    Have to agree. The Promoter and/or FiA handled it poorly. The last major motorsport series to return, and by a long way. Add that to being invisible during the lockdown when other series were active...

    I'm sceptical about any marketing in regards to rallying - so much that only 2 manufacturers are in the top class. I can't recall much following recent Manufacturer/Driver Titles.....

    Can't say i'm optimistic; figures on the rise in Belgium, and had to run Tour of Flanders without spectators, plus all Cyclocross racing running without spectators as well. It will need something...

    Surely it depends on whether you're in Tier 3? If so, then I'd probably say no.

    I said a while ago (on another forum I think) in a post Covid world there will be less manufacturers willing to spend money on motorsport programmes; as such, there will be a battle between series to...

    Funny story; about 20-25 years ago, on 1st January, one of the UK daily newspapers had a calendar of sporting events for the coming year; this was when the WRC still had some mainstream exposure....

    I don't have a problem with Norn Iron having a WRC round; in fact I'm sure they'll put on a great show - but it ain't Rally of GB.....

    My problem is that Rally GB (and many other WRC events) have...

    To be honest, the WRC should have gone hybrid a while ago; all seems 'too little too late'. The WRC is in danger of being left behind.

    And the news today from Honda is going to leave many...

    There's probably some truth in that.

    However, it's another example of changing the sport, and it's principles in the chase for more manufacturers, more fans & media. Where do you draw the line?

    With events nowadays so short, drivers have to drive 'flat out' for the whole even. When conditions are a little different, some have trouble adapting. Rallying is meant to be about speed and...

    To be honest, I can't help but think that if the sport was run better in the UK, was more popular and received decent exposure which brought in all kinds of sponsors/ then ForestryEngland...

    The Escort and 45 mile one day BTRDA events are seemingly what most British competitors want. Affordable events, good value for money and all done and dusted in one day. Fine, that is what the people...

    This was commented on Twitter by a few people, who were 'shot down' for raising it.

    Well that is one way of putting it.

    I thought rallying brought all kinds of financial benefits to Wales, or so it is claimed. But not enough that the sport has any influence/bargaining power.

    Have just read that article; lots of good points, and highlights the complete shambles that the guidelines are. Go shopping, go to a pub/restaurant - all indoors = okay. But can't allow groups of...

    To be honest, I've always wondered why there wasn't a 'Rally Sprint/Time Trial' series using those venues. Walters has loads of roads in there, you could possibly run a 2 day event in there, using...

    Proper events; imagine that; something we don't really see that much in UK rallying. That could work, but even that maybe not possible.
