Salutations: I'm not talking about Pro FIA world rally - why not sponsor a winter production endurance or start entering factory cars in Euro GT3 production? Surely GM has enough balls left to get a strictly front wheel drive class on the ticket somewhere.. I'm kinda of tired of GT1 pro getting all the glory anyway - it's not entirely unlike old nascar to my mind in that the cars being run have been modified to the point were they bear little if any resemblance to the production car anyway.. Slalom racing! - Cones, an open parking lot and a TV camera.. It rocks to watch, almost anyone with a helmet and fire suit can play and it's a blast! Hell - they used to run a thing here called the Winter Lobster Rally which saw production cars (I saw my first mini there) running the snow and ice covered back roads from Nova Scotia to Montreal in stages.. It was some of the best racing ever - it was run pretty much production and on real two lane mostly at night as I remember..
