    I think it would be too hot and too great a fire risk for either Portugal or Italy to run before late September. They perhaps need to wait to hope that NZ is cancelled early and try to rearrange to some slots after Finland. If Finland runs....

    During Rally Mexico (one month ago) I said that I'm positively surprised if there's any WRC rallies run this year, and I still think the same. Of course I hope it will get better, but right now it doesn't look good.

    We may not see another WRC Rally NZ, whereas Portugal and Sardinia will most likely be back for 2021

    At least for us fire season will be over... Kind off, we had the biggest fire of the last 3 decades in late October few years ago. But I don't think it'll be the fire hazard to stop the rally. I don't see it reduced to two days though. ACP, the organizer relays heavily on the money from the regions where it passes. Cutting a day could mean losing money not only this year but in future years as well.

    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.
    You’re not being cynical, you’re being realistic. After the radical rule limiting 2 engines per car/season it won’t take long to see 2 days events becoming the future normal routes.

    Btw, 2 days seems appropriate for the rest of the season considering the current crisis, but making 2 events in the same country sounds a desperate solution. Hope it won’t be needed.

    I can't see any country putting up two rallies anymore for this year. It would take too much effort, and right now it's a gamble whether the rallies are run at all, so they don't want to raise the stakes. At most the second event would be a mini-rally.

    However, doing two short events back to back in same or two countries close to each other, are valid ideas for the future.
