    WRC Calendar 2020

    This week could give us the answer of next years calendar. So comments before under and after we have it?

    Finland two weeks later?

    Germany stays and Turkey leaves would be my guess.

    Japan replaces essentially Corsica as a tarmac round and Kenya replaces Turkey as a rough rally, keeping the overall structure equal to this year. However, with Spain becoming a full tarmac round the amount of tarmac is increased. This assuming that the Northern Ireland tarmac rally won't happen...

    Corsica out Japan in. No need to encourage the French to have a round on the mainland (FIA dont consider the Monte a French rally) after 2020 as Ogier will have retired
    Turkey out and Kenya in as enough "hospitality" has been thrown at the FIA by the Africans
    Germany to stay as means the Belgians can get to a round relatively easily
    GB to stay in Wales as Brexit and funding implications there of will mean not enough state money in NI for a while
    Spain full tarmac and the return of Viladrau hairpin
    NZ and Australia to announce rotation as the FIA will want to ride on the back of Paddon's popularity down under assuming he can get a seat!

    That's my guess!

    Sal the 2nd has it right, The problems of a 'hard border' in the island of Ireland if Brexit goes ahead and the absence of a functioning local administration mean that there is no way NI can take the GB round. If they wait long enough there will just be one country to apply for resurrection of Rally Ireland as a competitor to GB for an autumn round in the calendar.
    Kris Meeke got fired -PSG so terrified they quit!

    I guess their changes depend on the ambition of WRC Promoter, whose job it is to propose it....
