RAC - Russians Are Crazy - Rally


Recommended Posts

I think the third one would have made it if he had not found himself hurtling at the gawkers.

 

Whatever happened to rallying? Did it go to some pay per view channel? We used to get lots of rallying in Wales but it seems to have disappeared as a sport. Didn't some sponsors pull out and the Police began fining the drivers for speeding here in the UK?

I recall 'rallying' in Wales in the 80's as being a function of all the lads going out and 'taking advantage' of the empty gravel tracks.  That's where future rally stars learnt their skills, and where future spectators learnt to appreciate the skills of the stars.

I'd guess that enthusiastic gravel driving doesn't happen so easily these days.

Nothing says you and your sport isn't welcome here more than a copper with a clipboard.
