Make the final race of the 2013 Supercup Season a non-points race

Porsche, you have the opportunity do something rare and very special. We are asking you to elect to hold the final two rounds of the 2013 Porsche SuperCup (rounds 8 and 9 on November 2/3 at the Yas Marina Circuit) as non-points scoring rounds.

We believe that the rightful champion of the 2013 season has already been crowned, however he won't be able to attend the final race to make it a formality. Racers and fans around the world are mourning the loss of driver, Sean Edwards, who currently leads the Supercup Championship by 18 points, with 3 wins in 7 races. With a win being worth 20 points, and Sean never having finished lower than 5th, he was bound to be champion. If his nearest competitor were to win both races at the final round, Sean would only need to match his worst finish so far (5th) and the championship would still go to him. If Sean were to win the first race of the weekend, he could park his car and score no points during race 2 - and still be champion. Even his competitors can't argue: Sean Edwards has dominated Porsche Supercup this year. He deserves the title.

We want to make sure that Sean goes down in the record books as he was in the hearts and minds of his family, friends and competitors: a Champion. Please dedicate the final two races of Porsche Supercup to Sean Edwards, implore your drivers to race in his honor and put on a fantastic show for the fans. Pay them their prize money and hire the good ones to factory drives for next year. But do not award them any points. 

Please, Porsche; make Sean Edwards your 2013 SuperCup champion and celebrate in his honor at the championship party in Abu Dabhi.

Thank you,

Racing fans, Porsche fans and Sean Edwards fans everywhere

Jonas Krauss, Manager Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup
Make the final rounds of the 2013 Supercup Season non-points paying rounds.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Less than 36 hours after starting this petition, it has crossed the 3,000 signature mark. This is absolutely incredible. I started this because I wanted to give a centralized voice to the chatter that I was hearing on and offline about the support for this idea. Richard Westbrook tweeted about it and got over 600 retweets, so I thought maybe this petition could reach 1,000 signatures and have a small chance of getting noticed by Porsche. Thanks to everyone who has signed and shared this, there is more support for this than I had imagined.

      I met Sean only once, at Daytona during the 2012 Rolex 24 Hour. His team was garaged next to mine and I looked to him for advice. His passing has had a major effect on me as well as the rest of the motorsport world. Please keep sharing this, send it to your friends and let's deliver our message as loud and clear as we can to Porsche.
