Mick Jones

Motor Sport News - - Have Your Say -

It was with great sad­ness that I read Motorsport News’s report that our Mick Jones had passed away (Au­gust 10).

It was a re­minder that we are wit­ness­ing the grad­ual demise of a gen­er­a­tion that were at the birth of a ral­ly­ing era that will sadly never be re­peated, one that cre­ated great cars from mul­ti­ple man­u­fac­tur­ers, and he­roes, many of which were Brits.

Ral­ly­ing was a na­tional pas­time, the best from abroad mi­grated to the Bri­tish Isles for the ral­lies and the cham­pi­onships. The coun­try re­sponded in their hun­dreds of thou­sands to face the long treks into the forests, young and old, and the me­dia couldn’t get enough of them and the RAC Rally.

From the gen­er­a­tion that lived through those great times, to watch those great Fords. RIP Mick, you’re a legend, and tell Roger Clark and Peter Ashcroft we’re ask­ing af­ter them too. Jeff Ledger Via email
