    Sorry, but no. It's now in a sad state for rallies, entries and even marshals.

    Maybe they're getting confused with the BTCC, which is also celebrating 60 years.......

    Penasse probably regrets already his decision.

    Interesting to see in MN that Cameron Davies is finding it more effective to do a one make championship in Spain/Portugal than another year of BRC.

    I haven't seen that story, but I can guess that maybe the importers in those countries are quite friendly to the sport, in regards to one make series.

    Jamie Brown spent years in Belgium because it's quite cheaper than on home soil.

    I don't blame anyone for going abroad for their sport; they seem to get better value for money.

    Going slightly off topic, but UK Off road motorsport is the poor relation, when compared to circuit racing.

    A big part of the reason for that is an awful lot of those within rallying don't understand/see the benefit in spending on promotion.

    I've customers in both sectors, circuit racing totally gets the whole image / fan engagement / speculate to accumulate angle. Bar a handful in rallying there's an inward looking attitude and any cost/time commitment outside of the actual car there's total disinterest.

    A good example is look where start venues for rallies are and the times thereof

    We need another Rothmans!

    The closest we have come since is the amount of effort that Seat put in back in the F2 days, be it the big foam hands or the support around the JCMR with the promo bods and banners everywhere.

    Regards hiding the start venues etc think that has as much to do with the paranoia surrounding the sport in the UK post the JCMR inquiry as much as anything. IMO the sport is far too apologetic and visibly scared of upsetting anybody be it the Forestry Commission or local scout groups. You reap what you sow if we are not careful this lower than low key approach will see the demise of the sport sooner rather than later closed roads or not.
