Just wondering how others felt about N1 . With the swift out this year and only a handfull of 106 Rallyes in the country is the class now virtually dead.

Is it time a up to 1400cc standard production class was set up instead to open this class up to unhomologated cars, that could run on international events? and target it at v.young drivers 18-22??

If not is it time just to abandon the class altogether?

As an owner of Grp N swift Im under the impression that we have 1 more year of homlogation. The international homlogation ran out at the end of 2002 thus the national homlogation runs out at the end of 2006

I think to be honest were just better off leaving things the way they are. I know I started a thread about the situation in the national championship and therefore I may sound like a bit of a hypocrite but the way it seems to me is, in Ireland we have a fairly simple class structure, good entries all across the board, fantastic machinery, great events, everything seems good. There's a stability about rallying in Ireland. On the other hand in England, or mainly the british championship, there choping and changing the whole time, not giving anything a chance. Something will take over from the swifts, lads will build 106's, Civic's, Yaris's. I definately wouldn't change or scrap the class.
