    Matt, be more optimistic. Still a long time to go till the event is supposed to run next year.
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.

    There was a bus bombing in Izmir of prison guards back in August. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-t...-idUSKCN1BB0HU
    Izmir is 260 km from Marmaris where the world rally is to be held.
    The reality in travelling to most countries is you are more likely to be involved in a traffic accident, or local everyday thugs, camera/ thieves, pick pockets etc than a terrorist incident.

    Wow, I'm super disappointed. I was one of Rally Turkey's biggest defenders, but a recent article on WRC.com just stated that after a Friday ceremonial start only 13 stages would be run on days two and day three. What kind of shit Corsican rally is this?!

    This is absolutely true. If I would travel to Turkey I wouldn't fear a terrorist attack. These happen very rarely. But what I would fear is that I get imprisoned arbitrarily. You never know which reason they find to arrest you. Moreover, the question arises if a country should get a WRC round when its president acts like a dictator and doesn't care about human rights (same question with China last year).

    Its FIA Balkan Trophy and national champ by this year 200km stages and 600km total. They will have a WRC event next year, that doesnt mean they have to have all ready now. But plans and planned stages are wonderful, you might even get a jeep safari or boat trip to the spectator points near the beaches. We are here since 4 days and feel very welcome and safe

    exactly. WRC rallies have a minimum length of 300 kms, but rallies of national level or other international series are rarely that long.
