    All the worry would be about ice. If there is ice then stages get cancelled, as they don’t have the tyres for it.
    I’m sure there won’t be any issues as others have commented.
    If the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off!

    Would be kinda silly to cancel a stage because of snow, when you think about Monte Carlo.

    In Monte you have snow + studded tyres in choice, but Croatia is just slicks.

    Unless there are steep uphill or downhill section that just can't be done with slicks, i don't see any problem. They will just need to take it slow.

    The only issue is that it will create very changing conditions, fucking over some drivers because they have to clean.

    No, they have rain tyres also. Which are a lot better than slicks, still obviously not meant for snow/ice.

    So we have done the recce by now, bit of snow in some places but this won't last for long. Otherwise, conditions are changing a lot. Really really slippery forests with deep cuts and standing water but also quite dry section between the fields.

    Is that what the sheep are for, to fill the potholes?

    I shouldn't joke -- here in the UK, a friend of mine recently had the suspension on his car (BMW Ix) broken by a pothole. Six thousand quid to fix, covered by insurance thankfully.
