    Changing Rzeszow to Mikolajki was decision of polish ASN. In that case calendar changed to disproportion in surfaces. There was an idea to replace one rough gravel with tarmac event (thats the real reason why calendar was not published earlier), but finally it didnt happened. Maybe next year

    Aleks Zawada is going to continue his fight in JERC in 2018. He said his only goal will be to win Junior ERC. Any other result will be a disappointment for him. Sorry, news in Polish only:

    Kajto, the two-time European Rally Champion... didn't even receive nomination!
    Guys, do you remember my sad post from last year? Well, after Kajto won ERC for the third time something has finally changed. Kajto has been nominated for the prestigious "Sportsman of the Year" contest in Poland, for the first time in his career This competition is run by the sports newspaper Przegląd Sportowy since 1926 and is very popular here. Kajto is among 20 nominated sportsmen.

    The situation of Radomir Kupec is still very serious. His brother Karel Kupec decided to suspend his rally career

    Thierry Neuville got fifth place here in Belgium. Quite good in front of Chelsea football club star Eden Hazard..

    He was never likely to get nominated; too many rally fans live in a bubble. There are far more bigger and popular sports around.
