    Well, the rule book says otherwise. And this is what's Millener's point, FIA should give waivers to the rule book to make the rallies happen.

    I don't think most people would have a problem with that; I think there is going to be a need for flexibility in all areas of life going forward.

    However, being slightly cynical - I can see suggestions of making events in future all 2 dayers......especially as a lot of Sundays have approx 40km of stages.

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

    Millener suggests more flexible event types in these exceptional times, such as two-day rallies or two consecutive rallies on the same location.
    Post #519, it is quite obvious that this is an solution to discuss.
    Now even more than then.

    Currently, Portugal and Sardegna were paired rallies and they are postponed. I can see that visiting Kenya is not so good idea and could still save a lot of costs for each team, at the same time, we have still more than 3 months till that time.
    So, if the situation gets under control, would it be possible to make these events in the middle of July? Portugal starts on Thursday and maybe ends on Saturday , while Sardegna should start on Friday morning with SD and can end on Sunday. Teams can travel directly from Porto to Sardegna and cars prepared like it was done last year in Argentina. Slightly shorter rally is also maybe less destructive for the car.

    We can have almost two full events and with much lower costs.

    If the flight industry is not starting immediately, the prices for hiring private planes is not very high right now and possibly it is the same after things start moving again. So, if there will be one private plane travelling between Porto and Sardegna, taking all team members from one place to another, it would be basically the same cost or much less than regular flights initially for all members from their home to Porto and then back home and then to Sardegna.

    Well, first we have to see how is the situation developing. Currently, I would say that it looks promising

    finally something good to hear.

    im sure bluuford has monitored the numbers more closely, im no specialist but ive also been following the last weeks, especially Italy, and the numbers have gone down thankfully now...two weeks ago the new case numbers were 5000-6000, last week around 4000 and now two days in a row its been 3000 something (3039 yesterday). Switzerland and Austria have also come down massively compared to some weeks ago.

    im not sure if there will be any rallies before Finland, but im pretty confident Finland will go ahead. Theres still 4 months left until that.

    We will see. The situation is not that bad in here as in other South European Countries (350 deaths and 13000 infected as of today), however, Rally Portugal was postponed from the May date to hopefully some date in late September or early October.

    Who claimed Portugal would run in May? It's postponed. We were speculating if it would run in July.

    didnt remember that it was postponed.
    imho it would be more safe to be organized at September.
    from what i read,borders are the last they will opened,from this gradually opening at each country.
    Lets hope also they will not rush this opening,and everything will go well.
