    I agree with Sal the 2nd, problem of rallysport in UK is more complex. Especially BRC needs reborn, but to be done in a proper way. Not like they were trying in last years. They had big eyes, but forgot to make proper basic things to be successful...

Add in landowners who are scared of the green lobby and insurance/liability issues and too many calls for use of ever decreasing locations.

    Other sports like cycling seem to have a very vociferous lobby behind them rallying just seems to want to apologise and dissappear up its own exhaust.
    The aforementioned Rallye Monte Blanc-Morzine:

    and there are three other classes/events. What a fabulous entry.

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

Supporting the push to keep the Forestry England woods available for all is crucial as the closed roads act doesnt mean all events will simply migrate to tar. In Yorkshire and the East Midlands alone the loss of forestry venues would have a massive impact.

    Two-page email sent in support. Hope others do the same or traditional UK rallying could be finished.
