    I think not. They held several times an ERC event though. Anyway I don't think that it's good idea to move to a country with very weak local rally scene.

    Yeah, we have a long gap between Germany and Spain this year, 1.5 months basically and if they take out Poland then we will have another 1.5 month gap between sardinia and Finland. But As I understand nz would be in September so If they do add it to September then I guess it is actually ok to have a longer summer break between Sardinia and Finland.

    We in Belgium have a great rally the weekend before Ypres, very popular locally, we have a (vice) World Champion, the organisers are the bosses of Hyundai... Just dreaming, but would be very nice

    I think in terms of budget, organizing a WRC event would cost maybe 3 to 4x as much as organizing the event they're having now. No way Ypres could be in WRC in the first couple of years, without some huge sponsor. Also geographically I don't think Belgium is an ideal place, as it's too close to Germany, Wales, France etc.

    Ok, call me what you want but still... I've got a strange feeling, that something is going on here in Latvia. Can't tell nothing more because there is nothing to tell...just a very few indications that there is an idea at least. Even then I don't think it's related to 2018.

    More likely its Estonia (Otepaa). They dropped ERC this year, and Aava have said earlier that they are looking for bigger targets in organization level. And now they have Tanak on top level. And you cant forget Martin also.

    Is China not coming back? I was hoping they'd come back in 2018.

    If I remember correctly, they said not before 2019.
