    This news is nearly a month old now but I forgot to post about it at the time, it is good news though: All gravel rounds will be required to have at least 80 miles (129km) of stage mileage.

    Poor situation for the leading UK rally series to be in. They should have had this sorted well before now.

    It's 2017, can you imagine the BTCC cancelling their first round?
    The sport in the UK needs a massive shake up. The 'Premier' rally series should be run & promoted professionally, and be financially solvent. Really, there should be a dedicated team who organise all the BRC rounds; the local club offer assistance and local knowledge.
    What will the MSA do to sort the sport out in the UK? It really is the poor relation of motorsport.

    Real shame. Would probably have headed back as I enjoyed last year in the snow.

    Another reminder that although the BRC might look like a shiny new building, it's built on shaky foundations.

    Why? Honest question

    Things happen when organizing events, the championship sorted it out quickly it appears. What more could be desired? Was anything lost due to the switch?

    I follow what goes on with both the BRC and ARC quite a bit, as over here we take many lessons from them. Always interested in a different viewpoint.

    The fact that another rally was available and made an instant replacement is good and prevented a period of uncertainty. But as Simmi said, this cancellation does show how how fragile the series still is after all the excitement of last years comeback and high hopes it gave us.

    Could you still call that a rally in all seriousness? I see they also repeat stages so there is only about 25 miles of unique stages... Jost Capitos dream I suppose...

    In our country we call this events as rallysprint.
