Re: Rallies Gone Wrong
In what regard are the rally organizers 'responsible' for the safety of the participants?
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.
