I agree with Ryan. I won't miss them at all. And I don't get the innovation argument. What does it matter if someone can gain 5 knots by tweaking the airframes and power plants of aircraft designed and built decades earlier?No, but I don't think it's a net win. I hate the crashes, but I believe that racing is valuable for innovation and I believe that the participants are adults who likely also believe that their sport has value.
Historically two things have really pushed innovation. War and racing. I prefer racing. It's voluntary, mostly peaceful, and the death ratio is lower.
