The worst part is that the man behind it is in ISSA BOD itself. ;-) That is why I want an official statement from ISSA what they are all thinking about. And looking at the sponsors of that ranking says something as well I guess. If that is good or bad publicity is up to everyone to decide themselves.

Then a part is up to the event organizers - To race in a pro class the event organizer could or could not dem...
