Jersey University Student Survey
« on: February 15, 2011, 03:01:15 AM »
Hello All

I need my fellow islanders help for my major 2nd year university piece I am currently undertaking.
I am studying Motorsport Management in Swansea.

I am looking at starting a new theoretical Special Stage rally/Jersey Rally Championship as well as improving the communication between all parties/ the public’s perception and opinion and growing the sport. I wanted to gauge the general public’s opinion on the sport, whether you are interested and what would it need to do to adapt raise support for motorsport

Please can you complete the survey to help me with gaining information.

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/6D66DCB

Please pass this on to other Channel Islanders. The more replies the better.

Thank you very much

Ben Buesnel

I'm so green that I've started running the Lamborghini on chip fat!

I'll take a look at your survey Ben. I love the Jersey Rally but, having said that, I don't live on the route. I think the good old Jersey public is already tolerant enough of ye olde petrolhead, and asking for more road closures might over-egg it. Just my 2 cents.

Many Thanks ole razzy

Pomme de terre and man in the street, thank you for your replies and feedback.

It is an interesting debate. Why is Jersey's attitude and culture different from other places that hold closest road motorsport. E.G the Isle Of Man or Ireland.

The Isle Of Man has the TT as its figure head event but also has other well known events such as the Manx International Rally (Part of the main British Championship and Irish Tarmac Championship) and Manx National Rally (Part of the British Tarmac Championship) as well as other local events such as rallies, hillclimbs, sprints etc. 

Why is it that Jersey has a perceived negative view as regards to motorsport? Where as the Irish and Manx residents embrace it?

Interesting topic I feel.........

One interesting aspect could be the size of the population compared to the other regions you mentioned. 

Jersey has been slowing down since the tourist trade moved away.  I don't think it would have been feasible to shut down roads when the tourist industry was at its height - bad enough when the Battle of Flowers or the Air Shows are held, even now it is a bit of a humbug that we put up with.

Sorry I am one of the 'stick-in-the-muds' who prefer a quiet life.

Good luck with your survey though and with your Motorsport Management course. :)

The Isle of Man got into motor races early by dint of a legal quirk.  It was at the time the only place where someone (the AG I think) had authority to close the roads. So it was the only place in the British Isles that could host racing.   Jersey did have a significant annual motor racing event using a curcuit from the Grand Hotel out to Bel Royal and back before the war.
Racing cars is unnecessary, dangerous, noisy, polluting and inconvenient.

I was disappointed that Jersey didn,t re-introduce the old Grand to Bel Royal race circuit for Classic racing cars.

"Safety Elf", stopped it in its tracks apparently.

The questions and answers are very bias towards the pro rally side. Not exactly a balanced survey. No where could I put the alternative of a Pink Floyd concert and an International yacht race or tall ships leg.
