Ral­ly­ing’s dilemma Mo­tor­sport News

Motor Sport News - - Racing Reports -

this week (June 8, 2016) con­tin­ues to re­port the doom and gloom that cur­rently is stage ral­ly­ing.

Mull loses the Griburn stage. Jack Benyon pon­der­ing WRC rules in 2017 and the fu­ture of R5 cars. Max Vata­nen and DMACK strug­gling be­tween R2 and R5 cars – good­ness knows what the dif­fer­ence is.

David Evans get­ting ex­cited about the East­gate clock in Ch­ester and per­haps Rally GB mov­ing out of Wales – maybe driven by Na­tional Re­sources Wales and their in­crease in for­est road charges, al­though hav­ing been a for­est stage rally or­gan­iser I’ve never thought the charges were suf­fi­cient to meet the re­pair costs.

Me, I’m glad I was in­volved in stage ral­ly­ing in the hey­days of the 1970s and 1980s when it was real ral­ly­ing, when the RAC (oh, sorry Dayin­sure Wales Rally GB) at­tracted such vast en­tries that the Bri­tish Cham­pion would be seeded in the 1940s...

Now when is the next Bri­tish His­toric Rally Cham­pi­onship round?
