Ral­ly­ing sup­port

Motor Sport News - - Have Your Say -

It is great to see this Face­book page with so many peo­ple shar­ing their con­cerns about the pro­posed in­creased costs of us­ing the Welsh forests.

I am a long-time re­tired com­peti­tor and I sug­gest all rally en­thu­si­asts need to take some di­rect action.

May I en­cour­age all rally com­peti­tors, mar­shals and spec­ta­tors from any­where in the UK to write to ev­ery Welsh As­sem­bly Mem­ber (there are 60 of them)? If you get your­self or­gan­ised this will prob­a­bly take two or three hours.

I would sug­gest each email is in­di­vid­u­ally ad­dressed to Ms L Wood or Mr N Hamil­ton and not to As­sem­bly Mem­ber. The con­tent of each email that a writer is send­ing can oth­er­wise be iden­ti­cal.

The email could well cover what the prob­lem is, what your sug­gested so­lu­tion is and what action you would like that As­sem­bly Mem­ber to take. Send­ing a stan­dard email that ev­ery­one read­ing this Face­book page uses would not be a good idea.

Use your own words, and fin­ish with your name and postal ad­dress so that the As­sem­bly Mem­ber can see that it is an is­sue that has a reach far out­side Wales.

A full list of email ad­dresses for the cur­rent Welsh As­sem­bly mem­bers is avail­able through the link at senedd.as­sem­bly.wales/ mg­com­mit­teemail­inglist.aspx?id=0.

If you can­not man­age to find time to send to all the As­sem­bly Mem­bers, then maybe email 10 or 20 of them. Please don’t pick the first 10 in the list as that will cause an un­even dis­tri­bu­tion of emails.

I plan to be send­ing emails to all 60 this week­end. I hope that you can find the time to join me in this task.

are a cou­ple of club rac­ing se­ries to reac­quaint your­selves with. The BRSCC Fi­esta and Fi­esta Ju­niors are shown in tan­dem (Wed­nes­day, 1720-1750hrs, Mo­tors TV), while the BRSCC MX-5 Cham­pi­onship is also on show (Thurs­day, 17201825hrs, Mo­tors TV).

Don’t worry rally fans, there’s plenty for you too. The re­cent Manx Na­tional Rally was a head-turner, with ex­cel­lent ma­chin­ery, roads and driv­ers all in action (2135-2235hrs, Mo­torstv). If you like your ral­ly­ing a bit more in­ter­na­tional, high­lights of last week­end’s Rally of Por­tu­gal are also on of­fer (Wed­nes­day, 11301230hrs, BT Sport 1).
