    Car crime far is worse in many other cities - Liverpool isnt even in the worst 10.

    Dated reference, like the unemployment chants from football fans.

    It's also one of the safest cities in Britain and one of the biggest tourist attractions.

    Of course it depends on which stages they are running. Llandudno is further from Clocaenog, for instance, than Deeside, but closer to Slate Mountain.

    Sense of humour is also considerably lower than in other cities

    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

    I enjoy the R5s too - you've only to watch some of the vids linked from this thread to see how sideways and spectacular they can be - yeah ok, the noise is a bit feeble compared to a WRC or a screaming S2000, but they're still proper bits of kit.
    Fully agree with your appraisal of both the current WRCars and the R5's.

    Loved the way that the drivers were setting up the WRCars for some of the tighter corner - and the speeds they were doing that at - the current cars are not only quick, but they are really moving around as well. I was very much against the switch to 1.6L in WRC, but each iteration of the 1.6L cars has, in my opinion, seen the cars getting increasingly spectacular.

    Article also says that while there is funding from Wales for the next few years, from 2020 the rally could start to move around the UK.


    I find that second bit hard to believe if I'm honest. But let's see.
    Yes, it does seem hard to believe. However, whilst the event has turned a corner, and is a success - let's be blunt, it's still pretty much invisible. If the organisers want to attract more people to the sport ( and gain greater exposure for associated sponsors, etc) , then they need to move the event around the country. It's not exactly rocket science. Where the sponsorship/ funding comes from is another matter.

    And Fast Eddie is right; a stage in Liverpool could be great. This year has seen RedBull Drifters which pulled in a massive crowd - and this weekend' The Giants', which brought the city to a standstill (so I'm told, I was at RallyGB). Back in 1986 on the RAC, there was an overnight halt at the Albert Dock.

    Humour wears thin after hearing the same jokes for over 30 years.

    Clocaenog is the exception being the most easterly of the forest stages.
