Is Mikko Hirvonen calm (before the storm)?

  • Troy

    It’s a shame that none of the mainstream media in Australia is properly covering the rally. As far as I know, there has only been one article on the Daily Telegraph website, which is the major daily newspaper of New South Wales. When it was held in Western Australia, it would be all over the papers and Perth in its entirety got behind the event. Sadly, since Coffs Harbour is only a relatively small location, there is nearly zero coverage outside of Coffs. And couple that with the poor free-to-air television coverage – a 30-minute day one highlights package shown after midnight, which is sort of symbolic to where the WRC is at now. It needs to be on TV, it needs to be innovative and it needs to have exciting cars that entice people to make that trip into the forests and watch the world’s best drivers. People simply don’t know that its on, as the media is focusing on the finals series in both the National Rugby League and Australian rules football.

    A bit off topic of the article yes, but I thought you might like to know. Keep up the great effort, I enjoy reading your insights into the WRC! Cheers from Australia
