Francorchamps gets new operating license

Published

on


The Belgian media reports that the Circuit of Spa-Francorchamps has received a new operating license on Monday. The new license, which is valid until March 2011, was signed by Philippe Henry, the planning minister of the Walloon government.

The historic Francorchamps track had its original license revoked by an administrative court and this following the complaints of local residents about noise.

Despite the angry neighbours, the circuit in the Belgian Ardennes also provides a lot of families in the area with an income. Thus another group of residents decided to start an online petition to save the famous track. On the website http://www.defendonsfrancorchamps.be they collected over 35.000 signatures.
