    Discussing the position of the spare wheel was a thing 17 years ago when Focus 06 was introduced. That's the last experiment I recall.

    Rally NI not happening in 2022. Replacement list likely to include Ypres and Monza.

    Actually I was also hoping for Deutschland, having heard rumors about it somewhere (here?). Even though Deutschland is one of my least favourite rallies. Ypres would be nice as well.

    I really really hope we donít get Monza for a third year running. Iíd love it if Deutschland would be back, if not then Ypres and if they canít make it then perhaps France, perhaps Corsica? All wishful thinking of course. I just hope NZ wonít be cancelled again.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    Monza is the lazy choice - and it could be good if they actually did more running in the mountains, and less at the circuit, but they don't........I quite liked Deutschland, but it became a bit stale. I wouldn't say no to a return to Ypres, but they need to increase the km on the Sunday, for the distance they have to travel.


    As for no UK round for another year, well, "you reap what you sew". MSUK were seemingly asleep on the job for a number of years and just expected Wales to keep backing the event. It beggars belief that an event that used to get huge crowds, media coverage, etc not only isn't in the WRC, it can't even run as a national event.

    Both Monza and Ypres are bad, each in their own way. Out of those Monza has maybe most potential for "character change".

    It's funny as Ypres is the 2nd most compact rally on the calender (behind Monza) in terms of stage km / total km.
    I prefer a compact rally with 1 long liaison over a rally full of half long liaisons.
    Also, on rallies like Monte Carlo, a 3 hour liaison is common.

    I think it's too early. Normal rallies who plan to run in August have their route now planned etc.
