    Another weekend, another weekend of elite level sport - and large crowds present. (Silverstone, and Royal St George's, Kent).....It is annoying as a rallyfan, but it's a case of 'hard luck' and wait.

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

    Dunoon is 30 miles and a short ferry trip from the center of Glasgow. Those stages are more accessible to residents of central Scotland than the Welsh forests are to the population of the English midlands - ferry capacity is likely to be the most limiting factor for access.

    Stylistically I think format looks good, it doesn't look as cheap as some of the highlights have appeared in recent years, even when they were still on television... But seriously, why is there no onboard footage?! I'd love to see the onboards from the last stage at least. Would this not seriously enhance and extend the coverage cheaply? It's not like most crews are running without cameras nowadays. It's like going back 35 years!

    I’d also like to see one or two introductory scenic shots, probably so easy these days with drones - though on an MoD site that’s probably a firm no!

    I’ve been watching loads of early 90s BRC videos on VHS Rallies on youtube lately, it was always nice to see a very big shot of Brenig reservoir, Kielder Water and, presumably, one of the lochs around Perth.

    I agree the quality has gone up by quite some margin compared to recent years but it’s still missing a few extra details like 80s and 90s rally reports used to have.

    I wonder if they can do the Grampian slightly differently due to no extra MoD-related restrictions...

    I guess it's more difficult these days with everyone already knowing exactly what happened and having watched streams and social media clips.

    I think they could show a longer programme though - 8 mins is a bit pathetic, like a token gesture.

    Have a look here. It may be open to flex but looks unlikely

    Mellors Elliot Motorsport - Proton Iriz R5 set for rally return

    We are delighted to announce that Ollie Mellors and Max Freeman will return to the stages after their sizeable shunt at the Nicky Grist.

    We have begun work on a new car for the pairing who have entered the Hills Ford Three Shires Stages in a bid to get comfortable on tarmac for some exciting plans later this year.

    Huge thanks to everyone for their well-wishes and support!

    This isnít meant as a BRC bashing post, but look at how well the Welsh Championship covered the NG Stages: https://youtu.be/9yJNs8uBWbw

    There are clearly some things the BRCís coverage does a bit better but you can hardly fault this for nearly 27 minutes of good quality coverage
