Day 131 – The Politics of Rallying

_Captain’s Log, StarDate 2007.11.15-07.58_

I called up an old friend from the rallying circuit today. I was happy to find that rally cars are getting cheaper to own, but unhappy to know that that is because there are fewer and fewer rallies to go around. Last year, there was much speculation and anticipation about 2007 being an excellent season for the Indian rallying scene, with makes like Ford and Mitsubishi getting into it in a big way, and more (including Skoda) to follow. But this year turned out to be quite a disaster (IMHO atleast) because a lot of rallies were cancelled. Politics still has right of way in India.
