    Those who have backed moving Rally GB from Wales to Northern Ireland include current WRC points leader Elfyn Evans, nine-time world champion Sebastien Loeb and Irishman Craig Breen.

    "I really think that it needs to be here," said Breen.

    "We definitely have so much to offer: the fans, the environment and more importantly we have the stages - the roads are out of this world."

    Evans + Ogier at the Hemicuda Rally to prepare for Ypres


    The Ypres Rally Belgium, which won its place in the world rally championship this year, to overcome the many cancellations following the Coronavirus health crisis, has special stages which are still unknown for many WRC drivers. To overcome this lack of driving and knowledge of the terrain, Toyota Gazoo Racing has decided to send two of these drivers at the end of the month to the Hemicuda Rally in Koekelare.

    On the weekend of 24-25 October, current WRC driver championship leader Elfyn Evans will be there accompanied by Sébastien Ogier both at the wheel of their respective Toyota Yaris WRCs.

    I hope Dirtfish and the other naysayers are proved wrong and N.Ireland can rescue Rally GB and British rallying from the abyss.

    As those great N.Irishmen the Undertones once sang, "I need excitement and I need it bad - and it's the best I ever had."...

    Along with the two factory Toyota Yaris WRC’s, Hyundai’s WRC2 drivers Ole Christian Veiby and Nikolay Gryazin will both also contest the Hermicuda Rally next weekend (October 24-25), as will Hyundai junior Greégoire Munster.

    I don't have a problem with Norn Iron having a WRC round; in fact I'm sure they'll put on a great show - but it ain't Rally of GB.....

    My problem is that Rally GB (and many other WRC events) have been run for the last 10+ years exclusively for the benefit of the WRC......when most of it's history is before/outside the WRC. In a perfect world, the event would take place whether in the WRC, or not.

    Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???

    While it would be great to see NI get a round, it will be a loss to the WRC not have Wales and the challenge it presents. There are no other rallies like it in the championship.

    I also like Wales very much. At least there's Chile again in 2021

    Neste won't be the main sponsor of Finland's WRC event anymore, after 26 years of co-operation.
