In this rally I believe that bikes could easily be ran after the cars being that the vintage cars/trucks are less apt to tear up the the course and it being ran mostly on such huge double laned dirt roads. I was involved with a really gnarly uncalled for pass in last years rally regarding common sense and lack of care for others lives, some of the car/truck drivers need to give bikes a break when overtaking but this has been talked about for years now.
This is the second bike racer death in 3 years I have been heavily affected by, my first was a fellow ironman racer Steve Thompson whom passed while racing at the 2010 parker 250 in a crash in a rocky section. I think they both would tell all of us to race on !
I wished I had the chance to meet you Jimmy S.
Adios and keep an eye on us
