    Thereís no doubt that DirtFish site is a bless to all rally fans around the world, as itís a joy to have people like Evans or Clark fully dedicated to inform us about this splendid sport, yet sometimes itís a bit annoying to see DF pushing some matters with very little, or none, interest to Rally, particularly the Extreme E future series.

    After all the exaggeration on Formula E coverage from most of the media, affecting the traditional forms of motor racing, is it reasonable to give so much attention to this new entertainment (itíll hardly be defined as a proper motorsport form), potentially hurting the WRC and other long established off-road series?

    Wake up DirtFish; itís time to stop feeding the enemy.

    Well no... it is categorised as Dirt... meaning a sport that will feature on Dirt. What would be silly if they started reporting on ATV's!

    Welcome to the future Rally Power... Electricity is coming!

    It's just business. Also, remember that it's an American company and they write about things which are more popular there.

    Despite the green propaganda, the change to electricity is not about saving the planet; it’s about saving the automotive industry and the consuming society. It won’t be easy for any of us to face the consequences of ours unsustainable way of life, but hearing hypocrite politians promising the world salvation if we start buying EV’s or eat tofu instead of beef won’t certainly help.

    Unfortunately, this neo-green BS already started in motorsport with Formula E, turning racing into a real scale video game, and apparently it’ll continue through Extreme-E TV reality show, disguised as a cross-country raid. For sure that’s not the future I wish for Rally.

    EV's may not save the planet but they are the future as the auto industry sees it and therefore rally (and it's fans) has to also if we want car Manu's to continue in the sport.

    I'm no fan of EV's in terms of driving, but I admit they will be a big help to people in our cities who are dying younger due to air pollution.

    I thought humans are living longer and longer as the years pass...
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.

    To put it correctly, studies state there are 1000's of premature deaths in cities linked to air pollution caused by vehicles.

    Well, then we eat it in or drink it in, either way the end result is the same.

    DF is also very closely aligned to Andrea Adamo (I assume he pays them to attend all these random events they've bee doing) so it is probably a mouthpiece for pushing his agenda.....

    Not Adamo, but Hyundai Motorsport...

    You could guess that for a certain amount of $$$ DirtFish writes about your team/driver/event.
