    Am I the only one who's really bothered by the fact that for the second year running it's called the Che Guevara energy drink Tour de Corse? I get that rallies need title sponsors but good lord. Why not Josef Stalin Cola or Adolf Hitler fruit juice?

    How do these people, who normally scrupulously avoid any semblance of controversy, have the audacity to name one of the rallies after a murderous communist revolutionary?

    Because the sponsor is Che Guevara Energy.

    Prokop will not start. He told he wants to start with 2016 spec since Portugal.

    It's certainly not ideal... Having sponsors like these can't help any of the other rallies or the WRC to attract more premium brands. Yeah, money is money and this energy drink company has put some up in the absence of others, so we should appreciate that (it'd be interesting to know how much they pay), but maybe WRC Promoter should get more involved in linking up event organisers with corporate sponsors? I suppose that's easier said than done, particularly given how amazing we know RB/'WRC Promoter' have been at promoting the sport... FOM certainly play that role in F1 though, I imagine Dorna do too for MotoGP looking at who sponsors their races.

    The past Raly of Mexico had many problems to get sponsor after VW leave. I would not mind if it was called Tequila Pancho Villa Rally Mexico next year
