-free, while the BBC would only have limited coverage, some of which will be delayed and not live.

This petition is calling on the UK Parliament and F1 to ensure that F1 remains LIVE on free to air Television.

2. Your Help is needed to "Save The Nürburgring"

From 2007 - 2009 the German government built a huge Leisure Park at the Nürburgring. It is based on fake visitor numbers, over sized and badly executed. Most of the time it is an empty ghost town. Once promised as private investment, it is now based on a debt of 350+ million EUR public money.

Instead of pulling the plug they rented the park, including both race tracks to exactly the same privateers who were driving forces behind the Leisure Park's initial private setup.

Without Racing experience they are since experimenting with events completely unrelated to Motor-sport all under the iconic "Nürburgring" brand name.

They now want Nordschleife to pay for the huge losses. Tourist drives are at a record high, plus a 5 times increase in rent for the automotive industry for their prototype testing sessions.

What Needs To Be Done?

Separate Nordschleife from ring°park.
Let Nürburgring be Motor-sport.
Value the great heritage and tradition, rather than Roller Coasters.
Let the Ring be run by Motor-sport experts.
