Although the organisers of the Jim Clark Rally remain under very strict guidance from the Police about what can and cannot be said regarding the weeknd's tragic events, the fact that the Police have now released names into the public domain allows me on a personal basis to be able to comment – but only so far.
Some of you will know Iain Provan, some of you will recognise the name, but for the benefit of others, Iain was the man behind the ‘MotorsportScotland’ website. He actually used to compete on rallies occasionally back in the early to mid 80s, so he knew something about the sport. He appeared back on the scene recently having established his website. His partner Betty was with him at the weekend and she also contributed to the website.
That’s all that can be said at the moment.
