RA should concentrate on helping current series in the upcoming season if there is to be any season at all. This past 2008 series had much less turnout even without the crisis we see now.
What would you propose?

I think this is the perfect time to try to get out there in a "green" movement.

Car mfr's are dumping their motorsports programs worldwide...and we know that the current rally structure had no pull for mfr's before this (other than Subaru). Add to that a possible government funding/tax credits for "green" R&D, and a "green" championship at RA just MIGHT pull in corporate funding, which is RA's stated goal for eventually reducing entry fees and other costs for the low-budget racers.

Don't like it, don't build to it. I've heard nothing about them dropping traditional classes.
