The Central European Rally offers something new, yet something familiar too.
Never before have three nations clubbed together to host one round of the championship, and the WRC has never been to Austria or the Czech Republic before.
But Germany is familiar turf, although not the Passau region. So what can we expect? Will this format work? Will CER be a success straight out of the box? And who’s likely to come out on top?
Elsewhere, there’s plenty to discuss about next year’s calendar which was revealed last week, and in the driver market with questions surrounding Hyundai’s two Finns and M-Sport’s two Frenchmen.
Sound good? Great, because that’s what’s in store on this week’s SPIN, The Rally Pod hosted by Colin Clark with analysis from George Donaldson and Luke Barry.
