It's Autumn and a doomy biblical quote seems appropriate. It's the off season for most motor sport, especially the tarmac roundy round stuff, but I did take in the so called Rallycross Grand Prix at Croft the other week and nearly wished I hadn't. I have seen some fabulous rallycross events there , none more than the Inter Nations Cup events in the late Eighties.But 2017's effort was more Petit Prix than Grand , with thin grids and few supercars. I was disppointed that 2016 Champion , Daniel Rooke, was not competing as he remains one of the best drivers I have seen - in any category of motorsport- for years . You heard it from me first - this lad is special .
