    The WRC Calendar is expected to be expanded to 16 events from the current 13. In order to keep the costs down, Kaj Lindstrm from Toyota Gazoo Racing suggests that the rallies would start on Friday morning with shakedown, with then the actual driving continuing until late night.

    I still have a hard time believing cutting one day from each rally would equal the cost of traveling to three new rallies...
    Yeah me too. However, driving until late night does soften the blow for cutting off a day somewhat for me.

    I wonder which are the extra 3 events. I have heard about Kenya, Croatia, a latin american country? Any chance for Acropolis in the near future?

    Shame this technology is not exciting for spectators.

    Its like beating a dead horse, we all know electric cars will have a important part in the future of everyday mobility but its share on motorsport will remain small for decades.

    Just like diesel, it was the n1 choice for every segment on several markets around the world for the last decade and its share on motorsport was insignificant, the only good effort was curiously also a VAG effort in Dakar with the Diesel Touaregs.

    You are forgetting the Audi diesel Le Mans prototypes.
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.

    You miss the point. Diesel didnt need promotion by motorsport, it was massive already (and boosted by Govts pushing it as 'clean' due to CO2 targets).

    Electric needs all the help it can get...
