Top Australian rally driver, Brendan Reeves, has called for some of the Australian Rally Championship events to be shortened to ease the financial burden on privateer competitors.

He says changes to the format for some of the ARC rounds would reduce time away from work, as well as providing a big reduction in car running costs.

He said that the biggest cost for competitors is maintenance of the rally cars, and that shorter rallies and more compact events would go a long way to increasing competitor numbers.
