RallySport Magazine’s recent poll on tarmac rallying has shown that a staggering 76.4% of readers believe that reconnaissance should be compulsory for tarmac rallies.

The tragic death of motor racing great, Peter Brock, at last month’s Targa West has brought the topic to a head. It was revealed after Brock’s accident that he had not done a recce for the rally, having only arrived in Western Australia the day before the event.

Brock was using notes supplied by another competitor, but had not checked them for accuracy, and as a result, was virtually driving ‘blind’.

RallySport Magazine’s webpoll asked “Should reconnaissance be compulsory for tarmac rallies”, to which 76.4% of voters said yes, 21.1% said no, and 2.4% remained undecided.

Brock’s accident saw many opponents to tarmac rallies calling for the banning of them, but motorsport legend, Jim Richards, dismissed such claims. Richards has won Targa Tasmania many times, and is a strong advocate for the events.

The results of RallySport Magazine’s poll should now be looked long and hard at by CAMS, as the inquiry into Brock’s death continues
