    No.


    I am not so sure about the animals issue. The local drivers in Fabia R5s run them without any extra front protection.

    But an interesting point that lately drivers "demand" to get time back for just about anything, partly also due to the small time differences at finish which again is also related to the short distances rallies run over. This might be an issue here where all kinds of dust/catching other drivers/blocked stages/animals can happen.

    Then again I'd expect time differences to be much bigger here.

    It really still has different elements than any other WRC Rally

    Interesting!

    I assume the lines will be there afterwards recce.

    Prokop only WRC2 driver in Kenya Mikkelsen-Bulacia won't start because of car damage from Italy..(I rather bet on money-wise) and Suninen won't start, because M-Sport can't afford another members to go there + quarantine rules..

    It all sounds like being about money (both Suninen and Toksport). Toksport can't get a hold of a Fabia anywhere? I think I hear that one of the cars that Mikkelsen drove is even owned by Skoda motorsport and in Sardinia they ran 5 cars? Bulacias car with panel damage can't be fixed in 3 weeks? ( I guess they use different cars in Poland).
    Suninen sounds like a reaction to his Sardinia crash. Specifically since Prokop goes anyway.

    Anyway better that "nobody" goes, rather than "competition" with 2 cars.

    Valid point that was raised is that current rules require the teams to enter one round outside of Europe. So this means "everyone" has to go to Japan. It's not quite clear to me if this rule applies only to team championship or also to drivers.

    The line in the rule-book stating everyone must do an event outside Europe can quickly be changed if the right people are going to push for it. Especially considering the calendar has been changed and Chili is replaced by Acropolis.
