    Liepaja was attempted to make into a WRC event but it didnít work out, I guess it was their best shot. You donít really put up a WRC event from nowhere in a couple of weeks.

    +1. It's very easy to judge if you don't know how much work goes into it organizing an event or championship. Not even talking about the extra challenges they're facing these times.

    The Monza Rally will run within the confines of the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza on Friday and Sunday with roads used in the surrounding mountains on Saturday.

    There’s plenty of speculation that stages included on the Rally Trofeo ACI Como, which runs as a standalone event on November 6-7, will be part of the itinerary. But that speculation is wide of the mark according to Turitto.

    “I don’t think we use the Como stages,” he said, “I think we can find some other nice roads. We have some ideas.”

    True, no one is saying it's easy, far from it, but the fact of the matter is that the ERC has managed to pull it off and they managed to get their season up and running back in July where as the WRC still didn't know what to do and how to manage their depleting calendar. The events were dropped one by one like flies..Surely the WRC could've brought the Rally of Estonia to Mid-August (and with better preparation maybe even sooner), it's not like they had to plan the event from mid-air, they were planning to do the event anyhow. It's the FIA's (& Promoter) job to make sure it happens and they also should've been more clear on their plans and taken those decisions sooner and therefore would've made it easier for each Rally Organizer to prepare their event on time. There's no reason why the WRC should have started in early Sep. when by then most disciplines have already started, and I still don't see why the WRC couldn't get Ypres to run next weekend instead of a month from now and why we couldn't get another event or two when they built the redesigned calendar for 2020. The only 'good' lesson they (hopefully not just for next year) learned is that next season we already have replacement rallies in case the original calendar will fall flat on it's face like it did this year... Sorry for opening this here, should've been on a different thread, if we continue discussing it I propose we'll continue on the right thread.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    [WRC] Monza Rally 2020

    I donít think Rally Estonia could have run any earlier. Remember how they almost didnít run the rally at all before they got the replacement slot? It was quite an achievement to get it organized so quickly. Also, Liepaja was on the initial plans for August

    Of course close by rally fans are going to attend !

    I said fans of Tanak and Neuvuille wont travel there in big numbers as they would if either was in with a chance of clinching the title at Monza.

    Yes I remember the whole chaos before running Rally Estonia, and I'm saying kudos to their organizers, however, it's the FIA's & promoter's job to find a venue and make it happen so the championship isn't frozen for 6 whole months...
    If in doubt, flat out!

    Everything depends on the pandemic. Italy has now a "mild lockdown" until 24th November
