Rally Kenya?? Another thing that WRC has done wrong.....1,000 Lakes, Safari Rally, etc
Throwing history in the bin....and they wonder why it's not as big as it once was.

Kenya finished with a Toyota 1-2-3-4 - some impressive drives but again the Fords and Hyundais look a bit fragile. The title is already in Rovanperas grasp isn't it? It's going to take a monumental collapse for him to lose it from here.

There were some great photos around from the weekend - proper Safari stuff - Giraffe, Zebra, fesh fesh and stunning scenery. I'll try and catch up on the coverage at some point.

1-2-3-4 is impressive.

However, when your rivals continue to self destruct it makes things easier. Hyundai can't build a reliable car for normal WRC events, how on earth is it going to last on a Safari?
As for M-Sport, they don't look capable of taking it to Toyota for a whole event - notwithstanding the Monte event which was more down to the driver on a specialist event.

Hopefully something is worked out so Rally GB can return to the calendar. It's not been the same without it

Hope won't be enough; cold harsh £££££ is needed. And nobody is willing to part with it to fund a UK round of the WRC. And is anybody really surprised?

MSUK hosted a British motorsport day in Parliament on Monday; from their tweets, I can't recall seeing rallying mentioned/ featured at all.

How long has Hyundai been in the championship? The reason for asking is that I wonder if the program has got to the point where the board may start questioning the returns on investment to date?

Since 2014. Neuville was runner-up in 2016/17/18/19 and third in 2021. Tänak was third in 2020. About 21 wins out of 100 races.
