    The 'launch' at the Autosport Show was a perfect example of were they're going wrong. It was a good idea, but poorly executed.

    I think he's possibly undervalued as a talent. I hope his incredible achievement 50 years ago is recognised in some way. Maybe one of the UK publications should do something.

    I presume it was held at the Autosport Show to generate interest in the WRC for 2018; so, how many non rally (general motorsport) journalists were there, taking an interest.
  7. 50 Years since Monte-Carlo/ Daytona 24 'double'

    Thought I'd start a thread to recognise 50 years since the incredible feat achieved by 'Quick' Vic Elford, and for the same Manufacturer - Porsche; which is unlikely to ever be repeated. And...

    There was a time (mid 90's) when BBC Worldwide actually did the filming for the WRC, on behalf of ISC/ FiA. A lot of the crew were Brits who were involved in rallying.

    What are his qualifications for the job? He shouldn't be anywhere near the job. He's stealing a living.

    All this is proves, is that Ciesla simply has no understanding of the sport. He seems to want to repeat the mistakes of the past. Is the WRC a big enough to support 16 events? I don't think so. It's...
