I don't think that petitions to commercial companies like the speed network will work that well. The problem that you're going to run into is that their marketing people are telling them that Nascar sells and makes money, and I don't think that they are lieing. Nascar Racing fills up arenas every weekend. I don't think that the same sorts of numbers are drawn towards WRC, and thus, not much airtime is devoted to it. I wish I had a TIVO so I could just record all of the WRC stuff and watch whenever I wanted, but I don't, so I miss it.

Don't get me wrong, I signed it. Don't hold your breath if you really think that the speed network will change is programming because of some internet petition.
2004 ZX5 5spd; pretty stock, and slowly rusting
