    What irritates me is that if they merged the Scottish Rally and the Border Counties Rally, creating a two day Scottish Rally, you'd have a respectable event. Instead we'll have two events, one which is an embarrassing shadow of its former self, the second being a rally sprint come non-event, which has admittedly had to step up at late notice but is what it is. How can it make sense to have everyone come from across the UK to turn up in virtually the same place for two separate one day, virtually half day, 'events' months apart? It was the same case with the Mid Wales Rally (RIP) and the Nicky Grist stages. If needs be the two clubs could each organise their day, one on Saturday, one on Sunday, but the BRC round would be a 'Welsh Rally' formed of both events. This would be a respectable rally! It'd be an event of note, not just another clubmans rally that can't attract any attention... It'd be great if the 2017 Nicky Grist additionally incorporated Myherin and Hafren into their itinerary, but I won't get my hopes up.

    I appreciate UK rallying is a slave to forest costs, and nobody in rallying seems to have a pot to piss in when it comes to events, but these little non events seem to be an inefficient, uninspiring way of forming a Championship.

    If nothing else, at least the other rounds should be 130km...

    Border Rally organisers have been busy this weekend. Two new stages have been added on Fri night for BRC competitors. Now a 60mile rally. https://t.co/jmIjKDm7t4

    You have to give them credit for being pretty pro-active and adding extra mileage. 60 miles is probably the absolute minimum any BRC event should be - and you'd only want 1 event of that distance.

    In all honesty, UK rallying and the BRC needs a major overhaul to drag it into the 21st century. Quite how that would happen is anybody's guess - as a lot are stuck in the 70/80's.

    The BRC should be similar to the other British motorsport championships; BTCC, BSB, British GT.........Its nowhere near any of them. There was lots of handclapping & backslapping about the success of its return. To be brutally honest - its media coverage and interest from motorsport followers on websites/ forums was pretty poor.

    That would be pretty cool, especially if that opened up other opportunities with DMack for Cronin.
