    No, I'm speaking as a fan, a spectator. There are enough European gravel rallies.

    This WRC situation is a chance for more variety... in conditions and countries. It is meant to be a World Championship after all...

    Or at least if they add another European Rally make it a Tarmac event, if not, add NZ already!!!

    Well, would it be based in Istanbul? The majority of past editions were based in the Asian part, so not a European rally. But I agree that there are other rallies I'd rather see in the calendar...

    From inside info that WRC will be around Marmaris bay area which is a touristic part at south
    We raced last year a draft of possible stages which are really rough and crazy
    We will see this year addition

    I think it's important at this point to choose events that bring some kind of value (other than a payed fee) to the championship. That can mean a interesting or unique event (either by surface or geography) or an event in a market that justifies the budget to go there. I hope they don't do the same mistake as in mid 2000's to add more events that leads to fewer cars, MSport and it seems also Citroen already have budget problems. I think it's better to have more top level cars than more rallies.

    NZ would be nice as it's an iconic rally but Turkey was also interesting when it was part of the WRC. Japan would be interesting as well especially now since Toyota is back.

    But for the teams NZ is expensive. I personally love to see NZ back.

    It's expensive for sure, but if it's after or before Australia it would make sense. I'm assuming Australia would be on its way out if NZ is not on the calendar. As long as we have a few events outside of Europe such as Mexico and Argentina it's good.

    I for one would never spectate Australia after spectating Finland, Mexico or Germany. It's the worst rally I've been to spectating wise.
