To me, John has always embodied everything that was good about rallying. His professional approach to event organization has been envied by all and copied (unsuccessfully) by more than a few. He always has time for every competitor and worker, be it Ari Vatanen or Ima Beginner. I can only hope for his swift recovery.
A note from Dick Milligan, a long-time rally enthusiast and photographer in the NW:
Ben - I went up to Seattle today and got John Nagel out of the hospital. He
seems to have recovered very well, he is just weak and needs to take it easy
for a while. If you would , could you let the nice Special Stage folks know
about this? He was really cheered about the postings that wished him well.
Thank you - Dick Milligan
