Hearing you Doug, i can't see any other way around it!

In thier infinant wisdom they decide to basically exclude 90% of the Tarmac rally cars out there then they should expect to either have a small field (thier fault) or some cars not quite legal..... In my opinion even if they do exclude the winner because of injectors and E85 they would do more harme to their event than good!

FFS just let them race and fix the rules next year!

urabus knows their stuff

I agree with you Doug but I have a bit of a moral objection. Why reward them for rubbish roads in a compromised car? I am all for supporting local motorsport but it has been the Bob and Ross show for far too long and here is a golden opportunity for people to vote with their feet and get Ross and Bob to listen to the real world and not the people running around in old cars that don't want to upgrade to current specs.

It's a bit like the VHS vs beta debate. It doesn't really matter which is the better format but at the end of the day octagon has reached critical mass and it is just stupid not to run those regs.

My 2c.

Losing is worse than death. You have to live with losing....
