Rally Rivalry gone too Far

Manx rally driver David Higgins is appealing for all British Rally teams to put their current problems behind them and get on with their sport.

David is the manager of Team TQ.com and withdrew the concern from the team championship after his brother Mark's Atlas TEG Sport team were penalised 15 points.

The penalty was imposed when their new driver Phillip Morrow drove the last round in Ulster with an unregistered co-driver.

Prior to the event, Morrow had been sacked by Mitsubishi, where he had been team-mates with Guy Wilks - the arch rival of Mark Higgins.

David Higgins says organisers have failed to punish Mitsubishi over the season, and fully admits he withdrew Team TQ.com to support his brother.

However, he is now coming under pressure from his own sponsors and believes the sometimes bitter rivalry between Mark Higgins and Guy Wilks has gone too far:-
