Nobody except for the broadcasters would lose out. If you want to boycott a race, boycott it when it comes on sky.
I was listening to Radio 5 live last night, some idiot suggested we all boycott Silverstone next year. The only loser out of that would be silverstone.
If you want to protest about something. Make sure you affect the people you want to protest against. Not the innocent bystanders.
Personally I think if we all protested to the BBC and FOTA in one large petition, instead of lots of smaller ones, that would be the best route of attack. It’s not silverstones fault.
The BBC and Bernie Ecclestone are responsible, however with a bit of pressure on FOTA as well, with enough signatures; we as fans could get things our way.
