RE: My 2 cents
It's true that FIA sanctionned rallies all over the world have lower entry fees for privateers. Did you know that for most rallies there is no entry fee for a competitor from a different country who wants to compete? ZIP, ZILCH, NADA ! Not only foreign privateers don't pay an entry fee, some rallies (Rally Anatolia, Halkidikis, Hebros, Rally of Turkey to name just a few) also provide them 2 rooms (breakfast and lunch included upto 6 people) and 200 litres of race fuel absolutely FREE. Imagine how much the Canadians would love this setup if it was applicable here. Now let me ask everybody a simple question;
IF THEY CAN DO IT IN DEVELOPPING COUNTRIES, HOWCOME WE CAN'T
DO IT HERE, DON'T WE HAVE MORE RESOURCES THAN THEM ?
I don't know, maybe I'm thinking outloud again, maybe I'm getting slightly mad at SCCA for treating us like red headed stepchild (no offense my Irish fellows). I raced every single event I mentionned above and maybe that's why I'm getting pissed off, I've seen their resources and conditions yet they put together World Class events (most of them are coeff 20 or 30 European Championship rallies now) without burdening the privateers.
