Rally GB this weekend - is anyone going to any of it?

Should be a good one - the entry looks strong (and has the added interest of Solberg vs Solberg) and from what I've seen the stages look to be in good condition (and the weather looks like it might be typical rally GB weather).

Just watched the first report on S4C - not bad, once I found the subtitles button


Mind you I did discover that there appears to be no Welsh word for "sideways" - either that or the welsh speaking commentator just forgot it and reverted to English in his excitement!

Looks like Tanak then.. barring a disaster in the final two rounds.

Evans was more than a bit unfortunate to be only fifth after seven stage wins. That mistake on day one was a killer.

Sadly there was very little coverage on the UK mainstream media. It seems the WRC are happy to simply preach to the converted via their premium website. It is unfortunate when the new WRC video game seems to be doing very well and potentially creating lots of new rally fans.

Definitely looks to be Tanaks to lose (and to be fair it has done for some time). Neuville looks destined to be a 'nearly man' doesn't he?

Agreed - there really hasn't been anything on mainstream media channels, not even a passing mention it's been on. The big positive for me was having a stage at Oulton Park - that was pushed via MSV channels, so whilst it's still promoting to a motorsport crowd it may have brought in people that wouldn't otherwise have shown any interest in a rally. Back in the day stages like those at Chatsworth or the Silverstone Super Special were shown live on the BBC and again brought in crowds of the less hardcore rally fans - surely something like that would be viable now?

The UK mainstream media aren't interested, and haven't been for years, which is sad when you remember the old RAC coverage.

I do wonder what the WRC get out of their visit to our shores, as there can't be much national publicity.

I went! Travelled to Myherin on Saturday: spent about 10 hours in the car getting there (and back) and about the same on the stage. It was a very long, but excellent, day.

The latest specification cars continue to astonish me. The speed they are are carrying on loose surface is just mind-bending. Despite lurking in the treeline I got absolutely blasted by a (very sideways) Meeke during the second running of the stage, totally worth the trek though.

Spent yesterday catching up with the Red Bull coverage. Real shame Oliver didn't last the duration, as he seemed to have an immense amount of speed. Nice to see Petter go out on a high as well.

I hoped it would be between Tanak and Ogier this year and that looks like how the season is going to end. As said again it is for Ott to lose now, hope he keeps his head. Would be nice to see Meeke and Evans rack up a few more points and at least finish the season in the top five.

Never, ever again, worst RAC I've ever been involved with.
I was in a Radio car on Alwyn yesterday.
Only 48 cars with the first batch going @ 3 minute intervals,made it as dreary as the weather.
Absolute rubbish.

Three minutes between every car? Why?

In Sweden the WRC cars come in 2 min intervals and the rest during 1 min.

Was this something done for the live TV on Sunday? The cars were only a minute apart on Saturday.

I'm guessing to string it out because there were so few cars, whatever it made lots of people unhappy.

Well done Tanak, getting maximum points was important. Let's hope that car is reliable to the end. Nice end to Solberg's career, will miss that great showman, hope his son does well now

Well done C5 for showing the final stage live
