    A big market, yet I can't recall the last time I saw any of them use their WRC efforts in any advertisement.

    In my opinion RallyGB needs the WRC far more than the WRC needs the event.

    British rallying part of this forum one of the quietest and the main British rally forum is a shadow of its former self so a reflection of the lack of media and manufacturer interest quite possible.

    At least I'm trying to keep it alive and this weekend we have the first closed road rally to be held under the new legislation. Maybe this is when the fight back starts?

    I can understand where the Welsh Govt is coming from in wanting 'more for their money' from WRGB.

    The stages in the forests are great for rally drivers and fans but they dont show the best of Wales to any great extent as a tourist destination.

    I remember some on this forum raving about photos of the cars on the Great Orme with great scenery of the coastline in the background. They were shocked and didnt realise how beautiful it is on the N.Wales coast.

    The Welsh Govt want to show this to the world via WRGB.
