    110% it is going to be tarmac - if it is indeed in NI.

    Yeah that's the problem plenty of forest but no decent length stages available

    I get it and it sounds amazing, I will make the trip one day, but in this case, I just want the Rally GB (the RAC to me) to be in a muddy forest, somewhere i donít need to get a ferry.

    Perhaps such a calendar shake up is what the sport needs. Ending in Ireland... why not!

    No more Turkey.. shame as it's unique if you're there compare to the same old same old Portugal and other Gravel events...

    Bringing back NZ is great. When Canada comes back if it does that'll be great too. Start a year with Monte and Sweden... then end it with Canada and Ireland!

    This sounds good... but a pity they couldnt move Rally GB to Scotland for 2020. That would be a proper way to commemorate Colin's World Championship win.

    Motorsport UK has officially announced the British Championship calendar with "Wales Rally GB Ė Date TBC" listed as a reserve round. You surely have to presume that they know where they're going to hold their own event.

    If they decide to take it to Ireland, will they have enough time between now and when itís scheduled to run? I would have thought that it would have been set in stone by now.

    Rumour on the AR podcast that Rally GB is in Wales for another year before going to N.Ireland in 2021...

    Particularly when the British Championship Manager and Rally GB Clerk of the Course are the same person....

    BRC also announced Ulster Rally to be run 22th of August. That's the date where Rally Finland is supposed to go. Also it's probably unlikely that NI would host separate BRC and WRC events?
