One could only dream of this happening nice thought, the Belgium and Dutch championships would I think be a more suitable option as it has proven credibility. Just how there series are fairing at the moment I'm not sure but combining the nations would I'm sure boost the entry's and be more enticing for competitors as the circuits have been a feature for a long time for the respective series, would like to see Lydden, Valkenswaard, and Massmechelen in a series these are all accessible and not to far away! I believe Essay is a stunning track but may be just a little to far?

The Benelux countries are struggling for numbers now too, their national series is even worse than ours for numbers, they should clearly be running together. Maybe losing WRX is a reason for this, not sure.

We in Britain need to do two things.

One is amalgamate the BTRDA and RAC series. No brainer that someone with balls should have done years ago in the MSA. Or should never have allowed the Stott split years ago.

Two amalgamate with Ireland like we used to and visit there for either a Mondello double header or there and another track like we used to. Hopefully then some of their guys would be enticed to come over aswell as they used to. More tricky this one due to costs obviously.

Combining with France is nice on paper, but why on earth would they want us!!! Our cars don't match their classes other than Supercar and their series is going fine thanks!!

Assuming that the loses that are rumored are untrue and aren't in big 6 figure pound numbers for the lydden rounds the past years. WRX is expensive.

When the rich boys leave Lydden and go an play at silverstone for the OTT Rallycross what's the likelihood of this being another permanent track open to use by the minions or is it just a pop up Mickey Mouse track?

I think you will have to wait and see, I have not heard anything about it yet, but will probably go there a few times this year, so will see if anything is being done work wise.
