    The organisers of Britain's World Rally Championship round will now have to rethink the final day of the October event after the governing body declined a planned powerstage using the all-asphalt Great Orme test, which had been extended into the centre of Llandudno.

    Anyone who have read the regulations recognized immediately what's the point.

    All asphalt power stage on a gravel event. What could only feel strange about it?

    I support of organisers of Wales Rally GB. Anything which is uncommon will help to break sterility, will make the championship more interesting.

    At least there would be no issue over road position...

    I don't really see why if you're giving artificial points out at the end of a stage that the stage itself can't be 'artificial'. Sounds like it could have been a good show for the TV but oh well. The GB route was a moving target last year and it sounds like it will be again this year.

    It is interesting how this all played out publicly. But the organisers effectively PR'd themselves into a corner with the press releases.

    To have such stage is ok, to use it as a power stage is not. It would be different if let's say every second or third stage was asphalt one like on Cyprus.

    "Sometimes, I don't understand this sport - we wonder why we stay hidden away behind the trees."

    When reading things like this I got the growing feeling that this sport is just a pain in the butt for people pouring money into it.

    The future doesn't look so bright when people are so eager to refuse the nature of this sport. Sometimes is so hard to be a rally fan.

    Throw some chicanes on the tarmac stage and the FIA will be happy. Solution!
