Podcast: Tire talk, tech talk & M-Sport’s future

This week's SPIN, The Rally Pod dives into the technical conversations swirling around the WRC service park


With just a week to go until round 11 of the World Rally Championship, technical talk is on the rise.

Tires are at the forefront of rallying discourse due to Pirelli’s decision not to bid for the 2025-2027 tender, while the prospect of non-hybrid Rally1 cars being made available for national competition has been raised in an effort to save M-Sport’s WRC future.

Join David Evans, George Donaldson and host Lisa O’Sullivan on this week’s SPIN, The Rally Pod as they discuss tire tenders, reflect on the old tire war and veer off into a chat regarding future technologies.

Plus, you’ll get to hear some wonderful memoirs from George about his first time spectating abroad at the 1984 Acropolis Rally – the debut gravel event for Peugeot’s 205 T16!
