WRC dieing?

Fri Feb 06, 2009 2:19 am

i was just watching wrc Ireland round on cable tv.
and i think FIA will kill the sport quickly.
its turned into a 2 manufacturer race, in a time of economic turmoil they should be making the sport as attractive to the car companies as possible.

I say let it die. Time for some Groupe B action!

They really do need to do it old school. The fact manufactures had to set up the cars according to the rules and had no room to experiment and do R&D work is what has caused everyone to drop it, imo.

Eh I think its just a temporary pull out by the manufacturers. Maybe its a good time for toyota to FINALLY come back to rally. Even if wrc does die it won't matter much. Rally is more of a low budget grassroots sport anyway

Of course group B won't come back. It's only made safer and safer for drivers and spectators. :?

yeh group b was a lil before my time i was two young or not born lol. but have seen video ckips and the cars and omg two days rally is for pussys.
as far as toyots getting back in, i dunno with the economic crisis hitting australia to the point where toyota cancelled the trd aurion (one of the quickest cheap factory cars) i just cant see them funding wrc car, but then i dont know how hard this has hit toyota europe and asia, they could be a different story

Some of the wildest dudes I ever met are rally car drivers, past and present. Most of the track guys I run into are as sweet and soft as a cupcake with sprinkles when compared to your average rally crew. Just saying i do both and the REAL rally guys are balls to the wall, no pu@@#% allowed. The land speed guys seem to be a particularly rowdy crowd too.

But nothing surpasses the legendary groupe b drivers.
