I think he would have gotten a few more stage wins, and probably avoided some of the heartbreak and hassle that they had to deal with on the rule/organizational end of things.

But, he would have been following orders, and would never have had the chance to ride for his own (overall) win.

I also don't think this place would have become quite what it is today without Jonah and RallyPanAm crusading to put a privateer on the podium. It was a David and Goliath story that really captured people's imagination and passion here.


Thanks, Guys.
