Today, amusement comprises a major portion of everybody’s life. One of the burning issues today is dearth of natural resources. One such resource is petroleum. People are looking for alternative resources but they tend to forget that they can still save petrol. There is one solution for this but the implementation of this salvation process depends on the cooperation of the people. The solution is to stop or at least reduce the racing conducted solely for entertainment purpose. Western countries spend tonnes of petrol every day for racing because of the craze that they have for that sport. Race fuel consumption rate is normally around 75 liters per 100 kilometers (absolutely ridiculous isn’t it!!). In earlier days, any sport that involved only people and no machines were endorsed.

But today, due to precipitous enhancement in technology, many aristocratic, sophisticated sports have been introduced. Leaving sports aside, people have started savoring such sports solely for entertainment purpose. Instead of bike or car racing, cycle racing can be promoted. This indirectly avoids pollution and promotes good health. Once an initial step is taken, people will soon understand the importance of such an action and will extend their patronage with amazing celerity. Generically speaking, any sport activity that leads to the wastage of petrol must be prohibited. Though this is not practically facile, efforts can be taken to slowly control the quantity of petrol used for that purpose. If this is done there will be something left for the future generations to savor.
