I cant watch IRC, they throw sponsor names in your face every few minutes, its like watching NASCAR, feels like they're gonna start saying "This powerslide was brought to you by Hershey's". IRC and unfortunately WRC are now a load of rubbish.

That puritan crap really pisses me off. So what if they have sponsors for everything? It's because sponsors are interested in the series that you have the privilege to watch it. Don't be such crybabies.

Capitalism FTW.

One of the problems of both series is they are on satellite as opposed to terrestial free to air tv.
WRC was ok when they had it on Channel 4 during the classic days. Problem is Eurosport have rights for IRC and that means ads, rallying is very difficult to cover live, would be better off if they just had highlights every night.

Completely agree, both series need to be on Terrestrial TV - the problem is that none of those stations are interested in minority Motorsports. Motorsport=F1 to the general media - it's not just Rallying. Look at the WTCC which started this weekend - that also should be on 'Normal' TV.
As long as both series remain were they are, I'm afraid they'll remain as they are - minority/niche sports.

I lay lot of the blame with the FIA and manufacturers
Cars need to be made more basic to allow a larger amount of other manufacturers/teams to join the series.
Also having two rally series WRC/FIA going against one another is not great idea either. I used to look forward to WRC/BRC etc but my patience is wearing thin.
Think lot of people will move on and rallying will die alltogether or move to something favoured by tv, talking about crappy super specials.
