Finally Marty starts getting phone calls from the big players in the Sport for his services, with the Raw Talent that is Marty McCormack, I am only suprised that he hasnt had calls like this before now

He Really impressed Malcolm Wilson on the R.A.C a few years back in a MK2 Escort. Malcolms co driver was telling me that Malcolm predicted that it would only be a matter of time and he would probably go off setting the kind of times that he was setting, Malcolm couldnt understand how someone could keep the car on the road at those speeds without going off, and Malcolm was admittidly pushing on himself

I just think that the Guy has a Real Talent and should be getting more Success than he is getting, but then Rallying is a bit like that, I found out quite early on that its usually who you know rather than what you know in Rallying that opens doors -lol

Totally agree with last comment, look at what has happend to Kris Meeke being replaced with guys who can barely do the Mini WRC justice.
Rallying at WRC level has gone pure crap in every way.
It has gone too predictable regarding results.
The BRC is more competivive in every way, cars and drivers competing in a more level playing field.
Even both my own country offers more exciting rallying with the Irish Tarmac and Dunlop National championship offers better recognition of talent as opposed to the guy who has the most cash in his pocket.

Agree with comments above, Marty McCormack does seem to be super talented - just needs a big break and hopefully call from PS could start things moving for him. Some great Irish drivers out there at the moment, Kris Meeke, Craig Breen certainly has loads of talent and experience as does Alister Fisher, Keith Cronin is very impressive again this year - especially as he had a quiet year in 2011, Sam Moffett, Jonny Greer, Gary Jennings, Darren Gass, Shane McGuire, Robert Barrable the list goes on......

You are totally right.
Lot of the above talent was never given the right chance. I say Alistair Fisher might be lucky to get a break. But regarding the rest of them what is WRC's loss will be Irish Tarmac championships gain.
