Club rallying gets the vote
- 1st March 2007, 1:28pm
Sixty per cent of voters in a RallySport Magazine on-line poll have said that club level rallying is the most important branch of the sport in Australia.
Nearly two-thirds of those polled agreed that without a strong club level base, rallying wouldn’t succeed at the top end of the sport.
Twenty per cent of the voters thought that state championship rallying was the most important, while the other 20% thought the Australian Rally Championship was critical to the sport’s success.
The vote backs up the views of new Australian Rally Commission chairman, Ed Ordynski, who has so far made a point of having regular meetings with state rally panel chairmen in his attempt to rebuild the sport from the ground up.
"The rally community knows full well that if the WRC stopped overnight the average competitor would be completely unaffected - same goes for the APRC and pretty much the ARC," Ordynski said. "However if state and club level competition stopped, all of rallying in this country would cease."
