    Saying things have improved is optimistic. I agree that the chance for immediate danger right now is lower, but overall they are heading the wrong way - this was especially highlighted by their referendum this spring.

    More European (gravel) rallies ? How exciting. NOT.

    This is the WRC... we already have an ERC & TER.

    Isn't it the promoter who puts forward the calendar. And the FIA just ratify it?

    I said it a few months ago, the Croatia inclusion stinks: http://www.wrc.com/en/wrc/news/april...4--12-12-.html

    But ERC and TER have almost no value at all so why should WRC guys care about them at all?
    Lets think a bit.
    Of course North American event would be nice but I don't think its going to happen until they start to have their own R2's and R5'sc cars etc.
    I would also love to see NZ back but we don't know whats actually going on there and why it's currently looking that we're not going to see them yet atleast next year.
    Asian or African event would be something that most manufacturers probably would like to have but we all remember how China worked out. Also I havent heard about safari for a while so I guess it's not coming back either atleast in a near future.
    Then if Poland now has to be skipped we have room for 1 more European gravel rally so why not do it in Turkey if it's safe enough.

    What else do we have available? "the new event" needs to be good enough rally to be in WRC, it needs to be safe, it has to have some value to the manufacturers and it also have to have strong-ish local scene or atleast good compination of those to work and I don't see any of those happening anywhere else.

    The whole NZ thing seems very bizarre to me. It seems like the only event which is prepared to be in the 2018 schedule. They're holding a candidate event a week after rally Aus.

    From the http://www.rallynz.org.nz/ website:


    With the prospect of being back in the calendar, the team @ RallyNZ are working hard to be hosting the worlds biggest motorsport event here in Tauranga, New Zealand, in 2018.

    There must be something going on background. NZ would be perfect canditate to have next years free spot.

    I used to love rally Turkey. Really, after Bulgaria and Jordan, it probably can't get worse than that.
