    Actually there hasn't been any official announcement about the rally being held...

    ACI's president was mad against the region institution because of money... (region has always paid 1million, and ACI started asking 1,5 because they need 4 to organize everything).
    ACI's president some month ago, after being refused to get 1,5 millions, clearly said at press that the event would never be run in Sardinia again. That he would have find an agreement with 2-3 other regions in the mainland.
    Nothing of this has happened so the rally should be held in Sardinia again 90%, but actually no official announcement has been released.

    I've bought the flight by the way (because it was only 20€, a nice offer), I think they will do it at the end.

    Anyway ACI has less money also because it has paid a lot to keep Monza GP in F1. Damn F1.

    What? Would be very unplesant if the rally wouldnt take place. Flights, car, hotel, everything booked...
    Keep us updated please.

    Now i think about it, one hotel send me back they were fully booked due to the rally, that must mean teams think its ok, i hope

    If you look for it you won't find any Press release. At least as far as I know.
    Anyway I would not be worried about it. Me too I've bought flight tickets.

    Yes we must do it - Service Park after shakedown. Just wonder if we were close on the stages in 2015?

    Wasn't in those specific places but maybe the same stages. I've been at SS7 Is Arenas I hope you were there as well. In my opinion one of the best stages of WRC that year. Pity they didn't repeat it.

    Yes lots of photos from the first set at SS7 - beautiful backdrop of the sea where we were standing. Would recommend that as a great stage. Coiluna is my favourite place, though. Good news that Terranova might be back, was there in 2011.
