Rafael Lotilla, the energy secretary of the Philippines, is proposing a ban on all forms of motorsport in the country in an effort to save fuel and slow the increases in fuel prices. It seems from reports in the press that a law is being prepared.
This is a brilliant move and it will push racing fans into non-regulated and clandestine activities which will be more dangerous (and probably more popular) than the current arrangements.
