Butvilas coaching some drivers from Poland there, time to time. For professional rally team is important to have all service they need, not just pick some road and drive around for few days.
    In Poland there is a company from Olsztyn that professionally prepares such tests https://www.facebook.com/odcinkitestowe/ - and Citroen uses their offerings every year - Hyundai and MSport also tested them in previous years

    Challenge is that in Poland there is a number of roads that is designated test roads, and most of these gets very, very rutted. So difficult to get rally conditions.
    Rally Poland changes conditions from sandy field tracks to harder gravel roads.

    More about "why test not in Poland for rally Poland" in Lithuania media. Original text: http://samsonasrally.com/samsonas-ra...t-wrc-komanda/

    So basically Samsonas Rally (same crew from 300 Lakes rally) organizers crew suggest Hyundai to come and test in Lithuania, they filmed 4 stages, Hyundai guys watched it and try to find most similar to Poland roads - all was suitable, they choose 3 of them and did testing. it was required hard surface roads, and service zone near stage. Also everyone in team has their own food wishes, so test organizer should supply required meal.

    And it's very sad that everyone still remember those disaster stages in Lithuania from Rally Poland - Hyundai's first question was - Is they are same guys that responsible for those stages in Lithuania...Hope someday Lithuania get 2nd chance, because we have good stages also
