Interview with Jack Millers parents - discusses DORNA Support

This was found elsewhere and is scans so apologies for the clarity but it is a scanned copy of an interview given by Jack Miller's parents regarding Jack, how they have gotten this far and the sacrifices

Of interest for me as a critic of DORNA was that it was DORNA who fronted 50k to help Jack stay in the champiionship so full credit where due.

Oh I think I've heard this story before.

But where oh where did I hear it?

Oh that's right.

Drop in the bucket to have a country watch the sport you promote. Not saying Miller doesn't belong, but sometimes a passport outweighs skill in this sport.

Absolutely agree ............. small change to invest given the likely financial reward and return but for me, a strident critic of DORNA whenever possible, I acknowledge and thank that they invested to keep Miller (in this case) in the game as from a personal view, I do believe that he has repaid the DORNA investment.

The shame for me in some ways (and this is all about talent to start with) is that our neighbours on NZ have not had anyone since Crafar and yet they produce some bloody good racers, along with so many smaller countries.

I know the type and I have a feel for the type of business. Theses guys don't normally have any quick assets in their balance sheet, normally rapidly depreciating assets and debt and they're not rocket scientists but, they're generally colourful characters. What's your analysis?
