    If they manage to run and 6-8 stages nearby with proper stages,will not be so bad.
    It would be better than nothing.
    TBH i was struggling to take this year's WRC seriously with the lack of events, especially some iconic ones and also a lack of tarmac events, so adding one more event, wherever it is, does make the season feel a little more complete. WRC was damn lucky it squeezed in three events before lockdown though.

    Basically, WRC could degraded into something like BTRDA Circuit Rally Championship if Monza is a "success"..

    2020 is a year like no other, and so having a WRC rally like no other is just part of the territory.

    Monza may not be traditional but tarmac is tarmac and although it will look different to a normal tarmac rally it will still be a real test of driving.

    We should be grateful to Italy for getting another event organised at short notice and we could be more so if Ypres gets cancelled.

    The 2021 Calendar is out and hasnt gone to 'Circuit-based' events, so just accept Monza 2020 as a one-off. It could be fun.

    NASCAR is also a test of driving, yet it's not exactly same driving as a rally stage.

    Eddie can’t even tell the difference between the 16 and 17 cars, so you’re probably correct not to trust his opinion on whether Monza will be ‘a real test of driving’ or not.

    Guessing this won't surprise anyone at this point.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    If not, they could indeed crown a world champion.

    I think it’s fair enough. They’ve all had the same crack at it.
    Ok, any less and I might not think the same.
    If Elfyn Evans, son of that absolute legend, Gwyndaf, is world champion at the end of six, seven or eight rounds I will be absolutely ecstatic regardless.
