Interesting notes from the World Council

The World Council decisions included the decision to switch rallying from its current all-year calendar to a new format in 2007. The 2006 season will be the same as is currently the case but after that there will be a short 2007 season, which will include just eight or nine events shoe-horned between January and May and then after that the World Championship will be run over two calendar years, presumably to move rallying to the winter months and thus avoid clashes with the summer activities. The 2007-2008 World Championship will start in August 2007 and will finish in May 2008.

The other point of note is that if all goes to plan there will be an FIA GT event on the streets of Bucarest in Romania on April 23 next year.
