    Oh yes, I had completely forgot that. But 2010 is the only edition of Rally Finland I've missed since 1991 so that must be the reason

    The team are in negotiations at the moment, not helped by the delay before the World Motor Sport Council release the 2018 Sporting Regulations, due next week.

    Have you thought that maybe there's other factors affecting the popularity of rallying than just the format of the events? The 80's is over and won't return.

    Besides, 2017 saw a boost in the popularity of WRC and I'm pretty sure the reason is that it's not anymore just one driver and one team winning.

    Again, I would personally love to see longer rallies, but I also understand the financial challenges in that. How did they do it in the 80's then? Well, car industry isn't as wealthy today and having tobacco/alcohol sponsors must have helped as well.

    You could be right in some way. But the main reason is to expand the interest in rallying. Then it´s maybe increases to 20 millions profit. And enough for some other kaupunki to share.

    Prior comparable study on economic effects of Rally Finland were done in 2013. Then direct profit to Jyväskylä region were 14,7 m€, in 2017 it was 14,4 m€. I don't know how the study is made and the numbers are quite detailed in my opinion. Still, if Rally Finland and Jyväskylä want an increase in the numbers, some new tricks must be brought forth. Maybe those new tricks are named Esapekka, Teemu, Kalle and Jari.
