My point is that they should be just as "responsible" for safety of their participants as race organizers are. NOT having a standard of safety such as ISAF, which the organizer makes a reasonable attempt to ensure across the fleet, is, in my opinion, a very bad move...for everyone.
Your point is valid, of course. Just like in racing - it always comes down to the skipper. But how on earth can one argue against standard safety regulations
in sponsored rallies when those rallies increase potential risk, just as a a race increases potential risk? It makes no sense.
