Grow up Benyon

Motor Sport News - - Have Your Say -

In re­sponse to Jack Benyon’s col­umn ( Mo­tor­sport News Jan­uary 25) –with re­spect Jack, how old are you?

To claim that the forth­com­ing WRC rules are “...un­doubt­edly the most ex­cit­ing pe­riod in most fans’ life time...” is a very sweep­ing state­ment.

Frankly for me, and I sus­pect many more, it is noth­ing more than a fur­ther ex­ten­sion of the wrong road world ral­ly­ing is head­ing down.

To state the wish to be able to move freely, yet sen­si­bly, about a stage with a de­sire to touch a mov­ing rally car is crass in the ex­treme.

I think 99 per cent of the ral­ly­ing com­mu­nity is owed an apol­ogy. Rod Hunt Via email Jack Benyon says: While I ac­cept ev­ery rally fan who wants to move freely on a rally stage doesn’t want to touch a car, the far-reach­ing point to the col­umn is that it will only take that one per­son to at­tempt such an ac­tion to put the sport in an un­re­cov­er­able po­si­tion with the sport’s gov­ern­ing body, and, the gov­ern­ment it­self.
