    I would say it isn't a relevant factor. The Cambrian Rally in the BRC is essentially a scaled down version of Wales Rally GB, even almost wholly consisting of forests/stages used by the latter later in the year.

    Finland will stay on beginning of August.

    Why not? Wales does with the Cambrian and Rally GB based in the same town

    Cambrian rally has been arranged since the 50's and Wales Rally GB is a descendant of the RAC rally. They have been organized separately for decades, so it's not a problem that they're based in the same area. Anyway, I'm not familiar with NI's rallies but I would except that it would have to be a major rally that they would transform to WRC level. But wouldn't they run a candidate run?

    No more Turkey.. shame as it's unique if you're there compare to the same old same old Portugal and other Gravel events...
    Apparently youíve miss this year revised Rally de Portugal, including the return of Arganil iconic stages. Anyway, having NZ back will certainly be great for the WRC but itís too early to tell how much events like the new Safari, Japan and even NI will help to improve the series.

    I mean what would I know...only living with 20 miles of the stages, competing on the Cambrian 15 or so times...

    I think you've taken what he's saying the wrong way.

    Any WRC rally in Northern Ireland would be organised by Motorsport UK's Events Team (formally known as IMS), the same organiser behind Rally GB. While I can't think of any precedent where an event has changed so dramatically, I doubt they'll be required to run a candidate rally, as it'll essentially be a continuation of Rally GB with the organiser having proven themselves there. They may well be assisted by people from the Northern Ireland Motor Club (who organise the Ulster Rally) or Ulster Automobile Club (who organised the Circuit of Ireland and continue to organise the UAC Easter Stages in its place), but I imagine Motorsport UK will wish to retain full control of the event.

    Of course I might be wrong in this. Maybe the organisation of Wales Rally GB could be just moved over to NI to form a new WRC rally from scratch. Just assuming things here

    What a crock of shit.
    Stop referring to England, Scotland & Wales as the "Mainland", no need to get political here, you swear Ireland was the size of the Isle of Wight the way your talking, btw the rotation idea is a brilliant one at that, nice to mix it up a bit, don't need to be so stuck in your ways T16!

    Apologies, didnít mean to offend with my use of mainland.
    It doesnít matter to me what size Ireland is, it just makes it much more of a trek and chew on getting there.
    As for being stuck in my ways... each to their own I guess. Have Ireland as a separate event, but please donít take away the mud and the forests of rally GB.
