    Why do you and so many others hate Rally Turkey so much? What has it ever done to you?

    San Remo is not an option due to too little accommodation, if I'm not wrong it was a gravel rally in the Tuscany area they were talking about? Correct me if I'm wrong.

    I was talking to some Italian guys in Hafren on WRGB, and they said that San Remo would never happen as the costs are much to high for the organisers compared with Sardinia.

    Why was it dropped the last time it ran btw?
    I've only heard from people that has been there that they don't wish to go back due to the way they were treated and very aggressive street sellers, i guess it's different where the rally runs though. To me the faster the better, huge difference watching onboards from Spain vs Wales, slow long corners on tarmac can get tiresome.

    Indonesia won't happen until they can reliably close the roads. I remember talking to Possum about when he ran there and he accrued 12min of penalties as he cleaned up a family walking down the middle of the road on a blind corner.

    Wow, i never heard things like that before. When did that happen?

    As Indonesian, i admit that could be a problem, and is a problem, although i never heard such complain during its WRC era

But unfortunately no words were about that at the moment.
    Money, politics, contacts. Greece had big chance to replace Poland for 2017, but it didnt happened. Now the situation is much worse for them...

    On the WRC website the calendar graphic does specify Sardinia now. So it's looking good - despite no official confirmation yet. I think next year will be the final time it's in Sardinia though.
