IT’S ridiculous we are still waiting to hear about a punishment for Darcy Ward and I think it would be mad if he was given a wild card back into the GP series.
We never know what’s happening, he’s been suspended but he really needs to take his punishment now because he’s done wrong.
Patryk Dudek’s had his punishment now and he’s been banned for a year and banned for the national team for two years, which I think is fair enough. I think it might have been a bit too much to have given him a two year ban from racing.
For one year he can’t race and then the second year he can come back but can’t ride for his national team or in the world championship events, so that’s fair.
Darcy must have learnt at some stage because he’s had a few things going wrong for him, and I think a similar punishment would be pretty fair.
Drink and drugs are the same, it’s the same thing in law, if you’re done, you’re done. They shouldn’t go lenient on him just because he’s a speedway rider, even though he has some big, influential sponsors who can get him out of trouble.
I think it would be wrong if he was given a wild card for the GP too, he needs to learn and realise he’s been in the wrong.
If they hand him another wild card pick then they just tell him he’s alright, he doesn’t learn from it and he just gets a month and a half off during the season.
I can’t see how they’d do it anyway, Holder is in there, Doyley’s qualified now and maybe Batch might be in there. That should be a nail in the coffin for him.
He’s such a talented rider but he needs to learn, if he doesn’t he’s just going to waste everything he’s got.
