    Again, it's just speculations at this point, too early to tell, hopefully we'll know before October the 4th.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    Germany could move to middle of October, and the calendar will then follow to NZ & Japan to close the season, so:

    Monte Carlo, Sweden, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Portugal, Sardinia, Kenya, Finland, Turkey, Wales, Germany, New Zealand and Japan.

    Again, only speculations, hopefully we'll find out soon enough.
    So with this do we expect Finland to keep same date after summer break instead of moving to end of August as first thought?

    And wouldn't Japan be somw kind od copy of Monte Carlo at that time of year? It would be a real roller coaster to finish the season on a rally like that.

    I don't agree with that, the landscape and history in Spain makes it special in it's self, i got a buz just driving the road sections!
    From what I've heard Germany is one of the worst events to spectate.

    I have to agree here , I've been to both and Spain is way above Germany in my book , but everyone is entitled to an opinion.

    Its just a rotation for one year as I understood, that gives Spain time to settle a proper tarmac event for 21.

    Went to Germany this year. Awesome experience, and had no trouble with spectating. Also a very good itineary, 14 out of 19 stages were possible to watch.

    I respectfully disagree, went to the event this time, was pretty special, very nice to spectate and a very very good atmosphere. Enjoyed it immensely, would nice to see it in October with more mixed conditions as this time was summer sunny only. Then again, haven't seen Catalunya yet unfortunately.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    apparently latest edition of France's AutoHebdo magazine has an interview with Yves Matton that includes some discussion about rotation of events in WRC for future years. Has anyone seen it and could they provide a summary of what is written.

    If demand is bigger than supply then rotation is the only possibility. So did it work last time out? Probably not, but maybe the "Estonian concept" could be replicated for the events without official Championship status?
