WRC » Loeb: No plans to do more WRC events


DafyddLarcombe: Oh well, Im a bit sad that he wont be back I think he aquitted himself really well, he was fighting with Ogier and all his experience and Mastery of the Monte shone through and helped him make up for being away for so long. 30 seconds faster than Ogier on the opening stage was a Great start for him. A real shame about his stage 8 mishap but with his road position he was fighting a losing battle sadly Nothing lasts for ever though, at least he gave Ogier a good fight on his final appearance. I think his comments before the Rally about having nothing to do in the winter were designed to unsettle Ogier. He was obviously trying to get inside Ogiers head and make a statement that he was just out for some fun and that he could beat Ogier without taking him serious, maybe it worked on the first stage - lol
Completely agree!! Loeb hasn't done any WRC events for 15 months. He will have been 'rally rusty' and picked up racing driver habits in that time

WRC » Ogier plays down rivalry with Loeb


JimmyTheRealOne: I can't wait. WRC and Rolex 24 - the season begins! I know Loeb has nothing to prove in WRC, but still... WTCC is so bland, I'd like to see him back full-time.
If Loeb can't do the WRC, then I'd like to see him in a proper race series, not the joke that is the WTCC. Sportscars or GT is were he should be, driving powerful cars, not FWD saloons.

WRC » WRC to televise live stages in 2015


Shows you how badly the WRC is promoted when this is classed as news. It's the FiA's 3rd series, so it should have regular Live TV coverage. Yet, most of the coverage will be on PayTV, so few people can watch. Shooting themselves in the foot, again! RedBullTV already exists, they could use that, but they want to make money. Could do better!! Remember the IRC Montes? All but 1 stage live.

WRC » Ogier cruises to eighth win of year in Wales


They cover what people want. Compare the comments for F1, MotoGP and then WRC. There isn't the same level of interest. I've been looking across the internet for RallyGB news/ comments. Apart from the dedicated rally forums, people just aren't bothered about the WRC/ RallyGB any more. If people cant get interested in their 'home' event, then there' no chance the rest of the year. Its the same few people commenting. I imagine 10-15 years ago the story would have been far different.

WRC » Kubica: 50-50 if I stay in WRC


Its great seeing him in the WRC, but is he making progress? And is he enjoying it? I'll support any decision he makes, but feel a return to racing and the DTM is probably better for him. He drives on the stages like he's on a race track, and leaves very little margin for error. One feels as if he could have another big one while he stays in the WRC.

WRC » VIDEO: VW, Ogier celebrate another WRC title win


Apart from a few Rally forums with WRC threads, you'll find WRC doesn't generate much discussion. I dont know why, but there it is. Is it purely down to the poor promotion from RedBull? Could the Manufacturers do more? It seems most UK fans interest is in F1 and BTCC, not a surprise as both have live coverage on terrestrial TV. In 2 week we'll have Rally of GB, I don't expect too much to change. Were once it attracted huge interest.
