There were several serious accident over the past year. Two spectators were killed and a driver and codriver were killed plus several other accidents were the drivers or codrivers were injured. Insurance companies do not like this many serious incidents in one year. The insurance companies indicated that it would significantly influence SCCA's rates. SCCA carries a blanket policy that covers all its racing (road racing, solo, rally etc.) To save the organization as a whole they were forced to drop rally. The SCCA will, however, continue to sanction rallycrosses. There are two sanctioning bodies that will continue to sanction rally. One is N.A.S.A. and the other is a new player on the block , Rally America, which was founded by several SCCA rallyists.
