The MSA’S fault

Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene -

It should be ob­vi­ous where rally spec­ta­tors have gone ( Mo­tor­sport News, Sept 28).

Ninety per cent of the cause of spec­ta­tor loss can be ex­pressed us­ing the three let­ters: the MSA (Mo­tor Sports As­so­ci­a­tion).

The never end­ing dic­tates em­a­nat­ing from this dic­ta­to­rial en­tity are killing grass roots mo­tor sport.

All lev­els events seem to suf­fer from a plague of MSA of­fi­cials, just look for your­self if you ever bother to at­tend an­other event. This plague and the dic­tates all in the name of ‘elf and safety’ ( most of which are un­nec­es­sary at club level ) will force a con­tin­u­ing de­cline in en­tries and spec­ta­tors.

Does your colum­nist Jack Benyon en­joy be­ing con­strained in a pen in a lousy view­ing lo­ca­tion?

Spec­ta­tors and, by as­so­ci­a­tion, spon­sors are to­tally fed up by be­ing treated as at best a nui­sance by of­fi­cials and, I am sorry to say, some or­gan­is­ers.
