Questions behind FIA’s decision to ditch Stage One Technology

  • A

    Another end of year drama for the WRC, very little chat about what a great event it is and more scandal regarding the integral parts that keep it running. Have the FIA forgotten earlier this year when Stage 1 Tech stepped in to provide safety tracking and timing at short notice, there was call for their return from drivers, teams and fans alike. Have they forgotten the professional and fit-for-purpose service provided by S1T over the past decade. Simon de Banke’s S1T Team are held in high accolade globally. This small but highly capable ten person team is being replaced by a 78 person team with 7 planes and 8 helicopters! – so it cannot be more cost effective. I suppose we shall all have to wait and see what SIT brings to the WRC party.
