This isn't rally racing, the GRC wasn't either IMO. Rally racing has always been forever a European sport. They got nothing for the Europeans and I doubt they ever will with the U.S. population and Gov't red tape.
I am well aware what Rallycross is and like I said it is a European thing and yeah it is popular in Europe because of the rally culture that has been present for decades. Very similar to the relation of Nascar and the lower series here in the U.S. for an example.
Rallycross isn’t traditional rallying, that’s right. But Rallycross is its own thing , it is also a European thing. Check out FIA World RX, Nordic Rally X, Rallycross France, British Rallycross championship. They all run the same type of supercars as GRC and ARX.
The races in countries like Sweden and Norway are HUGE. Giant crowds.
I meant that literally not figuratively, if that makes any sense. Kind of like boat racing in the bathtub compared to an actual boat race. Yeah they both are boat races. I watched the GRC when it was on the tube. I thought it was a good start, but it didn't gain momentumWell you said it isn’t rally racing and then put a link to some timed rally stuff. Is world RX, Nordic Rally X, etc... rally racing then ?
Yeah I liked the GRC and the racing they produced. I'm not really sure what happened in that ordeal but this is a trimmed down version. Seems they only have Volkswagen and Subaru cars now. Are they on TV like GRC was? I seen nothing on their page that said anything about TV.
I really think it's something NASCAR should look into buying. It'd be a perfect companion event for NASCAR that could run mid week before race weekend or at tracks that don't have all three series present.
Should be renamed MRX: Midwest Rallycross.
I wish ARX had a longer schedule and visit more of the country. I'd love for them to come to the Southeast so I can watch the race in person.
Well, if nothing else, it'll be interesting to see what Scott Speed can do in the Subie. That thing has been a dog that only gets worse with each generation, unfortunately.
They need a west coast round at/near SEMA Las Vegas week or Los Angeles area for something, and a southeastern track... maybe Charlotte Dirt Track or something like that.
Is there an entry list?
I'd really like to see what he can do in World RX. But yeah he is attaining a grip of hardware for sure.
