Talks to Resolve WRC Crises

Good news for all enthusiasts of the World Rally Championship is that the promoter of the series; WRC Promoter GmbH of Munich and championship manufacturers are currently working together to achieve a positive and acceptable way forward for the beleaguered championship which, to the despair of many, continues to lose stature on the world motor sport stage.
This Follows the recent significant disputes between the two parties which came to a head on last month's Rally Portugal when the manufacturers gave their crews instructions not to give interviews to the official WRC television reporters. The promoter of the series reported that last week's crises talks between the two parties were positive and the Rally Portugal scenario was unlikey to be repeated.
The IRDC hope that both sides will now work together to resolve these difficulties and return the World Rally Championship to its rightful place at the pinnacle of international rallying - competition, organisation and presentation.
