    Let me try to explain little bit better maybe:
    1) TGR is attending to Rally Estonia with atleast 1 Yaris WRC (more is also possible)
    but
    2)Their drivers wants to attend AutoGlym because they think that those road suite better for NRF (Neste Rally Finland, not NORF)

    Money is not problem or logistics, they can run 2 rallies same time.

    Tänak can choose himself which event he will do, Estonia is his home but if he think that AutoGlym is more useful...

    (I do remember that last year Rally Estonia competitors got excellent results from NRF, much better than AutoGlym competitors)

    I hope to see wrc entries in both rallies. Hoping to make it to Estonia myself, but that seems bit unlikely at this time so seeing them closer to home would be really cool. Any rumours about any legends? Like Hirvonen?

    Hirvonen will do AutoGlym.
    but Eerik Pietarinen will start with Fabia EVO at Estonia, good benchmark for new Fiesta Mk8 R5

    maybe Tanak won't start Rally Estonia and they don't want to announce it cuz it's a killer for the ticket sales?

    This makes sense to me. But can't see why he wouldn't do it or wouldn't want to do it, so then again it doesn't. If Tommi says no he can just whisper MSpo.. and permission would be granted.

    It could be also interesting to see some of the other Estonian star drivers in Toyota, e.g. Märtin, Aava, etc or even someone from track side like Asmer, Pentus..

    Be realistic. Aava has his hands full organizing the event, noone is going to pay for some retired circuit-racers outing, atleast this kind of money and Märtin...well, most logical, but still would more likely see him in his Focus 03. I think Katsuta/Alonso are more probable.

    Like thought, they are going to announce Tänak in some interesting way, but they are going to announce him. Could read it from Aava`s this morning statement.

    Maybe Ivar Raidam or Vallo Soots? Why some guys have some strange fetish to spectate some really old or retired dudes is beyond me. I'd rather have some young guns like Kruuda, Volver, Šesks, or Torn any day instead of retired dudes.

    Breen also on the list according to Hyundai’s press release https://motorsport.hyundai.com/finland-crews-revealed/

    THis is just unbelievable guys. I know it’s not an official wrc event but all my life I have dreamed about a wrc round here and now it does happen.

    This is as close as it gets.


    Dreams come true sometimes. So happy at the moment.
