Personally i like the idea behind the brc where it gives talent a chance to shine and not money and technology.

Rory is probably right to do the BRC as he probably has a genuinely good chance of winning it. The championship will be worse off for not having WRCs, but at least Rory has a fighting chance of winning the championship without WRCs around. It would still be great to see him take on the other Irish lads on tar in Killarney, Donegal or Galway...

The BRC is still a challenging championship although they have made a mistake in not including at least Wales.
Whatever support he will get to do the BRC he will have no chance to get a budget to do ITC. He would have a very good chance to win the BRC outright next year. He has nothing to prove on rallys like the Lakes, Donegal, as he is possibly Irelands most talented driver, and on the Jim Clarke, Manx and the short lived ulster he had the others behind him

The names that have been mentioned around the BRC for next year are very exciting. If it all comes off I reckon the championship will be very competitive and a very tough battle for everyone.

I am reserving judgement on the championship until it actually starts :)

Well its general trend for the past decade+ has been a fairly dire, depressing, downward one. Would be extremely surprised if it suddenly comes good when they, yet again, excercise fairly drastic measures and ban the top machinery. It didn't work before, it's unlikely that it's going to come good this time. Premier series? Hmm.

Plans are hopefully BRC. Or else, continue with the 205 challenge. He has no interest in the ITC and diffo not the finances for any form of wrc car. If nothing opens up on the BRC scene, we will probably see a real talent watching from the ditches unfortunately

I can't see the ITC being of any benefit to the man at all at all. But on the other hand, the BRC aint gonna get him very far either. What's he got to prove now? It's unlikely that he'll ever be seen on the WRC scene, and that's a sad fact.

Incidentally, given the fact that the BRC has been an absolute ball of sh1te for the past decade, why is it still recognised by manufacturers over the ITC? It seems ridiculous that you have works cars being entered into events which have barerly 20-40 starters, and then ignoring a series which is of a much higher standard in terms of machinery, competition and popularity.
