    Sad, but still the only possible decision.

    I suspect they will do something similar to F1 and have multiple events at 1 location if they need. Two, two day events should be possible in a single location.
    Germany and Wales are a long way off yet. I don’t know what the deadline to decide for Wales is, maybe end of September? Also it might be possible for Wales move back a bit date wise if the situation looks better for late November or something similar.
    I know NZ and Japan are long haul, but if the local situations regarding Covid restrictions allow the events to run, then why would they be off the table?

    F1 can run without fans as they have the TV money - WRC doesn't have that; so spectator ticketing is most events biggest revenue raiser. What events can manage without fans and still run? I doubt there are many.

    Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???

    Hope´s for Germany are not that high, local authorities on rally area are strongly against it.
    We will see.

    Everybody should just face it and admit, that the season is over and when the new one will start, is also a question. The time they plan to resume the season, will be the second wave (or hopefully just fear of it).

    Wait and see if the ERC Rally di Roma happens. If it can then others can too.

    WRC needs to get back into action asap or its profile will be gone and sponsors who have even tighter budgets next season will have moved on.
