If you have an interest in rallying (of the car variety) or have wondered what is involved in setting up a World Rally Championship (WRC) event, then you may want to check out this seminar.
This year, in September, Japan opened a new chapter in motor-sport history. Despite Japan's 40 years of involvement in the international rally scene, this year saw the first World Rally Championship event being held in that country, and in fact was only Japan's third international rally ever. I have been fortunate enough to be involved in all of these events and during this seminar will be talking about some of the technologies used in the WRC and giving a behind the scenes view of this huge international event.
