    I think some of us don't like the fact that Turkey came out of nowhere, having done nothing previously to deserve inclusion and bought it's way into the championship...

    It's quite easy to understand, why some of us that are into international politics think a WRC-round in turkey is wrong.
    Erdogan is one of them, the undoubtly not good situation in the country is an other one.
    A country that put mayor parts of its socalled "enemies" into jail, without any scentence or fair trail, is not worthy eighter tourists or a world championship of any sort.
    Its been like a WRC-round in Israel or Saudi Arabia.

    Sanremo will no more host not even the national round. Forget Sanremo as a possible WRC event, they don't have the money.

    As for the gravel roads in the regions of the center of Italy... Nobody talked about that anymore.
    The facts are simple: the Sardinian region don't want to give more than 1million to ACI for the organization of the rally. The organization requires, ACI says, 4 times that amount and gives Sardinia a lot of return on investment. But ACI still spends the other 3 millions.
    ACI also had to pay more money to keep Monza circuit inside F1, so last year they said that they will have held the rally in 3 different regions in the center of Italy but I think they just said that to put pressure on Sardinian administration.

    I don't know who is right or not and I actually don't care. Anyway now there is a big silence on that matter. I don't know if it is positive or not. Let's see.

    Judging by the crowds on the ERC event on the mainland this year can see the Italian round staying island bound for some time to come

    Rally Sardenga have shown there 2018 logo on Twitter. I guess this means we can be sure of rally Italia on the Sardinia island than! Great news!

    Here is an idea, why not allocate rounds to the countries that have the greatest activity in motorsport full stop. Lets look at the top 12 countries based on number of permits issued across all sectors of motorsport per year by their ASN irrespective of the size of their population. That would show the countries where motorsport is most popular and most active. That's where the WRC rounds should be conducted, support the countries that support motorsport. Sure would take politics and buying your way in out of consideration.
