    [WRC] Tour de Corse 2019

    https://www.rally-maps.com/Tour-de-Corse-2019

    The route is out, quite much new again compared to last year, only two stages have remained. Friday driven in the South end of the island, Saturday at North-West near Bastia and Sunday at Nort-East near Calvi (for the first time since 2013). And stage count is now up to 14!

    Bonato, maybe Gryazin and especially Ciamin I would find more interesting for Corsica than Veiby or Katsuta.

    WRC2 Pro very weak though.. no Kopecky, Greensmith, Ostberg. I thought European rounds would be better at least.

    This WRC2Pro turned out to be a real joke...

    Andolfi was strong last year there.
    Now back to Hyundai, I don't know if he will be able to be as fast.

    Kajetanowicz is testing his new car with BRR in Austria. Tour de Corse will be his debut.

    FIA Rule says that WRC2 numbers start from 41-
    MC and Corsica have their own rules, Sweden and Mexico have used FIA rule.

    Yes it is weird that these things seem to happen every year, and it is either Monte or Corsica (or both).

    Talking about numbers, I still dislike the permanent numbers for WRC crews - this idea works fine with F1 or other series that have a very limited number of participants, but not at all with WRC. It is made even weirder with the numbering rules for WRC2 and JWRC, where the numbers start from 21 and 41 (or 71 for some french reason) but if some permanent WRC crew (like Evans) has a number in the middle of these brackets, this number is skipped over.

    Also are the permanent WRC numbers always "frozen", even if the crew is not taking part in a certain rally? I noticed that for Corsica Bertelli's permanent number 37 is used by Solans in WRC2, but Mikkelsen's number 89 is not used, it is skipped over - typical FIA "logic". Also, what constitutes a permanent number - a single entry in WRC in one rally and you can lock that number down? For how long? Idiotic system.

    I truly hope that most of the drivers in WRC will continue to choose small (2-20) numbers in general, so that entry lists don't become totally unreadable. Or that the whole system is ditched in couple of seasons time.

    Or alternatively, 'stupid' that they can't all do what they want.
