Save the Brighton Speed Trials

We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to accept the application by the Brighton and Hove Motor Club to run the 2014 Brighton Speed Trials on Madeira Drive.

The Speed Trials is part of Brighton’s heritage having run in the area since 1905. Thousands of people come down to the seafront for an entertaining fun-packed day out for the whole family to watch race cars and motor bikes compete along Madeira Drive.

The event has grown over the years and now even enjoys international acclaim. It has the full support and backing of the Motorsport Association and adheres to their strict rules of safety.

The end of the Speed Trials will be the end of an era for Brighton. It will have a major negative financial impact on tourism and trade in the area and mean the loss of one of the highlights on Brighton’s seafront entertainment calendar.
Please sign the petition and help keep the Speed Trials going.

A decision will be made by the council’s Economic Development and Culture Committee at a meeting on 23 January 2014.

This ePetition ran from 19/12/2013 to 23/01/2014 and has now finished.

12430 people signed this ePetition.
