with the rally over and more time on my hands than I was expecting (In Tunis waiting for British embassy to open lost passport on rally) I have thought about Wesley and the outcome. Wes came to Tunisia to win, he rode fast, I met Wes only at the last two Tuaregs but I don't think he would be the guy to take advice from his closest friends who attended the rally or our team Torque Racing, We all assume we will get away with it until we dont then we pause look for a reason to justify why it happened' convince ourselves the circumstances are not applicable to ourselves then carry on. I don't think this is wrong just how we are programmed, On the few occasions I met Wes I found him generous with his time, his spares and advice but most of all encouraging to me. Wes loved the Tuareg and will be missed.
