Yet another victim of the collapse of the world economy it seems. I wonder if there will be any decent racing series next year - or will it simply mean the renaissance of the privateer?

 

Here is the BBC story: Subaru pull out of WRC

Honda pulling out of F1 and AMA, and now Subaru is out of WRC. I think this is the tip of the motorsports iceberg.

 

As Keith said, how can these companies justify the multi-million dollar racing programs when many are laying off thousands and close to going bust? It's going to be a very tough time for pro racing.

 

It's also tough to justify a lot of these series based upon a "race on Sunday sell on Monday" mentality.
