His death is sad, no doubt about that.
But if i lost my life doing something i love to the best of my ability i wouldn't want it to be cancelled because of me, i would want it to continue and for the people taking part to enjoy it more than they've ever done.
I would hate to deprive anybody else of the experience that rallly would give them, i would want them to experience it to the full. I would know the risks and i would choose to take them as an adult, why should anyone else be affected by my decision?
Obviously a very personal choice with no right or wrong choice, but that would be mine.
As for not rallying near trees/cliffs etc, that is an essential part of rallying and makes the motor sport what it is. If the drivers didn't want to do it they can turn to track racing as an alternative.
Why shouldn't sane adults be allowed to take risks that involve their own lives?
