One of the most widely experienced organisers and consultants in international rallysport died this week.  

Malcolm Neill was best known for his 14 years directing the world championship Rally GB.  He was also well respect for his efforts in the early ‘70s in his native Ulster when he masterminded the Circuit of Ireland through the troublesome and divisive years of political turmoil.   

He was also an active co-driver on occasion, winning 1976 Donegal International, the Republic of Ireland’s most popular rally.   

Further afield, he was engaged as consultant to the new world championship Rally Mexico, injecting many positive ideas which helped create an event of major significance in that country, working also in Turkey, Jordan and Qatar, and also organised the Chatsworth Rally Show in Britain.   

He came from a motorsport family.  His father was not only a leading racing driver in Ireland, but the proprietor of the Neill flour milling company.
