Rallying is always a difficult sport to make media friendly, the bulk of the casual fans who have come into the sport in the last 20 years are via gaming. A promotor needs to have access to multi media platforms to catch the widenst audience. Web for the hardcore fans and prime time magazine shows for the people the sponsors wnat to target, with gaming to bring the kids into the sport. But, with the sport deviating so far from the OEMs road cars it becomes harder to fund and finance the package. Rallying needs a heavy shake up and has done since the WRC rules were "adjusted" to let the Corolla compete. A non 4WD GP4 / GPA format should be re investigated 100% stock body with a production derived engine with classes based upon RWD and 4WD from standard kit of parts open to works and teams. A clubman car should be sub 150 000 Euros....only an idea but you know it makes sense
