I found that point about the dangers of motorsport very interesting.
It seems that Striling came through a period of acceptable danger in motorpsort. By the time Jackie was racing it was less acceptable.
I can understand both sides of the arguement, but I favour Jackie’s view.
Would we really accept the dangers now? Just look back at this years Indy 500 to see how Mike Conway survived the horrific crash near the end of the race.
Also, with the footage of the Mille Miglia, you can see the dangers clearly to the crowd. This, Stirling said, always made him uncomfortable; driving towards the spectators. It was a crash involving spectator deaths that brought an end to this race.
