Cost is too high

Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene -

I read with in­ter­est Jack Benyon’s col­umn re­gard­ing the num­ber of spec­ta­tors on the Manx.

As a cur­rent mar­shal, spec­ta­tor and com­peti­tor – in­clud­ing hav­ing per­formed all th­ese roles on the is­land – there is a rea­son why don’t I at­tend one of the best event in the Bri­tish Isles.

Sim­ple: it is the cost in time and money.

The ferry is ex­pen­sive, too much time off work re­quired. Due to th­ese rea­sons I do not in­tend to stand in a box five-peo­ple deep and the en­joy­ment of mar­shalling is out­weighed by th­ese fac­tors.

Also, if the Rally Isle of Man or­gan­is­ers were short of mar­shals I never saw it pub­lished any­where. Mike Steele Via email
