    The new engines (and probably the aero) wont be put into the Fiesta WRC until Monte Carlo 2021.
    Ryan has been reading Dirtfish. I posted the article two weeks ago and explained what's in it. Then you posted the same article a few days later, apparently without reading.

    yeah. at the moment in Italy is like everything rally-related is locked. but no-one can stop you to stroll in the woods. as in ERC Rome. Let's see if the control gets tighter in Sardinia...

    Higher Covid-19 cases are coming back in many parts of Europe. I wonder if WRC Sardinia and Ypres will actually go ahead.

    Ypres is probably at most risk of cancellation as Italy seems to be managing better and had rallies already.

    These rumours have been going on since August, lets see, if they really go through, with the economy already suffering.

    Unfortunately, the numbers have been escalating for several weeks, making Ypres move from early October to late November a risky decision; probably that's why Monza is now being oddly rumoured as the season finale (hope not; fingers crossed for Ypres!).

    I still don't know why they haven't moved it forward by 3 weeks to the end of October, the organizers said they were working on the itinerary for a long time, and didn't wait for the FIA to know whether or not they would be included in the calendar. It's beyond me why they haven't changed the date and besides, for the WRC to have another 2 month break after we already had 6 months with no rallies, can't do good to anyone, especially as November-December will be winter in Europe... Honestly the FIA needs to shake the dust off or else we'll see this championship die quickly, you already have M-Sport struggling and now with Hyundai having stopped paying their staff...it doesn't bode well for the future of our sport...
    If in doubt, flat out!
