    I have maintained that it will be difficult enough for NZ to hold on to a round of the Asia Pacific Rally championship and that is where efforts should be continued.

    Australia has a fairly mature/ older rally fleet too. An old Mitsubishi won their last national round compared to the new Mazda that won the last national round in NZ.

    I would have preferred to have seen a World Rally go back to Cyprus or Japan.

    So, future of Poland was already decided long before rally even started? I knew it.

    The Aussie fleet is very old. We won outright last weekend in an EVO 3 by nearly 3 minutes in a State event. All the newer cars are in Tarmac rallying.

    Finally today Rally of Turkey confirmed by FIA.

    http://www.wrc.com/en/wrc/news/octob...4--12-12-.html

    This year stages are improved and more stages added at North close to Mugla.

    Last years narrow slow stages improved to faster style and real challange for drivers.

    If I choose (but I'm not), my choice would be:

    1. Monte-Carlo
    2. Sweden
    3. Mexico
    4. Tour De Corse
    5. Argentina
    6. San Remo
    7. Kenya
    8. Finland
    9. Germany
    10. Turkey
    11. Croatia (it's because I'm near)
    12. Wales
    13. New Zealand

    Maybe some other rallies not the same over & over again. It changes every 5 years only one event.

    Having Australia as the final event on the calendar is a bad idea as this year shows. Titles are already decided and subsequent lack of entries make this event rather a damp squib.

    Yes true. And everyone have excuses of logistical dificulties and expenses. Last round must be in Europe. But I think that organizers of Rally Australia keep pushing to be final there.

    Footage from the Marmaris rally looks a bit like Sardinia and a dusty Portugal so perhaps not quite as rough as previous incarnations. No NZ though...
