    Good luck spreading spectators on Harju or the Kakaristo junction. Also I don't think there's going to be a discussion about how much each and every event could contribute to the spread of covid or not. It will be about a ban on travel and all sport events, on national levels or on European level. For Finland a final decision should be taken fist week of June. Still a month, a lot can change (for the better or for the worse). All we can do is wait and hope things turn out well.

    Spreading spectators would make it more dangerous. Its much easier to control people in designated spectator areas.

    Let´s assume that 2020 is cancelled.

    How do we know that January 2021 has better situation than August 2020 or October 2020 ?

    There is no cure for Corona until vaccines are ready maybe 2022.

    We just can´t wait for ever...

    I bet no one has right answer when to start.

    But it's much more difficult to stop people from spectating.
    You can easily close a stadium, but you can't close a whole region.

    I´d say in one way or another IF NRF will be driven, they have to adjust the itinerary anyway. No Harju and no Lajavuori, I´d reccon.

    On the rally you don´t have to stop people. Spectators manage this themselves, I´m sure.

    Finland could be postponed to September or October (weird, since the organizers have strongly talked against this).

    But if an accident happens, the organizers are responsible. That's why they want to manage it.

    Well, marshalls have to see there´s not more than 50 people around car then...

    I'm seriously talking about accidents involving spectators. We had this in a Finland national event in 2018. The victim was sitting on the outside of a corner, drunk, when a car crashed over. And the organizers are still in the court for that.
