The poll looks like it's for spectators

How about I just want to be able to rally at an affordable cost.

Your affordable might be more than my affordable. :)

As is, racing and rallying will take as much money as you have. :-(

I love the poll...it's an "Are you still beating your wife?" question. Like a lot of polls, the question presupposes a conclusion.

RE: Our club looks like it's for spectators

I voted for 'c' because I dont think 'a' and 'b' are mutually exclusive. It just takes someone to balance things properly. And yes, all I do care about is seeing cool cars.

RE: The poll looks like it's for spectators

Like most people, I won't be answering this survey because it doesn't seem to include the following reality:

In every country where rallying is successful, there are many many privateers competing in the same events with the manufacturer supported teams.

Hello! We can attract manufacturers without selling out to them! Dave

"Corporate Greed" ...... Please don't insult our collective intelligence with this tired, old phrase for simple-minded, class-warfare proponents.

If the "corporations" are profiting so handsomely, buy some stock in them!!;-)

I agree with Dave. I've seen it work in other countries. It doesn't have to be a 'this or that' proposition. In fact, if it is, neither side will win. It is possible to do both, it just takes clear commitment and balance and skill to do it.

Yes, I took some liberties in formulating those choices. Thankfully, most of you don't seem to be taking it too seriously. If you were then I would truly be worried about the future of rallying here... :eek:

RE: Reality Check

Club Rally, Pro Rally and WRC can co-exist.

Both Club Rallies and Pro Rallies can greatly benefit from involvement of more factory teams if SCCA was to allow WRC cars to compete here and help regions to organize a rally candidate for World Rally Championship.

Who knows maybe the exposure would trigger some American manufacturers to consider getting actively involved in Rallying.

Since factory teams would have to pay higher entry fees and would contribute to the overall expenses of the rally it would allow the organizers to keep the entry fees lower for privateers.

One thing is for sure, things would get a lot more exciting both for competitors and for spectators.

Thats all I have to say about it.

Cheers

:+ :+ ;) Branden - No offense taken. I just know that once the current Club & "Pro" growing pains are sorted, the "corporations" could be a real asset to the sport, at ALL levels.

I'd just rather avoid making them think their involvement is resented by those of us who love rallying.

Just a point of clarification.... The SCCA does not *organize* any U.S. rallies. All our rallies are put on by independent organizers. Most of these events are *sanctioned* by the SCCA.

We wouldn't want any confusions.

Sure involvement is great, but policy setting and being catered to
are not! If they want to get involved make it easy for them and let them ask-don't asked them and roll over for em!! :+
