When rotaries race pistons in a series it is near impossible for some people to give the rotary its needed respect. Given how different engines with reciprocating pistons and rotaries are the rules will always favor one because it is impossible for them to be exactly the same. The problem comes when a rotary ends up on the podium many people will just complain and say "They only did it becuase the rules favor them." And since they are so vastly different in their worknings no one can disagree with them. But when the rules favor the normal engines and the rotary has problems due to the rule book some people will then say "Its just an inferior engine design. Why dont they give it up?" So you can see how tough it is for rotaries to get respect.
