America is generally pretty unaware of rallying. It’s something that happens in ‘Yurp’. Where ‘yurp’ is they’re not sure. But it’s where rallies happen.
Americans have sent something called a Ken Block to ‘yurp’ and it takes part in the occasional rally, which does make for some splendid comedy crashing.
In return the Americans have taken rallycross to their hearts, in the guise of the X-Games. It’s a bit like Twenty20 compared to test match cricket, but it’s a start.
Clearly this enthusiasm came from somewhere. There is hardcore support for rallying in America. A small bit perfectly formed college of rally fans, no less. And so we are honour-bound to salute you, our dear American cousins!
