Professor Watkins for rallying?

Professor Sid Watkins was a visitor to the recent Rally Deutschland and there are rumors that the Formula 1 Medical Delegate is to take on an additional role shortly, bringing the medical facilities of the World Rally Championship up to scratch.

It is a role that he fulfilled for Formula 1 in the 1970s and 1980s which enabled the sport to have all the necessary equipment and personnel at the scene of an accident as quickly and efficiently as possible. This covers not only those at the events but also the organization at receiving hospitals which need to be prepared to receive those injured in racing accidents.
