    One rumor said that NEP Finland is too busy with Tokyo olympics during Rally Finland’s weekend so the rally must be moved

    Luckily that is only a rumor. NEP faced that 'problem' already long time ago as those two events clashed already on 2020 calendar. They have had ca. 1,5 years to solve this matter.

    The 70th anniversary of Rally Finland has been given a new date.
    The iconic gravel road fixture will now form the 10th round of the FIA World Rally Championship on 30 September - 3 October after moving back two months from its original 29 July - 1 August slot.

    The country has already given us Arctic Rally Finland in 2021, and did so at short notice replacing Sweden.

    How come normal Rally Finland cant run on the same basis. Couldnt a sponsor be found to also allow it to run without fans ?

    It´s a totally different situation. In Central Finland it would be very difficult to prevent the massive amount of spectators to come and watch if there still be some restrictions. In Rovaniemi it was easy, because a lot of snow and almost no houses at all in the area where the stages were located.

    Yes and no.

    Winter Rally had no access roads to stages.

    Winter had only 1 different stage in Friday and Sunday.

    Winter rally was held 7-10h drive from big cities where most people live, Jyväskylä is 1-3h drive from those.

    So keeping spectators out from Jyväskylä is 100 harder (and more expensive)

    Also cost of making Summer Jyväskylä is 5x more than Arctic.


    Another thing:
    FIA requested this move because looks like Rally Estonia probably needs that slot where Finland was planned. And for weather (road conditions) reasons Estonia can´t be in September-October weekend.
    But our Estonian members know way more about Estonia "C19" situation.
