It started by Honda pulling out if Formula1 and then Audi left ALMS and it was all because of economy downturn. Now another punch into motor sport’s face, Subaru pulls out of World Rally Championship and Porsche says bye-bye to its ALMS career.
The German sports car maker announced that they won’t compete in the P2 series in American Le mans Series however they keep support for 911s in GT class. So with Audi and Porsche out, the Prototype class in ALMS is almost empty so no wonder if the race go away altogether!
Meanwhile Subaru decided that it should quit Rally racing to save money for the factory as it’s getting hit by the financial crisis. That means only Ford and Peugeot Citroen remain in the action. Such occasions directly translate into the Motorsport loosing spectator and without spectators Racing will die, the bad thing is, we can’t find no one to blame it on to him !
