    And the saga continues...
    EAL (estonian autosport governing body) announced that Rally Estonia has been misinforming the public and things are not so as they seem. Blaming that they receive very small proportion of governing support (90000 Ä vs. 980000 Ä) and throwing some other facts on to the table which in further investigation were not true at all.

    Today Tallink (biggest shipping company on Baltic Sea) announced that they will withdraw their support from EAL and continue with Rally Estonia only.

    For EAL this now getting very bad publicity as even our Parlament is today discussing this feud.

    And now Oleg Gross has released a statement that he will personally pay the 100 000 Ä fee for Rally Estonia.


    Crazy world were living in....

    Crazy opera. Today at 2 (Estonian time) will be a press conference held by Rally Estonia. Anyone who knows Estonian or just want to watch here is the link

    https://sport.delfi.ee/news/auto/wrc...si?id=89052911

    This is like crazy thing that is happening. I think we only know about quarter, maybe half of the things. There has to be something more behind it, why such moves were made. And I think RE gave some kind of ultimatum, so mr Gross had to do it to save Estonian Autosport Union?

    Anyway... will update soon about the press conference.

    I really would like to know the real reasons behind it.

    What a bad publicity for our motorsport and country.

    Reading all the available information, I cannot see how the board of EAL can continue after today. I would expect them to step back today or during the week at the latest. This is nonsence what is going on right now.

    How convenient that Oleg Gross made just an hour before Rally Estonia press conference a statement that he will personally pay for the fee.

    Isn't he part of the group that proposed the fee?!

    How ludicrous...
