    According to the organizers the rally will run with or without spectators. Today decisions about all sports events will be made. It's likely Ypres will run without spectators, if the local government still allows it. The main issue for running a rally is that a lot of paramedics are needed.

    @colmcklein:

    I just can’t see how traipsing across the whole of Belgium for half a day in the Ardennes makes much sense now, with what’s currently going in the country. Just stay in Flanders, where the Covid infection rates are low.

    Based on this infographic, I wouldn't exactly use the term "low". They are lower than in other areas, but far from what you'd call low. But then again compared to 1000-3500, 100-200 is low.
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.

    Of course all things are relative.

    Roughly 350-400/100.000 in the region of the Hemicuda Rally, roughly 700 /100.000 in the region of the South Belgian Rally. It's not so black and white indeed.

    Entries closed almost a week ago. Always nice to see how the rules don't apply to the big boys.

    Anyway, so that's factory 4 wrc cars in a small local rally.
    What do we even need ypres for? We just need neuville and rovanperra and we can decide the championship here.

    Belgian government announced measures for all sports. Regarding professional sport : they can go ahead, but without public. This will be for a month at least, possibly more.

    For #WRC Ypres, most probably without public I would think because of uncertainty after 4 weeks.

    Professional sports indeed without spectators, until November 19 so far. Ypres starts on November 20, but it's very likely that these measures will be prolonged. Also I'm afraid the preparation event this weekend (Hemicuda Rally) is to be cancelled, it's a bit unclear, but I think it counts for "amateur sports" and those are forbidden now.
