I think that the 890 members here would read a good, technical, serious rally journal. The demise of RallySport and the success (for now anyway) of RallyXS shows that "real" rally has a limited print audience. If it was glossy and fan oriented enough to make money I guess it might work. Do you think the world needs more shallow fan mags, though?
Heck, I'd just be happy if Road and Track or Autoweek simply covered ProRally or WRC on a regular basis. If Rally got even half the coverage of F1 in these otherwise great car mags, it would be a good thing.

sport compact car covers every prorally. and the write up and pics are is good. my only beef is that they dont put captions on the pics cuz most of the time you cant se the number or the name on the windows. sure i know who it is but i have every car committed to memory but the casual or new fan may not know who it is. plus grassroots motorsports has a rally writeup by paul eklund every issue. so who needs road and track!
Sport Compact Car doesn't have Peter Egan writing for them... Plus R&T covers vintage stuff and other things of interest. I may be 22, but that doesn't mean I like tuner boy cars. }> And the cars I've seen in "Grassroots" haven't really been in my price range... And if anyone should be classified as grassroots... Well, more root than grass probably...
