yeah, and is present in most of the governing bodies around the world.

Most certainly, The Sport, not nessecarily our sport as the SCCA knows it...

Why not us, or why not THE US.???
Why not us? because we're not worthy. Sorry, I don't feel America is the propper place for WRC right now. Yeah, it would be great to see the heroes of rally, but I don't expect even 20,000 people to show, much less the hundreds of thousands that other places would bring.
Why not THE US? 2 words, Legal Liability. The lawyers have ruined this country (sorry Bruce
). You can't do a thing around here and not get sued. It's pathetic.
WHY NOT US (as said from a competitor)? Simple, because this is a world event, you can't be an Olympic Javelin thrower simply because you can throw a stick, and live in Salt Lake City... Don't fool yourself into thinking that many (any?) current SCCA competitor (with very few exception) will be ALLOWED to enter a WRC event.

as I expect it to be...
