People live near there? Isn't the main complaint about Spa that it's in the middle of nowhere? We need to investigate the signatures on this complaint, I believe half of them to be deceased or cattle. Someone should really make up a petition to get it back, I'm sure there's many many more people that want a race there than don't.

Time to include silencers in the exhaust of F1 cars... Aren't they "green" at FIA? Well, what about the incredible noise of those cars? I bet Mosley would be delighted to launch the SERS (Sound Energy Recovery System).
Another possible solution could be to use baffles around the track or earth berms. It's pretty straightforward to design them to reach the noise levels that legislation demands.
Melbourne sound tube. Let's dream a little: I always wanted to design a track with seats OVER the track, on top of a transparent roof... Imagine that: the seats couldn't be closer to the action, even with large safety run-off areas. That's what I would call a XXIth century circuit. I would actually pay money if they allowed me to design something like that over Eau Rouge, nonwithstanding purists complains. It's ugly... like the Eiffel Tower
With all due respect I wouldn't blame politicians, I guess that this is a legal ruling. Noise levels are enforced everywhere.
Last idea: pay some vacation package to all neighboors during race weekend.
Seventeen years... time enough for Max Mosley to quit.
