Don’t knock Scott

MCN - - This Week In MCN - Ian Stacey, Mid­loth­ian

I’ve got to take is­sue with the com­ments about Scott Red­ding (MCN Let­ters, July 12). Mo­toGP is still the pin­na­cle of bike rac­ing – and Scott has won GP races on a 125 and Moto2 bike. I’m not diss­ing the achieve­ments of all the Brits in World Su­per­bike and Su­pers­port, but I’m sure if you asked them if they’d like a GP vic­tory, you’d get a ‘yes’. OK, I’ll ad­mit, I’m a snobby, elit­ist Mo­toGP anorak – but if you ask the most won­der­ful Neil Hodg­son the WSB v Mo­toGP ques­tion, he would say he’d love to have won in the GP class. If Scott doesn’t want to go to WSB – good on him.
