Such a shame - a terrific rally, the drivers loved it, and a great country to visit!

The rotational calendar surely killed Rally New Zealand, a rally with significant history in the WRC, and in it's place look at the short lived events that have come and gone - Japan, Turkey, Jordan, Bulgaria, Ireland, Norway...

The NZ government should do more to help out with a major international event like the WRC. If it was rugby or yachting they'd throw fists full of cash at it. I bet more people watch wrc than rugby around the world

WRC is in the toilet IMO. Loeb's dominance put a serious hurting on the series. Sadly with Oiger seemingly filling Loeb's place its going to get even worse.

WRC needs better competition and more rallies in the US.

Guys, the WRC most certainly does not Suck at the moment, it has never looked so promising !

Ogier, Latvala, Neuville, Ostberg, Hirvonnen, Meeke, Mikklesen, Novikov, all ready to surprise with a Win, VW coming into this years Championship and winning Rally after Rally whilst Citroen and Ford scrabble to catch up

Hyundai ready to burst onto the scene in Monte-Carlo with 2 new cars and 2 newly contracted works Drivers, I dont see this season as being in the toilet, only the U.K. TV coverage is in the toilet, I think it is getting very interesting, especially when Hyundai announce the Two new drivers (I suspect it will be Solberg and Sordo)
