A veritable treasure trove of the same adive they have for more than 40 years that has led to US rally being smaller now, less entries, few events, shorter mile than 30 years ago. Led to the phenomenon that Ander's Green (one of the good guys and a thinker who like to put numbers to things) observed looking at every person who ebntered a rally in America between 2000 and 2014 where he found a shocking 43% of all those entries did 3 events then dropped out never to be seen again---and 27% doing one event then gone...
So yeah i don't represent the views of the majority who just repeat the same old tired sloganeering, who are not shocked at the failure to grow, not shocked at the loss of noobs after just 3 events, and who are smug because they've puttered down stages about the same speed that TSD guys do.
I represent those who know that the foundation has been paper thin forever and
that the same brilliant ideas of "If we just got a WRC event/TV stars/ 15 year past their prime euro guys/washed up X-Games guys who played on childrens bikes or skateboards (pick any) then that'll get us on Tee Vee and then the sponsorship dollars will begin to flow like a river" has been tried and failed and really would only benefit those with a pre-existing publicity machine anyway...
Just look at the absolute shambles that is Rally America Inc, especially shameful in light of all their big talk about "Professionalism" and "all the millions that our video productions will be able to leverage".
What hosrseshit.. Same as its ever been.
I stand for not glory but good brainless affordable fun..
If its more fun its good..if it is affordable and sustainable...
2 classes; 2wd and 4wd----and score 4wd only for "manufacturer Championship" points.
Status quo or go back and build the sport anew with concentration on the foundation.
