    What do you thinks is the chance of it becoming a regular WRC event?

    Just out of curiosity, how did it work with the spectator restrictions? Was there any chance to spectate "illegally" (either without ticket, or outside the desiganted spectator area)? To me it seems almost impossible to close and control all of the access roads to the stages. On WRC Live I've seen several smaller groups of people in the middle of the forests, so perhaps these people were "extra" above the 16000 tickets?

    I watched online too and looked like there were very little spectators outside the spectator areas.

    In comparison to 'normal' wrc events, watching wrc+ onboards its looked like rally going through 'desert' ... ok, there were few spectators outside zones, but very few if you compare with any onboard from the past.

    Organizers did good job to hold any unwanted people out - there was a bunch of guys with dirt bikes who scanned the areas day and night and lot of surveillance personell and equipment (helis and drones) from police and border guard.

    Organisers have indicated that they found some people that were ignoring those restrictions but they all were escorted out of the area with no bigger incidents. Those scattered groups of people that were visible from the live feed was most likely locals who live around the stages and their visitors or accredited media personnel. Afaik every local inside the perimeter was contacted and they had an opportunity to register some friends and family members who got access to the stages while the event was running.

    Edit: While scrolling Instagram I found this account of one of the bike guys. You can get a glimpse of the job they did + one good video about a disguised camper van that they found: https://www.instagram.com/stories/hi...1128886782326/

    really hard to say, i doubt it but Aavas dream to have it every two years should be possible i think.

    found this from twitter:

    "A long time member of the FIA said that Rally Estonia was the best WRC event of all time. The FIA implied that finally someone understood - we live in 2020, not 1978."

    Quotes from Tarmo Hõbe, one of the main men behind RE.


    i guess with this is meant the technical solutions and stuff like that.

    E: btw, the Rally Estonia crew is also helping Ypres rally organizers.

    Adamo: "Thierry Neuville deserves to be World Champion, he goes fast everywhere"

    2192/5000
    "What does Ott bring us? One more victory !, smiled Andrea Adamo at the microphone of Olivier Gaspard, RTBF's special envoy in Estonia. He brings us more than that obviously, because he has not signed with us for a piece of bread! All the drivers who work with us bring something. He has the experience of having driven cars from other manufacturers (the Ford Fiesta WRC and the Toyota Yaris WRC, editor's note), and when you have in your team the technical experience of two guys like Thierry and Ott who work together, in the same direction, it is very precious. If we had two idiots who fight and who do not say things to each other, It would be different! For me, our team's season has changed in Mexico, where on Sunday we did a very long debriefing of ... six hours, I think. We put everything on the table, we got together. telling all our truths, we made a list of everything that needed to change from a technical point of view on the car. "

    The Italian boss of the Hyundai team also returned to the weekend of Thierry Neuville, in a fight for the podium before being thrown out of the line in a bend that had widened, tearing a wheel and to abandon. A disaster in the race for the world title?

    "For me, a disaster is something else, it's the Covid-19 pandemic, underlined Andrea Adamo. Thierry had a difficult weekend, it's one thing, a disaster, it's another thing. In Turkey, he will have a favorable starting position, because the sweep will be important. I remind you that we are here above all to win the Constructors' World Championship, and he was the fundamental person last year. to allow us to win it. He is going all out for that. For me, Thierry, he is top. He demonstrated again this weekend that when he has a car that allows him to go fast on roads like in Estonia or Finland, he can fight. He was third, next to the others! I will tell him again: he deserves to win the World Championship, because he goes fast everywhere. "
