    I also like this calendar.
    Are we still certain Japan is going to be a tarmac round?

    Some months ago it was announced that they won't make that 2021 model. They continue with the current Yaris next year and in 2022 is time for new regulations

    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.
    Unless Covid is beaten very soon I think you can kiss goodbye to a UK round for 2021.

    Funding issues aside the lack of appetite for the potential of large numbers of spectators being allowed to travel from wherever will put a stop to any plans. Apart from a couple of events held on private airfields or land there have been no rallies in the UK and Ireland for months unlike it would seem in the rest of the world. The road ahead is going to be bumpy at best.

    I'm a bit more optimistic. Once a vaccine is resdy things could improve quite quickly and Rally GB is slated for Aug 2021. N.Ireland is also very keen to take it's chance to get on the WRC at last.

    Hang on, what? They can't do that already?! They're forced to buy the newer parts just to enter?

    Wish I shared your blind optimism but barring a MAJOR commercial title sponsor there just wont be the funds available for either possible venue Wales/N.I in 2021 or some time to come. The re-build from Covid and the fallout from Brexit which remember is 365 day reality in January means that nice to haves like a WRC round will be small fry when it comes to government money.

    When they put the new homologated parts, they can't go back to previous "version".

    For example, you put the new upgraded engine on your car. After that, you can't go back to the old engine.
