    Or you can just watch the supercar class of World RX, which IMG have said will continue alongside the electric class.

    It's on par with what World RX was, which I thought was amazing value. Given that a forest pass on Rally GB is £30 and you only get to see 2 stages, I'd say it's pretty good, although I'll wait to see what the entry is like before bothering. The advantage of Lydden before was that it was on bank holiday, so getting back to Devon late wasn't an issue because I didn't need to be at work in the morning.

    Supercars were much more popular and competition higher without manufactures millions and modified top cars from other series.

    You just can't win. People complain when manufacturers get involved with big budgets, then they complain when manufacturers take their budgets to electric. EuroRX existed fine without big manufacturer budget, who's to say it will be any different once electricity is on the scene?

    I wasn't talking about privateer electric so much, more that Supercars will continue to be used by a number of people.

    Not going to watch the European, British, French or any of the other National Championships that will still be using "traditional" Supercars then? Change may be coming, but this isn't going to be an overnight thing!

    For me the number of regular GRC entries (and the number of locals that can be attracted) will determine whether its good value or not. You are looking at two full days of racing (heats & finals on both days) which is one over on the World Championship, however I think the support classes are much weaker for the GRC, so that's a negative.

    Yep. For me the way the future of the European Championship (and thus traditional Supercars) is handled is going to be absolutely critical. They wanted to make the World Championship the series for manufacturers and, with the introduction of electric, they seem to have done that.

    Ensuring that the European Championship offers an option for the privateers and traditional fans is the key for me now.

    I think the quote was "as long as there is interest" (or something like that). I'd personally rather see all the traditional Supercars go to the European Championship and have that Championship return to it's form circa 2010.
