    Closed road rallies attract spectators, Spectators have a financial input on the area.

  2. Barrie Stokes FRANCE

    This is something which is long overdue.

  3. Richard Crozier UNITED KINGDOM

    Significantly more freedom of regulation regarding closed road motorsport events has been in place for decades in many other EU countries such as France, Germany and Spain, and has a proven track record in helping foster increased tourism, boost local economy and nurture youth enthusiasm for sport. Select such events in the UK including the Jim Clark Rally and Mull Rally have demonstrated the significant potential for revenue generation for rural communities, as has the Birmingham Superprix in the past in more urban environs.

    In addition to rallying, the likes of hillclimbs, kart races, etc., have great potential to provide adaptability in closed road motorsport event formats, providing a format and level of event appropriate to the specific desires, needs, finances and geography of a given community/area and event organisers. Given the increase in closed-road events for the likes of cycling and running in recent years, the (by comparison) much heavier restrictions imposed upon motorsport in this area can no longer be justified based purely upon complacency, and – particularly in times of financial austerity, where initiatives and events to boost local economies are sorely needed – are worthy of re-consideration and relaxation, for the benefits they have the potential to bring.
