    Funny thing is is that Michigan law does allow studs..Its the rule in the BOOK that says no studs..
    What most people don't realsie in just how low the level of competition is.. Here for example is Michigan rally from this year, and this is typical

    39 entries....17 Subarus..

    That was a "Rally America" event, one of the 3 private corporations "sanctioning" events

    This weekend 300km South was "Oregon Trails Rally" sanctioned by the new "American Rally Association", a new sanctioning body
    49 cars and 28 Subarus

    2 are driven with some vigor: Dave Higgins and Travis Pastrami-Sammich.
    the rest could not win a B class in a Swedish Regional level event against clubbie spec 2wd cars..

    Thisa is what passes for exciting driving in North America

    How can anybody think there is any way to bring a WRC event here or Canada if this represents a Chamionship level event?

    Also if they dont allow studs for normal cars, no one says it's impossible to make an exception for the rallycars during the rally.
    It would be a major event. Everyting is negotiable.

    Too many people daydreaming a bit too much, here's one from India who doesn't seem to pay much attention to WRC.
    Didn't bother to check if the APRC had a national event running alongside but the APRC had 10 entries...

    I checked the national list and about 41 crews were there, but I'm not sure how many of those cars have FIA homologation. (Link to the national list - http://www.mscc.org.in/img/Coffeeday...IST-2016-1.pdf)
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.
