    As far as I know they can change the calendar, but it needs all championship registered competitors to agree to it. Sometimes people can disagree just to be awkward….
    If the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off!

    Yes they would. I remember in 1980 a bloke I know spent Ł10k on a fuel injected Terry Holye BDG (just the engine) to do the Irish Tarmac Championship. The year before I bought a brand new 2 litre Cortina (whole car) for Ł3.5k.

    MRF Tyres BTRDA initiative & prize. Good to see some more support coming in to UK rallying.

    That's a significant prize great initiative, MRF definitely appear to be filling a hole in the rally tyre market as the affordable choice from what I've heard.

    “This year’s event will feature a refreshed and extended route offering nearly 100 stage miles over two full days.”

    “We have been working hard to enhance Rali Ceredigion for competitors and this year’s event will offer new stages, greater mileage…”

    Looking forward to this, so long as Nant y Moch and Pendam remain and run in the same direction as ‘22 the stages will be absolute crackers!

    Turns out I was half right: https://dirtfish.com/rally/brc/fourm...onship-opener/

    The factory M-Sport Ford driver will run a Ford Fiesta Rally2 on the team’s home event – and might well be seen on further British rounds later in the season.
    Asked if there was any chance of a season-long BRC challenge from M-Sport, Wilson added: “Well, he’s certainly going to start round one. At the moment we don’t really have any plans for anything beyond that.”
    Let’s hope the former is closer to the truth!

    The Fiesta Rally2 certainly needs development and some promotion for more sales. Fourmaux doing and maybe winning BRC rounds in it wouldn't hurt.

    Interesting Day 1 in the Galway Rally with several different stage winners and rally lead changes, plus a nice variety of cars. In the end reigning champion Josh Moffett has pulled a 7.8s lead over McCourt.
    Pls help Chris Ingram to continue: https://www.gofundme.com/f/chris-ingram-wrc/
