Protest!

10 Downing Street Petition siteIs there anyone left in Britain who hasn’t set up a petition on the Downing Street home page?

Certainly a few motor sport fans have been on there and set up a few petitions that are worth a look. (Don’t worry if you’re not British, just pretend you’re an ex-patriate).

Just don’t expect any of them to top the 1.8 million signatures on the petition against road charging.

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Knight Ron Dennis, McLaren F1 team boss

339 signatures at the time of writing

Started by Rob Sinfield formerly of the Grand Prix Diary. The present controversy might diminish the chance of this happening any time soon.

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to make Banger Racing an Olympic sport

308 signatures

It’s time motor sport got a slice of the horrendous sums being poured into the Olympics – it might as well be banger racing which, in the light of this year’s Canadian Grand Prix crash-fest, could be expanded to include F1.

So popular it’s got two similar petitions – here’s the other one.

65 signatures

The signature maker reckons ITV are in violation of Ofcom’s rules.

If any F1 personality deserves a knighthood it’s Muzza – he’s commentating for the BBC again on Radio Five Live this weekend.

A worthy cause, if not a well-supported one.

Quick! Hurry on over and you can single-handedly double the support for this petition. Can you award British medals to Italians though?
