Hav­ing watched some of the cov­er­age on BT Sport and Youtube of the open­ing round of the WRC from Monte Carlo, two things be­came clear to me.

The Monte Carlo event is a proper rally with drama, ex­cite­ment, the un­ex­pected and a real chal­lenge from peak to creek.

Se­condly, we are no fur­ther for­ward on spec­ta­tor safety, with many har­row­ing im­ages be­ing shown. We will never be able to con­trol spectators, and can never make ral­ly­ing safe, un­less we com­mit it to the ster­il­i­sa­tion of sin­gle venue events or the safety of per­ma­nent cir­cuits?
