    It's been interesting following this thread how it has covered very different elements of the sport.

    One thing that doesn't help the marketing side is the stale imagery the WRC Promoter produces at the events.
    It's nowhere because it's a low budget Italian production, not because it's a bad film.

    It's a pretty good film, not Ford vs Ferrari or Rush level, but it's still better than I expected. Unfortunately, it looks to me like it's too much dramatized for rally fans, but also it don't introduce the characters, championship and even rally itself for non-rally fans.

    What are the chances of a class like this starting to appear in world/european rallying? (Not the TOP CLASS, of course. Jezz)

    I think they suit other type of adventures better, like cross country, "enduroISH" stuff or whatever, where the cars are slower, but I kinda love this type of car. Same for the UTV/LightWeight/SxS classes in Dakar.

Fans need that. If other sports do have movies, now we have one too. I really enjoy it.
    Thank you for your opinion. Were there many viewers at the cinema?

    Me, my wife and 4 other people. I guess this is because the tickets here are so expensive and folks do go to the cinema rarely, except for some marvel/dc movies. I didn't care, I enjoy it. My wife, which by the way doesn't care about rallying at all, did say the movie was good. She constantly ask me questions. So at least this is the proof that this is right way to promote whole sport.

    Gran Canaria politician assumes that the WRC will visit the island of Gran Canaria next year:


    Aridany Romero, Sports Councilor of the Cabildo Insular de Gran Canaria, was one of the guests of Televisión Canaria during the broadcasting of the TransGranCanaria, an event supported by the island's political institution.

    At one point of the interview, he was praising the achievements harvested by sportsmen of the round island as well as the projects that are being worked on for the future, such as trying to bring to Gran Canaria the Vuelta Clclista de España, the Copa del Rey de Basket, the Football World Cup 2030 or the World Rally Championship

    The journalist Jesús Alberto Rodríguez, head of sports of Radio Televisión Canaria said in a joking tone that it was necessary to stop asking him about more topics because he might even bring Formula One, to which Romero answered: "Not Formula One, but the WRC is coming next year to Gran Canaria", in reference to the options that the Rally Islas Canarias has of being able to host the World Rally Championship (WRC).

    So we have them, Ireland, Paraguay & Saudi Arabia vying for a spot next season…say Paraguay will replace Chile, you still have 3 rallies over one slot (unless Poland’s inclusion was for one year only).
    Only you know your true potential.
    This year we rally #ForCraig

    TLDR: Making Rally2 the top class kills the customer base and therefore the class it self.

    The man has some sense and explains the problem quite well.

    Hmmm... IMO that was a bad argumentation regarding this topic "Rally1 or Rally2"
    He brought the Skoda situation in IRC that is different from nowadays Rally2 market, which is already stabilished and it is a success. He then says that Hyundai itself has a TCR program thats well balanced between Factory and Costumer/Privateers just to say that it would not work in WRC because of the "prestige".... Mate, honestly, BIG WRC FAN HERE, but You are literally talking about "Oh, maybe we will have to step down from our top class in this championship because theres not much brand's interest anymore"... so, let me ask: WHAT PRESTIGE? haha Idk, that one was weak
