I picked a heck of a time to start thinking about joining Rally in the US. Had no idea things were so, er, "interesting" with events, the SCCA, and the people involved.
In my life experience, there are some things that I have learned.
1. Change can be difficult
2. Sometimes leading means making unpopular decisions
3. When people associate the blame with specific people, often
there is more going on behind the scenes than what is publicly
I've seen some postings about how things could be better if they were done differently, how Rally in the US is suffering at the hands of only a few people, and many other things on this board that indicate a high level of frustration with the way things are.
Obviously, the SCCA ProRally issue is complex and involves multiple parties (Club, Pro, the SCCA, Manufacturers, event organisers) representing different interests.
My interest in all of this is that I want to understand the scenarios that could play out for the future of US Rally and how that impacts me (sorry, being selfish here) via the impact to the sport itself.
What do you see happening in the future? How would you solve this issue? Have there been any GOOD things the SCCA has done to promote rally lately (it can't all be bad, can it??)
