    [WRC] Rally Turkey 2020

    https://www.rally-maps.com/Rally-Turkey-2020

    Rally Turkey is also driven in a shortened format. Friday morning shakedown, two proper stages on Friday evening. Saturday is like last year with the fast Kizlan stage, Sunday holds two passes over the longest and roughest stage of the rally, Cetibeli, and the Marmaris power stage, with a service in between. 12 stages, 223 km. No super special.

    Only three Turkish drivers this year? Have to see how many there were in 2019!

    Chris Ingram had planned to do Turkey but has decided to miss it now. He was complaining about the ban on fans, so maybe this situation wasnt good for his sponsors.

    So, any speculations? Neuville will start fifth and he has been strong in the past, although has always failed on the Yesilbelde stage.

    I would also expect a good result from Loeb with a good road position. He has also had a decent gravel pace in the new generation cars, although he hasn't driven anything near this level of roughness in them. The closest probably was Mexico or the gravel stages in Catalunya, and he was leading Mexico in 2018 and Catalunya in 2019 after gravel stages.

    Will the M-Sport cars do better now that the engine performance is not so crucial? Last year Suninen put down a solid performance although never won stages.

    Will the Toyotas make it to the finish in one piece?

    I’m wondering if we can expect team orders for Hyundai and Toyota drivers...Rovanpera and Neuville will have a very good start position, and could (like Lappi last year) build a strong lead at the end of day 1.
