    Timetable is released: http://www.autosport.cz/zavody/soubor.php?f=19625

    SD/QS - I guess it's part of SS Halenkovice or Žlutava with plenty of space for spectators; if it's what I think it is, it's the stage where for example Betti rolled in 2012 or 13 (I don't remember)

    SS1 - city stage, probobaly near same like last year; new thing is three laps for cyclists before the oldtimers, basically anyone with any type of bicycle can go if he is registered

    SS2/6 - Biskupice - return after several years, veeeery fast stage with some exteremly bumpy sections (if they are not repaired)
    SS3/7 - Semetín - classic, one of the best stages in CZ, reversed
    SS4/8 - Troják - this time more classic route from the past and downhill direction
    SS5/9 - Březová - basically a variant of Slušovice stage

    SS10/13 - Maják - modified and reversed
    SS11/14 - Pindula - for the first time this classic shall be radically changed, less than one half of usual route
    SS12/15 - Košíky - similar but reversed, very hard stage

    ok, so I was wrong. In that case I don't know where the SD/QS exactly leads but I hope it's not only the first part of stage near service because there is not that much of space for spectators (last year's test stage I think).

    Due to the emergency situation with the outbreak of swine flu among wild boars in part of Barum rally area there are going to be some changes in the route. So far was confirmed that SS Březová will be cut by 5 km (which means basically whole part out of the spectator circuit in Slušovice). Hopefully nothing more comes.

    There is no danger for the spectators but the officials try to prevent spreading of the illness by frightening of the animals by noise from the cars and spectators.

    Karel Kupec will likely miss Barum rally because the court took away his driving license for causing a traffic accident with serious injury of another driver. He may use foreign one in other events.
