    So possibly no Tarmac round until the last few months of the season? Germany will be wet hell in October as well.

    Number of competitors is not important for them...

    Thing is the calendar is close to being really good in my eyes, which is annoying;

    >Nice split between fly away events and European rounds.
    >Classics such as Monte/Sweden/Argentina/Finland/ GB and a return for an old favourite like New Zealand.
    >New events in Japan and Kenya, which will be exciting to add to Chile which joined this year and had great roads.

    Changes I'd make would be to change Sardinia for a tarmac round on the mainland, or another tarmac round elsewhere in europe. Would also have Spain (full tarmac like was planned) over Turkey, and move Japan before GB and go back to having the finale of the season in the muddy, rain soaked forests.

    Sardegna does nothing for me as a rally. Italian tarmac, however, I'd love that in the WRC calendar.

    Totally agree with you.

    this would DO for me (although i would swap Kenya for Estonia or Poland but thats not realistic)

    Monte Carlo
    Sweden
    Mexico
    Argentina
    Chile
    Portugal
    Spain (full tarmac)
    Kenya
    Germany
    Finland
    New Zealand
    Japan
    GB

    Dropping Spain for Germany disappointing. Germany in October not be as pleasant to spectate as Salou.

    Germany is way more spectacular than Spain imo. And unlike most of the guys here, I'm happy that Turkey stays. Along with Kenya, they are gonna be the most challenging rallies of the calendar.

    Not anything official, so obviously do take this with a grain of salt: https://www.rallye-magazin.de/wrc/ar...schland-42021/

    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.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    I don't think they'd put the two 'fly away' rallies together at the end due to the gap required for logistics. They'd normally put a European round between them to fill the time gap. In this case I could see GB between them.
