    I like all three island events a lot, they are great events. But for ERC it is easily too expensive (time and money) to have so many island events...

    I understand you, but Gran Canaria fans have right to enjoy ERC rally.

    Rotation of island events would be great but it cant happen for obvious reasons.

    For sure but at that time the support from tobacco companies helped a lot.

    It is same with all island events - Azores, Madeira, Canarias, Cyprus... To bring drivers there they must spend more money and pay some costs for the teams as this events are easily more expensive for them than others. Thats why I am not telling that money and costs for running the event are the biggest problem. Biggest problem is time which must team, truck and rally car spend there...

    For the ones wondering if island events make sense and are good for the competing teams - a piece of information. The recently published official presentation about 2017 Junior ERC shows that the organizers have to offer logistic support for the teams. They have to offer free boat transportation and free air tickets in order to bring the drivers and team members to the rally. See page 6 of the following document for details:
