    Not much tal about Croatia, it is said that the contract will be for 10 years which is incredible to believe in these times. What is known is that the rally will be based around Zagreb, the capital, and it will be an asphalt event. I reccon that roads used will be the ones used for INA Delta rally, the most famous Croatian rally.

    The roads are combination of Corsica, Alzace and Monte Carlo. Howeever, that can be adjusted in the recent months so I'm eager to find out about the itinerary and hoping for a bright future of the event.

    Ouuschhhh!!

    So what´s the discussion going on about new sponsors? Neste drop, their acting, decision etz?

    Personally I think Neste also gained very much their brand from the Finnish Jewel of motorsport.. don´t you think?

    Funny story; about 20-25 years ago, on 1st January, one of the UK daily newspapers had a calendar of sporting events for the coming year; this was when the WRC still had some mainstream exposure. Anyway the WRC calendar listed; Nestle Rally Finland - I assume the person proofreading thought Neste was a mistake, and added a 'l'.

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

    Wasn’t this already mentioned some months ago?

    Could it also be partly the same reason as rally Estonia lost shell for this year. It contradicted with the fact wolf being wrc supplier

    I can't see Wolf being a threat to these large companies.

    Indeed, I think in some countries, Wolf products are stocked within the larger company service stations!

    It was rumored some months/weeks ago, now it's officially announced.

    I think Wolf power stage was run already last year with no problems.

    Neste is trying to get a "green" profile with a renewable diesel and other things, motorsports doesn't fit in the picture. Also they had to lay off some staff from Finland just recently.

    "Some staff" could be well over 400. Negotiations not finished yet.

    I think problem with shell was that RE sponsor was Shell Helix - lubricant brand like Wolf not as fuel brand like Neste.

    if you really want, you can have one stage named Mobil1, another Neste, third Shell Helix, fourth Total ... and finally Wolf Power Stage.
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.
