    It's probably as simple as Adamo, being Italian, wanting to support a nice event in/near his homeland. Maybe he has friends on the rally organising team...? Rather like Malcolm Wilson taking Elfyn...

    I don't think they'd put the two 'fly away' rallies together at the end due to the gap required for logistics. They'd normally put a European round between them to fill the time gap. In this case I...

    And I think we all expected him to be much further away from the pack then he was, while we expected Pontus to be much closer.

    I was honestly surprised he picked to do GB in the WRC, he seemed a bit lost here last year and got beaten by Kalle. Hope he does well though, obviously.

    Indeed! I wonder whether he felt under appreciated by M-Sport? Maybe not though as he's still been retweeting M-Sport Fiesta stuff on Twitter recently. Quite a move to make, considering he stands a...

    It's not particularly special, but I do think it's interesting. I'm genuinely interested to see where Al-Attiyah stands in the Polo. I'm interested to see what Hirvonen does, though I admit I fear...

    Very impressive performance on Rali Bae Ceredigion by Osian Pryce, beating Tom Cave by 7.7s. Only Osian's second rally at all this season, first time in a R5 since 2017, driving a Hyundai that Cave...

    I presume it's being wholly funded by the Turkish state, particularly given who turned up last year.

    Good to see it confirmed that it was running to FIA compliant spec here. There have been questions over what restrictor they were running on past rallies.

    If it's going to Ireland or Northern Ireland it has to be tarmac. Anything else would be ridiculous. I doubt there is enough decent forest millage to host a WRC round anyway.

    They like people to be off the road an hour before the stage starts and are keen to enforce this. Regardless of that, at anytime they can be a bit funny about people walking straight onto the stage...
