Future of Historic Stage Rallies?

Postby Rod » Tue Aug 18, 2015 10:37 am

With the new MSA regulations which mean that older, weaker, slower Cat 1 cars have to follow the bulletproof modern cars and Escorts on stage rallies will we ever see Imps on historic stage events again?

Looking more and more unlikely :wink: I've seen how modern rally cars rip up the stages, even my 4 x 4 has to pick its way through the deep ruts left behind :o
Such a shame the MSA should change the regs, they obviously don't want historic cars to go rallying :roll:

The reasons they give don't make much sense, anyone who has marshalled/spectated on stages will tell you that. They want to be seen to be doing something following the stupid actions in Scotland last year. Trouble is they clearly don't have a clue. :roll:
