    It reminds me a bit of Cyprus, but IMHO Cyprus is a lot tougher...still annoyed though that they took away NZ like that, who knows when NZ will be back.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    Money, I suspect. A bit of government support can go a long way.

    Do the events pay the promoter for their inclusion?

    I know it isn't any new news, but it does say that Estonia has intentions of it's own to run instead of Poland and it seems that NZ won't be there next year, because it's too expensive.... well how about they just drop Australia for crying out loud and put NZ where it belongs...I mean come on 27 entries last year? and since it's not in Perth it's not even close to be a unique event like NZ. But hey this is the World Rally Championship, so what if they have 10 European events, as long as the other 3 are outside Europe it's a world championship right???
    If in doubt, flat out!

    As much as I like a new round outside of Europe we have to consider three things:

    1. Which round outside of Europe which is not running right now has a real tradition in WRC? New Zealand and Safari probably, Japan as well... But it's a very short list! And I don't want to lose a round in Europe. Poland maybe, but anything else would be a real loss!
    2. If a 14th, 15th or 16th round would be added to the calendar it could happen that M-Sport and Citroën leave the WRC. This can't be our aim...
    3. There are only a few, few countries outside of Europe who have got a local rally scene. Some in South America (such as Argentina or Paraguay), New Zealand and Australia indeed, the championships in the US and in South Africa are a joke... I may have forgotten some (China, Lebanon...), but definitely not
    many!

    So to be honest, I would like to see the calendar to stay like it is. Australia could be replaced with New Zealand, they could move to Sanremo instead of Sardinia, but that's pretty much it! At least that's my opinion... Others are more than welcome!
