    What was the first twin-car super special in WRC? When did Rally Argentina return to Tucuman? What was the last year Ivory Coast was a part of the WRC calendar? When did the RAC Rally allow reconnaissance for the whole route? Find out here.

    I wouldn't normally post this, but just out of curiosity, what do people in this section make of NASCAR's gravel oval race? Almost unbelievable... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=noMeyPDW_5w

    The gravel isn't being cleared, as it appears, the gravel is getting rubbered in!

    It's a neat idea but the way NASCAR races are run these days with pauses killed the interest I used to have watching those cars trying to manage Watkins Glen. There are lots of small dirt tracks all over the US much like rallycross circuits in Europe and they're lots of fun. Combine it with a county fair and you have beer, animals, crops, a few races and a concert by an 80s hair metal band or a cover group and it's a great night.

    Correct me if I’m wrong but it looks more like the dirt is being worn down to the tarmac underneath, rather than ‘rubbered in’

    That's what I thought, but all the comments, including in commentary, say that's what it is. I was sceptical too though.

    EDIT: You can see it in these photos: https://twitter.com/BMSupdates/statu...55308639113224

    Of course NASCAR at its roots is closer to rallying than anything else:

    From 1994 to 1996 all WRC events had to take a year off to host only the 2-litre World Cup. In addition, servicing was taken to service parks. In the middle of this all, Rally Indonesia joined in as the first Asian event.
