    We can speculate that the main reason was money The one thing the WRC Promoter told every candidate was not to forget about the "entry fee"

    Money was not problem. Entry fee for Liepaja was more than reasonable - 450 000 EUR and government was ready to open wallet.

    I'm still hoping and believing that Monza will be made into a proper rally and not like Monza Rally Show. I don't care if they do the Monza Rally show style stage as a "super special" on Friday and Sunday. Even if they do it twice both days, as long as Saturday is a long day of proper stages.
    Monza rally show was never more than that, a show.

    I don't know how big the area of the circuit is, but if there are some acces and service roads, they might be able to create something that looks like real rally.

    We had something similar in spa here.

    Before Monza was a track show, it was a real rally, with some ss on track, some on service road and some on real road (even gravel!)

    Saturday with ~ 130 km "mountain" stages. Thursday, Friday and Sunday on track. Probably 16 SS total.

    And how far it can go in real conditions. I'd like to see that too.

    By the way in this video from 2017 you can see few shots of Černư with Stohl's electric P207 against rally, rallycross and autocross cars. Unfortunately it broke early. The P207 is at 0:15 and 1:32.

    I saw and (almost) did not hear Stohl's/STARD Fiesta for Project E in december 2019. The sound is awful. You can hear similar from Kona during some moments of Paddon's video. It is like ping/whistle and you are only wondering where the guy with remote controller is staying
