    5 months should be long enough. If the number of Covid cases/deaths continue to reduce in the next couple of months, all elite sports should be running again.

    With fans is another matter though. The Welsh wont even let people from England visit and just that relaxation could be weeks away.

    Motorsport News dated May 27 has a report that quotes Iain Campbell saying WRGB won't run without spectators. Ticket revenue is a significant part of the budget and without ticket sales to specatators there won't be an event.

    There are other WRC events due ahead of GB. Whichever way those rallies are run then Rally GB could be under pressure to do the same.

    The WRC will be desperate to have as many events as possible this year to make a 'proper Championship'. Wales dropping out wont go down well.

    Maybe the WRC promoter could help out with funding if Wales cant run without fans.

    It is nonsense to make rally without fans. You cannot manage that nobody will be there...

    Rallies with no fans are a British speciality! Though you're right, nowadays with the likes of Rally Maps and ewrc, ect, there's a lot of information that can be easily found by even a casual fan. It'd be very difficult to keep not inconsiderable numbers of spectators away now. Personally I don't think having people turn up is too much of a risk Convid 19 wise, but there could be traffic chaos without organisation/accommodation of parking.
