    People are constantly complaining about everything. And it going to worse. Be happy that there is still rally. Some of us haven't that luck of being watch it closely...

Would rather see complete new thinking about where to have the HQ and the whole rally.
    Isn't this the issue with a lot of WRC events? The same stages year in, year out - it all gets a bit repetitive.

    Whatever happened to the epic Jutbo stage? Remember it causing carnage back in 1998; Radstrom went off, Sainz had a 360 spin, McRae had electrical issues, etc

    Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???

    Finland is good at this, always something new or run in the other direction.

    And it looks like it'll be like this in 2018 as well. The core and the base will remain, but we are expecting to see something new again.

    Sweden's route lacks imagination. If I were to make decision about going, this itinerary doesn't make it more interesting.

    Well, it's not that easy for the organizers. They're supported (a lot I suppose) by the Värmland region, so all Swedish stages are in that region. They can't go more up North (because they'll go outside Värmland, and may not have similar support for the rally there), going South is a big risk with the unpredictable climate. Colin's Crest is probably a must-do for many sponsors... So it doesn't leave much space for something very different from what we have now and had over the last few years.

    Anyway, I'm fine with the itinerary, looks quite ok for spectating. I just booked the flights and rental car, rented a house just North of Torsby. Will be my 5th Rally Sweden, already looking forward.
