    I'd like to see a few WRC drivers try another discipline; get them out of their comfort zone. One thing that Loeb can be praised for is not just sticking to rallying. Too few drivers try other...

    He's been doing the official WEC Le Mans coverage for a few years - and why not? And there is no need to apologise for mentioning Le Mans....It's THE big one of the whole year.

    Thoroughly enjoyed it; there may not have been an outright battle for LMP1 honours, but Le Mans is also about reliability, no matter how fast you are - as Toyota know to their cost.

    You make a good point. The series bosses, (and I especially mean the WRC) try and justify their decisions, yet the evidence doesn't necessarily support it.

    Citroen don't really build desirable cars - certainly not performance variants; they haven't taken advantage of their previous WRC success. A 'C4 by Loeb' and a DS3 Racing are really the only 2 half...

    After his off on Saturday, I immediately thought 'that's it' - and they would call time, but at the end of the season. As it is, the timing is woeful; something else must have happened. You don't...

    The current scene is a hard sell for UK car websites/ magazines, which might surprise people on here. Put an article about Gp B or 70's era rallying, and you'll get quite a lot of comments/ interest....

    Can't comment, as I haven't watched the highlights yet. However, having them at 06:40 isn't likely to get great figures, most interested people will watch on 'catch up'.

    I've said it before, but in 2018 it should be streamed live on the website. Highlights just aren't good enough anymore. Especially as rallycross is a 'made for TV sport'.

    It's not just the WRC; both British GT and BTCC have rounds this weekend.....and with the best will in the world, even they're much bigger than the BRC, and are more media savvy than the BRC.

    A big market, yet I can't recall the last time I saw any of them use their WRC efforts in any advertisement.

    In my opinion RallyGB needs the WRC far more than the WRC needs the event.
