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.

WRC » Rally Australia eyeing WRC finale slot


Who do they think they are? They should be thankful they're in the WRC. They should get what they're given, not trying to get the final round!! Rally NZ is a far better event that should be in the WRC, not Australia. As for the final round, it should be RallyGB, but it needs moving later, to after the F1 season had ended. The event used to get the F1 writers covering it, but not anymore. Now it's lucky if it gets any mention from the national press. Not helped by being based solely in North Wales.

The 'official' GT-86 CS R3 ran as course car in the hands of Isolde Holderied. [EDITORS NOTE - STORY NOW UPDATED TO SHOW CORRECT PICTURE. APOLOGIES FOR CONFUSION - CRASH.NET]
