    'Should have been' only works if somewhere else was willing to put up the money. But yes, rallying in the UK is at a very low ebb, so low interest.

    Other areas have found better ways to promote their tourism but Wales must find Rally GB useful as its been going for years now. I dont think many foreign tourists visiting the UK come to Wales compared to England and Scotland, so Visit Wales is getting some publicity from rallying. Plus its virtually their national sport after rugby ..

    Suninen could be dropped from Turkey if the team has no more chance to win the manufacturer's title at that point. Instead, they wanted him to drive as many rallies as possible on the beginning half of the season. Ogier's wins in Monte and Mexico encouraged Wilson to put Suninen in the third car for Argentina.

    It went completely below my radar that Suninen was going to start in Argentina.

    Fast Eddie was right then. Wilson wasn't really aiming for the constructor's but now they have a chance they pursue it as much as possible.

    It was told to him as a surprise during Mexico.

    In my opinion RallyGB needs the WRC far more than the WRC needs the event.
    Definitely the words of someone who has not been to Piccadilly Circus in the past couple years. There's been a good amount of Hyundai WRC stuff on the famous building sized screens there. I don't watch anything with ads really so I presume that was part of a bigger campaign as well.

    Seems a compromise has been found in the WRGB power stage issue:

    Give points for a stage earlier on Sunday. Uhh.

    That will make the remaining sunday stages even more of a cruise than before. On the other hand since drivers/teams will focus on setup and tires on the first stage it might result in bigger gaps in the tarmac stage if there is anything to fight for.

    Better to have the driver's 'trying' on a proper stage (for the PS points) than on a glorified tarmac SSS.
