    Depends on many aspects, in some cases/regions it could work very well, in others...no chance.

    Several competitors at APRC Rally Hokkaido last weekend featured this sticker on their back window. I spoke with one senior rally person there who said there is concern about the lack of WRC experience of the Rally Japan Organsiers. A driver from that region told me that he doubted that any of the stages used by the candidate event would be suitable for WRC Cars! I believe that when the event is confirmed there will be a simultaneous announcement of all the important details of 2020 Rally Japan

    The summer break thing is interesting. The rumored calendar would have Chile move earlier in the calendar to be before Argentina, in the place where Corsica is dropped off. This would leave a full month between Argentina and Portugal, and then another month before Kenya. After that it would be again three week gaps, I suppose. Another option on this system would be to move Portugal and Sardegna earlier to make up one long summer break instead of two shorter ones.

    I liked the old summer break in the mid/late 90s. Acropolis was first weekend in June - then there was about a 6 week break until NZ towards the end of July.

    Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???

    From Rally New Zealand FB page: "We understand that the FIA will be announcing the 2020 World Rally Championship calendar tonight. Rally New Zealand is confident that it will be included on the WRC calendar for the first time since 2012.

    A positive result overnight would be an historic outcome for New Zealand and Motorsport in our country.

    After many years of lobbying to Bring Back WRC Rally New Zealand we are awaiting the announcement tonight with interest.

    Keep an eye on the social feeds after 10pm tonight. "

    Good to have it confirmed. Lacking another pure tarmac event earlier in the season but exciting new rallies and a return to NZ. Harsh on Spain.
