Acropolis Rally

No sensible person would argue with or complain about measures to lessen the chances of accidents such as that which caused the deaths of of two competitors during the Tour of Corsica. Halting the extreme technological advancement which took competing cars right out of the realms of rallying, and to which the door should never have been opened in the first place, is such a measure.
