IR,—I was greatly interested in your article this month ” Passengers must be barred.” Surely this is a question that should be
decided by the mechanics themselves, as it is their lives at stake.
There have been, we know, a number of deaths, and injuries during the last month, which gives rise to alarm, and an opportunity for both the onlooker and the Press to ” gossip” and criticize modern motor racing. The Continental method of having flag-marshals certainly seems successful and its adoption is well repaid by the lack
of passenger deaths. Indeed, from the driver’s point of view, he has no worry otanother man’s life in his care, which might or might not, steady him down.
Why flag-marshals are not stationed on English tracks, and at T.T.’s (more than there are), is a mystery. Nevertheless, a mechanic should be permitted to enter a cockpit at his own special wish. I am, Yours etc.,
