Do we need tougher, rougher, meaner special stages?

    I think that, even if they did make the stages more technical and unpredicatble, strong opposition would be met by both drivers and teams as well as the promoters. Let’s not forget that the 80+ km special in Mexico was dropped out because it was not “spectacular enough for the show” as well as it “didn’t allow drivers to push flat out 100% of the way”

    The way modern rallying in the WRC goes is for small sprint stages where drivers and teams compete for the fastest and cleanest route possible. Add in mixed weather and the stage will be too slow for modern rallying standards.

    idk, it comes out a bit pessimistic, but I doubt we can rekindle this excitement with the current set of promoters :/
