    Dirtfish

    Are one of the long term aims of Dirtfish also to lift the US championship to a larger sport in America?
    I like what Mr Rimmer have done so far, both on Dirtfish and his Rallycar collection!

    They have hired a very good team so far, so they could do it, to get more TV coverage, and by that more money into the sport in US/Canada.
    Is that their aim?

    If North America would embrace the rallysport, by getting it into TV, ala WRC in a light version, it could become huge over there!

    Following the fallout of Autosport/ Motorsport News, with David Evans moving to Dirtfish, others from that stable have set up a new magazine/website called The Race. However, rallying isn't among their portfolio.

    F1, MotoGP, Indycar, FE, e-sports

    Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???

    Well, Tanak is "their guy" and it will help introduce him to people a lot easier than some articles or some short videos. But I get what you mean.
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.

    In quite a few countries you have to marke paid content to stay within the law.

    What we kind of see here as that two of the main rally journalists moved from semi-promotional positions at autosport and wrc+ to an outift which might even publish fully commercial content.

    We'll see how it pans out in the long term.

    Is this where Jack Benyon has gone, as he's also just bailed out of Autosport ?

    And on Dirtfish, I have to say the quantity of content and interviews has been pretty impressive so far.

    They have really gone all-out at Rally Sweden and come up with some good comment and interviewed some new people.

    But I wonder how long it will stay free ?

    It'll stay free for a long time I think. Their goal seems to be to build a larger fanbase for rallying in America, you can't work on that behind a paywall.

    absolutely agreed, im so glad that they came into the scene. this is the level that wrc.com should have, unfortunately they dont and now having dirtfish, i dont even care about wrc.com (not that i really did before too)

    good videos, articles and interviews during the rallies, and let alone today there has been like 5 articles from them.

    good job so far and i understood from Colin there will be even more stuff coming.
