    Exactly - smaller. For regular national events Sunday is not good. Rally ends in evening, then parc ferme, awrds, so crews has to pack their stuff, load cars in almost midnight, and drive home all night. That's why almost all rallies in northern Europe is on Saturday, sometimes Friday/Saturday. Belgium is quite small, but has many regional events, so there that problem isn't big, but for example there is Saaremaa rally, and crews go there from all neighbor countries, drive from Saaremaa to home 600 or 800 km on Sunday night and then go to work in Monday would be insane for crews, mechanics, spectators.

    Here's press release: http://www.nesterallyfinland.fi/en/i...act-published/

    I'm not sure whether the study is (yet) fully public or is there an English version too. I can ask, because I find this interesting too.

    If your VIPs are related to sponsors and companies then in theory it's better to target them during the week. For us spectators we give up our weekends to watch rallying. But when you're being invited there and you have no interest it's still work at the end of the day.

    I don't think Mahonen was referencing 'paying' VIPs - whatever they are.

    I only know facts about Rally Finland.

    Thursday which have only SSS1 Harju had more VIP events than final day Sunday with 4 stages and one of those was very interesting PowerStage.

    Also normal ticket sales is bigger in thursday than sunday.

    Maybe it has something to do with one stage being in the city and others in the woods. Also, if Ouninpohja had been on Sunday, I'm sure the VIP tents would have been packed.

    Probably some crazy idea in order to slowly introduce electrical cars. Or a reference to modern cars reliability.
