    Doesn't seem to affect cycling's 3 Grand Tours; and wasn't a problem in the recent past.....Why not give it a go? Le Mans has it's practice & qualifying on Weds/ Thurs afternoon/ evening....not a problem.

    It is just a week per year. Here, in Fafe zone, employees had the week to follow the rally in the past.

    I was at Le Mans in 2016, the entire week, and I can say that the crowd numbers kept increasing as the weekend got closer. And by race day it was completely different story.
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.

    What would we gain by moving the rally out from the weekend?

    EDIT: added in the quote I was thinking of.

    Organizers of Rallye Monte Carlo preferred to organize it during the week in the IRC-years.

    More paying VIP audience, less beer drinking rally-fans. If rally ends saturday people can stay and have party in host city and go home in sunday, now when rally finish is sunday, you have to go work next morning.

    Why all "village" events are held in saturday if sunday is as good ?
    For television sunday is better but for live audience not.

    Maybe in Finland Pante... In Belgium almost all smaller events are held on sunday (recce and scrutineering on saturday). Some others are always held on a national holiday.

    National events here are very different, some on saturday, some saturday + sunday (Wallonie, Condroz) or friday evening + saturday (Spa, Ypres, Omloop van Vlaanderen).

    It's just fine that those events are held for weekend. Maybe some of us have jobs from mon-fri and this is perfect to attend or at least follow live... In my country all events are on friday and saturday, so always miss half the action.

    The original quote suggested a rally to be run from tuesday to friday. No saturday at all. Are you sure those paying VIP customers don't go to work on weekdays?
