    Exactly....the level's of incompetence from the FIA this year (and the promoter) is beyond anything...I'm not for a minute suggesting they have an easy job to do, but there's a reason why they're sitting there and it's not just to keep their seats warm...
    If in doubt, flat out!

    I’d bet on a tarmac event in Ireland, otherwise we’d have too many gravel events.

    At long last they've announced it officially FIA World Rally Championship: https://www.fia.com/news/fia-announc...l-decisions-19

    The 2021 FIA World Rally Championship calendar has been approved with 12 events including nine in Europe and three long-haul rallies. The calendar has been created against the backdrop of the unprecedented challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

    24 January 2021 Monte Carlo
    14 February 2021 Sweden
    25 April 2021 Croatia
    23 May 2021 Portugal
    6 June 2021 Italy
    27 June 2021 Kenya
    18 July 2021 Estonia
    1 August 2021 Finland
    22 August 2021 United Kingdom
    12 September 2021 Chile
    17 October 2021 Spain
    14 November 2021 Japan


    Additionally, events in Turkey, Latvia, Belgium, Argentina, the Acropolis in Greece and Monza in Italy will offer alternatives as “contingency events” in the perspective of on-going COVID-19 related issues.

    Amendments to the FIA WRC Sporting Regulations include the possibility for competitors entered with a Rally2 car to use previously homologated parts after applying a joker with the view to reduce costs, as it is practice in the Regional Rally Championships.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    As for GB (from WRC.COM):
    'WRC Promoter is in discussion with the UK governing body, Motorsport UK, which is working to confirm the required government funding. An announcement is expected to be forthcoming.'
    If in doubt, flat out!

    I read this exact calendar a few days ago on a website, except it said Rally Ireland for Rally GB.

    Re the prospect of Rally GB in N.Ireland - when Lappi drove there in the ERC a few years ago he raved about the roads there:

    "The stages are fast but technical and difficult, too. I really love them."

    yes. If UK is in Northern Ireland, there's five tarmac rallies! (Monte, Croatia, NI, Spain, Japan)

    I also like this calendar.

    NI are going to have a major job on making this cash appear during the height of a pandemic.

    Hope to be proven wrong but I wouldn't hold much hope for that event. It's a perfect storm of contracts winding down, changing sensibilities and priorities in government (sustainability/environmental factors). Coupled with poor and unengaging leadership at Motorsport UK and COVID as the big t*rd on top. As far as I can see rallying in the UK is in real trouble.

    I also think unless a vaccine appears over the winter the entire calendar is going to be a moving target once more in 2021.
