    Another example of FIA doing stupid stuff instead of having a proper strategy for developing WRC. They are behind all other categories of motorsport.

    Elena would not do Monte if Loeb makes WRC return

    DirtFish understands if Loeb does the 2022 Monte Carlo Rally it will be with a new co-driver

    In what way are they behind? WRC is a production car world championship that actually exists and is heading into the 50th year. You guys should start a thread "how to develop WRC and attract new manufacturers".

    This GRR initiative isn't about WRC, there's no points or championship and probably won't be mentioned at the top. If you don't like it and don't care for the regionals, nationals and emerging talent, don't look.

    10 or so years ago we had something called Castrol driver ranking. To try to find the best driver among WRC, F1 and Nascar.
    I just found this, it could be more out there.

    It is not an easy exercise to compare apples and pears, and I dont think that ranking lasted for many years.

    Same with the rally ranking. It is made for a driver in a Rally1 car in WRC to win every time. So not easy to spot up and coming talent using this one!

    But what the hell, lets enjoy the stats, and see how it can be made better year by year!

    The idea that the APRC is more competitive than a national competition, even NZRC to keep it in the same region... it just makes it some kind of FIA clout ranking, it's not to do with actual driver skill. There are national championships that far exceed the competitive depth of some of the regional ones.

    Maybe it’s the other way around, they persuade drivers to join APRC to get high ranking points? :P

    It's limited to the Rally1-5 cars too so won't be a good representation of the quality in either APRC, NZ or a lot of nationals outside Europe. That should be fixed even if just outside WRC and Europe.
