Locals already started protest to stop F1 Grand Prix in Nice
Jun.23 - Proposed plans to take Formula 1 to Nice, France, are hitting an early roadblock.
According to French broadcaster BMFTV, however, a large group of locals are much less happy.
An opposition group commissioned a petition five days ago and there are already over 1000 signatories who bemoan the "waste of public money" and an "ecological aberration" that would be a "brake on living standards in the city".
Representing the opposition group, David Nakache says he is "shocked" by the financial details of the proposed deal.
"Two years ago, the Metropolis voted for a subsidy of the grand prix in Le Castellet. Now, at the end of the three years, they are looking for a new destination and, as luck would have it, the city of Nice would welcome it," he said.
"In terms of the management of public funds, it is shocking."
