    But if whole Friday and Sunday are just Monza rallyshow on the circuit, it sucks...

    What Matton is likely thinking:
    “In the current situation, we’re so desperate to get 7 events that ACI Rally Monza Italia was the last resource, after blowing chances to run proper events and change Ypres date. Probably we’ll have to stick to the Monza circuit stages, as more traditional rally stages in the nearby countryside will probably be cancelled"
    That's sad.

    Not a fan at all of the prospect of a WRC round at Monza but I can see why the FIA have pushed ahead with it to give them a greater chance of 7 rounds and a valid championship according to the rules.

    I wonder if the Monza orgnaisers really screwed the FIA to the floor on pricing the event - all the negotiating leverage they could have hoped for!

    But I really hope that a side effect is not the false notion that this type of event is an acceptable format for a WRC round going forward when more normal global conditions resume.

    looks like a Thursday night super special. Given the circumstances, I wouldn't mind them doing a stage like this every night, even twice every night, but the rally must have more than that.

    I hope they will come up with something resembling the old Donington or Oulton Park stages of RAC, or something of the Szilvester Rally in Hungary:

    We have had a spa rally here in belgium, where none of the actual circuit track was used. Only acces and service roads.

    But the terrain at spa is huge, its basically just a forest. I don't know how the situation in monza is, if they have such possibilities.

    For me, including Monza into WRC is a joke...

    nobody hardcore fun will like it.
    But...this year due to pandemic is a different story,and imho we need it.Maybe its the only way to run an extra round with safety due to covid.We have to remember that the situation with covid after 2-3 months in totally unknown,and the risk to dont run rallies at all is not low....
    If they manage to run and 6-8 stages nearby with proper stages,will not be so bad.
    It would be better than nothing.

    Track racing is a Big joke to WRC, but only thing to wait for, is the settings of cars for full track/tarmac mode..

    Could somehow draw lines with proper rally Kenya.. absolutely different gear ratios/transmissions + max low ride heights..
