    You can actually make quite a lot of different variations from the roads there in the military area. Is it WRC rallying, that is another question.

    Why wouldn't it be worthy of WRC rallying? Those roads are epic.

    Honestly I think they're quite boring, with a lot of straights and junctions. There are only a few interesting parts there. The vineyard stages are much more interesting imo, but there you cannot keep the spectators away.

    If this is happening, the promotor better makes sure WRC+ is properly working, unlike every Monte Carlo Rally...

    I was there last year. Loved panzerplatte, of course I was in a very high speed section. Junctions are inevitable there, because there is a massive road network.

    I have been racing in Rally Deutschland six times... Panzerplatte is enough to do it under these circumstances... great challenge.

    Think they need to announce as quickly as possible if spectators will be barred in Germany to stop people making plans to travel. Having said that with the virus said to prefer cold wet conditions it is hard to avoid the fact that we may be back in lockdowns/flight bans by then.

    I haven't been to Rally Deutschland let alone raced there but I've analyzed the onboards closely for my blog and I would say Baumholder has the most of fast-flowing, drivable corners of the whole rally. In some of these corners you even go sideways because the rugged surface has low grip. Meanwhile, the vineyard and countryside stages consist mostly of just straights, flat corners, 90° turns, hairpins and chicanes - all of which feature on Baumholder of course as well.

    I wouldn't mind having Rally Deutschland solely in Baumholder, although it would surely change its character.

    I've been thinking for a while that their best hope of running the rally and avoiding issues with crowds would be to run it at Baumholder with all access closed off, but I thought I read somewhere that the organisers needed the money from ticket sales to make it financially viable? So if this does happen, they must need more sponsors money or maybe cut a deal with WRC promoter to reduce the fee they have to pay?

    Imagine... three days of the same Camera angles from the one location of stages... wonder if RBMH/Promoter will move the camera's around each day...
