    [WRC] Rally Japan

    Rally Guide 1 has just been released for Rally Japan 2020. It has been interesting looking that the choice of stages that they have selected. Nice way to spend a while, looking at the stages on Google Street View, where it is possible.

    It looks quite scenic. With a mix of tight, narrow mountain roads with some faster smoother sections to the east of Nagoya and Toyota.

    There are plenty of videos available on YouTube for SS9/14 Shinshiro City as it is a popular tourist driving road, Hongusan Skyline. It is a wide and free flowing stage, unlike some of the narrow twisting mountain roads.

    This video shows the road in rally direction, but starts at the exact road start, not at the SS start in the park just prior to the turnoff. The SS will finish just after the mass of radio towers near a large carpark.

    For a video at rally speed, this is the Shinshiro Rally that was held in March this year in the same area as the WRC Rally Japan. Although this All Japan Rally Championship event was a single day, much shorter stage length rally.

    Yes, this video is in Japanese only but it is still fun to watch.

    Unfortunately there has been some bad news from Japan. Many complaints have been received from the public about bad, reckless and unsafe driving along the intended rally route, since the publication of Rally Guide 1 for Rally Japan. I hope this does not lead to a falling out with the general public and the rally organisers, who have enough to contend with already without having to deal with irresponsible fans.


    ラリージャパン2020のルートにおける暴走行為に関して

    7月16日(木)にラリーガイド1を公表いたしましたが、その後、愛知県・岐阜県内のコースと推定される地 域において、危険な運転行為があったとの苦情が届いております。ラリージャパン運営事務局は、皆様がラリー ジャパンのコースを推定し、そのルートで道路交通法を無視した暴走行為、危険走行、または大音量を発生させ るといった、住民の皆様に多大なるご迷惑をおかけする行為があってはならないことだと考えております。こう したことが繰り返される場合、道路使用が許可されず、結果としてSS設定のキャンセルまたはラリージャパン の開催が不可能となることが予想されます。ラリージャパンの開催をお待ちいただいている皆様、そしてラリー ファンの皆様におかれましては、くれぐれもこうした行為をされないよう、心よりお願い申し上げ ます。

    Machine translation as follows


    Rally Japan 2020 route runaway
    We announced Rally Guide 1 on Thursday, July 16th, but since then, we have received complaints about dangerous driving behavior in areas estimated to be courses in Aichi and Gifu prefectures. The Rally Japan Administration Secretariat will cause a great deal of inconvenience to the residents, such as estimating the Rally Japan course and causing dangerous driving or generating a loud volume on the route due to runaway ignoring the Road Traffic Law. We believe that there should be no actions. If this is repeated, it is expected that road use will not be permitted, resulting in the inability to cancel the SS setting or hold Rally Japan. I would like to ask all of you who are waiting for the opening of Rally Japan, and all of the rally fans, to take this precaution.

    Also, like NZ and Australia - travel restrictions are in place.

    Japan aren't letting in foreigners easily.

    Rally Japan may be cancelled.
