Podcast: Radical ideas, fuzzy statements – and Portugal

Latest episode concerns how rallying can restart, and where the WRC might (or might not) go

Moves towards resuming real-world rallying are starting to accelerate, but there are still a lot of unknowns and concerns.

In our latest podcast, Colin Clark, David Evans and George Donaldson have a typically passionate debate about the options and the latest developments.

Clark tables some ideas for radical reinventions of rally formats, and questions whether lengthy globe-trotting World Rally Championship calendars will ever return. The guidance issued by Motorsport UK recently comes firmly under the microscope too.

With this being the week DirtFish is celebrating Rally Portugal to coincide with its intended 2020 schedule dates, the gang devote the second half of the podcast to their memories of that rally.

It’s had a turbulent history, and due tribute is paid to the people who made sure it could secure a place on the modern WRC calendar.
