Shane Sody started this petition to South Australian Opposition Leader Peter Malinauskas

In the midst of a climate crisis with the world desperately needing to move away from fossil fuels, the South Australian Labor Party is promising to spend taxpayer millions to return petrol-guzzling relics from last century to the clean green spaces of the Adelaide Park Lands.

For decades, the demands of the four-day Adelaide 500 race have limited public access to Victoria Park / Pakapakanthi (Park 16) for five months every year.

Recently, support for the event has dwindled, and Premier Steven Marshall has finally freed the Park from its annual motor racing shackles.

Opposition Leader Peter Malinauskas has leapt in, making an opportunistic promise that if elected in 2022, a Labor Government would bring back the Adelaide 500 to the Park Lands.

Parks are for people - not racing cars. South Australia's future is with clean green energy not a dirty fossil fuel sport.

Other tourist attraction options - such as the proposed Adelaide Rainbow Circuit - would bring visitors to Adelaide year-round.

This is the wrong move in a climate crisis.

While fossil fuel racing cars persist, they would be "Better at the Bend" not in a Green, Open, Public park.

Please, Peter Malinauskas - think again. Think of SA's bright future, not its dirty, carbon-encrusted past.
