    The obvious issue with these cross-border events are mainly legislative ones. It's hell of bureaucracy to go through even for an event placed in one department of one country. Every border, even internal department one makes it harder and harder.

    There aren't many cross-border events but there are some. In WRC Rally Sweden-Norway, in the past Poland-Lithuania. In other series Rally Ypres with stages in Belgium and France. There are likely more but it's still very very rare.

    Edit: Technically Rallye Monte Carlo is also a cross-border event of Monaco and France.

    Let's not dwell on the challenges, but think about the positives

    Rally Estonia is already situated quite close to the border, and behind the border Rally Alüksne wouldn't be far either.

    But you should think also about business issues. To organise a WRC event, you need to have big budget, support of local government or also country government. If we take for example Estonia and Latvia - which country should be first in the name of the rally? Where should be main base of the rally? How it will be with money from sponsors - latvian sponsors will go through latvian organisers company and estonian through estonian organisers company? Or both will go only through one company? And will be latvian organiser (and also government) interested in supporting event which main base is Estonia and all the money goes through estonian company? And there should be lot of similar issues...
