Re: World Rally Great Britain
Everyone I know (hardcore rally competitors, marshals and spectators) gave the Rally GB Wales a very wide birth again this year.
If you want to get the atmosphere you used to get on the classic stages, go out on the Roger Albert Clark (R.A.C.) for historic cars or the Lombard Rally for Endurance cars and historics. Both rallies are a true test of man and machine and have a fantastic atmosphere out in the stages.
The 3 day, made for TV format of the WRC these days has most of the once great events (The Monte, 1000 Lakes, RAC, Acropolis) a shadow of their former selves and the Safari is no more.
This year actually got some cheap flights out to Sardinia, better than paying £90 for the privilege of parking in a ditch and being made to stand in a 'sheep pen' in Wales.
