    Service parking is taking place.

    As the president was planned to arrive last year, a small field beside the service park was used for his 3 black hawk helicopters as landing zone, it was ashphalted the day before (!). Iím guessing that itíll be used as media parking this year if not then it was torn apart back to normal for the community haha

    28 cars is on the entrylist.

    Are organisers getting a lot of money from FIA to arrange a ERC rally, or are they normally sponsor financed.
    I hope the entry fee from competitors is a minor percentage in their budget...

    so finally a rallying week...

    Honestly dont know what to expect. Last year Neuville and Ogier were very strong pacewise until their problems, Toyotas really struggled on Friday but were better on next days. Like we saw last year with Ott, that you have to just mind your own pace and business on this rally and you could get a very good result.

    Friday will be a crucial day with more than half of the rally distance covered.

    I presume it's being wholly funded by the Turkish state, particularly given who turned up last year.

    Last year Toyotas were really struggling with the grip. Remember how everyone expected them to fail miserably on suspension and radiator damages based on what happened in Portugal and Sardegna? Maybe they had played it safe with suspension setups compromising the performance? Also, Ogier and Neuville drove at absolute maximum and you could wonder if that was too much for their cars? Or do I remember correctly that Neuville's issue was a mistake by a mechanic? or Mikkelsen's?

    In addition to Friday being the longest day, it's also the roughest, at least based on reports from last year. Obviously things could have changed for this year with roads repaired after the rally or deteriorated by weather etc. The only truly rough parts on Saturday are only parts on the Datca stage, and on Sunday only single passages on each stage.
