    Ultimate show of invisibility on the UK SPOTY show with no mention of rallying at all (despite M-Sport, Meeke and Evans 2017 wins).

    To put this in perspective, the champion of that huge sport of para-dressage was featured...

    I'm afraid that is were the sport is in the UK; the big crowds on RallyGB have kidded some people that the sport is bigger than it actually is....

    But it's not as tiny and niche as its being made to seem by the media.

    I bet there were more people watching Rally GB alone than watch Taekwondo but its champion was nominated !

    Remember Colin being beaten by someone who had one good hop skip and jump in 1995. Rallying only has itself to blame in the UK for its lack of coverage. There are plenty people in positions of authority that would rather it inhabit the murky shadows than it be in the limelight at present...

    I dont expect rallying to get much coverage on the likes of SPOTY, but none at all compared to some of the minority sports that do is ridiculous.

    Somebody somewhere around here mentioned something about new R2 regulations from next year.
    Do we know more about that? What would the changes be?

    According to Fast Eddie on the WRC forum, M-Sport have plans for ERC to be announced soon (maybe with DMack?)
