He wrote that he heard a rumour, it wasn't a reaction. I doubt it very much since I haven't heard anything about it either.

On the contrary I heard today that they are a negotiating a five-year deal. There was an article in local newspaper NWT in Värmland as well a month about ago that things were looking kinda good for Höljes.

However, nothing is confirmed though.

Last year Buxtehude was to crowded.
They have problems with carparks, so people parked cars on the road...
This is no advantage for next years.

Also, how much track do you see in Buxtehude?
Buxtehude is a great track, but WRX is way to big.

On the other hand, DTM and WRX in Hockenheim split, because WRX was in the shadow.
Now DTM needs other serries to fill the program. (no more Audi cup, no Porsche cup...) This could be the right time to go back to Hockenheim.
Great RX track, great for watching, seen some great racing there!

Well, this would mean that only Montalegre, Hell and Lohéac are left as "traditional" RX tracks. A terrible prospect .

Well, your right. The Estering is a great track, the atmosphere is fantastic and it´s only a 30 minute drive from home for me . But the venue is way too small and there is no room for expansion.

Last year I decided to park my car in Buxtehude and go to the track by taxi as I didn´t want to risk my (lowered) car to get damaged on the carpark. They have to find a better solution.

IMG want to be at GP tracks, if they could have every round at one, that would be their goal. They maybe rightly think WRC is for NEW fans only, they don't want old fans, and new fans don't know where Nyiraid is, os Slomczyn, they know where Spa is, or Monza.

They don't care about the track quality, the size, the fact that modern rallycross now in their eyes is sort of rough asphalt and tar, not loose or gravel. it only looks like rallycross at all when it rains.

They have already priced rallycross away from older venues, unless they get massive crowds as that is the only way a Loheac, Holjes can pay for the hosting fees, the GP tracks have money anyway and are sold on the marketing that it will bring in massive crowds, which it may or may not do, but the GP tracks have the finances to risk more than say Lydden Hill do or Maasmecehelen who would be ruined by one loss making meeting.

This is their model, the old model of smaller venues did not work. Turkey, Argentina, Italy, all fell away quickly.

They have Dutchman Kevin Abbring as a test driver so I was wondering is the ES Motosport Skoda the Dutch built car or is that another project?

Different projects, ES Motorsports Fabia is car built French Vaison and Czech Engineering. Not affiliated.

Funny how both cars have been prepared for quite a while.

Euro RX at Silverstone?

https://www.motorsport.com/world-rx/...-2019/3183532/

Interesting that the article mentions that the "paddock was tight at Silverstone". I thought that was part of the justification for leaving Lydden?

I wonder if the addition of EuroRX will result in another hike in ticket prices?

On the plus side it does look like they're responding to some of the criticism of this years Silverstone event - not enough track action.

On the other hand unless the price comes down it's still too expensive - just not value for money.

Yeah, even if the ERX was added I still think last years ticket price would be too steep.

(I would assume that ARX won't be there next year either?)

Maybe they will ditch the festival thing if paddock space is tight and that will bring g the price down. If they do a 50% discount for the first X number of tickets and if they make the back section of the dull track quicker, then I'd go. 45 to 55 supercars is always fun to watch. Just not for 90 quid!!
