Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

SHOULD the Lorry Driver of the Year Association put the clock back to an esoteric final in the backwoods or should it aim for the bright lights and popular appeal? The second choice meant accepting accommodation at Silverstone on August 18 on the back of the truck grand prix.

Lorry racing is not everyone's favouriLe pastime but it draws the crowds and the association, now without Commercial Motor sponsorship, decided to risk "taint" to make the competition better known.

The two events could not be more different. LDoY competitors will, as always, sit up and beg with exemplary restraint, leaving the pyrotechnics to the racing drivers. The contrast may indeed rebound to their advantage by emphasising the ordinary lorry driver's patient exercise of road safety skills compared with the "motorway madness" of the race track.
