Which events were they referring to?
This is silly, the event organisers having to pay out even more money for this. Whats worse is the FIA dont seem to be very open to negotiations, they dont seem to give a toss.
Any news about next years rally GB? I guess this news and the move from Wales is all linked? I thought Mouton and co wanted to move the event to bring RAC type of stages back, I diddnt realise they were thinking of moving through no choice of their own!Ha'wey Hamilton, bring the WDC crown home and the beers are on me

Mikko Hirvonen has walked away from a big testing crash
Citroen factory driver Mikko Hirvonen and co-driver Jarmo Lehtinen have been involved in a high-speed rally testing accident in Italy.
The crash was caught on video with eyewitnesses just metres away from the DS3 WRC when it clipped a bank and rolled into a surrounding paddock in Tuscany.
Hirvoenen, who sits second in the championship behind team-mate Sebastien Loeb, was taken to hospital along with Lehtinen for tests but both have been given the all-clear.
The test was part of preparations for the upcoming Rally New Zealand and occurred just after lunch. Due to restrictions on testing for the long-haul rallies, only a pre-event shakedown is permitted on events such as New Zealand and Argentina.
“Mikko rolled a lot of times, the accident was high-speed,” said a Citroen spokesperson.
“The most important thing is that Mikko and Jarmo are both OK. They are back at the hotel tonight. The test is finished.”
Loeb completed his one-day test yesterday.
Rally New Zealand gets underway from Auckland on 21 June.

Tracking is not as expensive as you think, all organisers in NZ provide it as part of their their own mandatory requirements and it is easy to take a feed off it. If Kiwi's can do surely the remainder of the "Advanced" world can“It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts”

Juha Salo will drive Super 2000 car in Rally Finland and he will aim for the SWRC points. The car will be published 15th June, but it will be works team. It must be Proton, because the NORF is in their program and there is no sense to send Alister McRae to compete in Finland...
