Dmack’s new DMG+22 gravel tyre has a new pattern and smaller blocks

FIA World Rally Championship tyre manufacturer Dmack has launched a new gravel tyre, available to competitors at the final three rounds of the 2017 championship. Aimed specifically at WRC cars and competitors, the new DMG+22 gravel tyre will first see action at RACC Rally de Espana next month – equipping Elfyn Evans’ M-Sport World Rally Team Ford Fiesta WRC. The brand hopes to build upon its success this season, having missed victory in Argentina by 0.7 seconds, and setting fastest times on five of the six gravel rallies this season.

The new DMG+22 tread pattern has more grooves and smaller tread blocks, providing greater performance in wet, muddy and slippery conditions. Both permitted compounds are softer than their predecessors. The new soft compound GS84 is similar to that used to score 12 fastest times in Rally...

WRC unveils 2018 calendar, confirms Turkey return - Motorsport.com, Edition: Global

Today’s World Motor Sport Council meeting has ratified a 13-round World Rally Championship calendar for next season – with Turkey returning for the first time since 2010.

The Marmaris-based Rally of Turkey replaces Rally Poland on the schedule of events, but runs in September to close up the current five-week gap between rounds 10 and 11.

Poland’s departure had been telegraphed following the rally’s troubled record with spectator safety.

Rally Turkey’s inclusion comes on the caveat of an acceptable candidate event, which runs next month.

The only other date change for next season involves a switch for Britain and Spain’s rounds, with Rally GB now running ahead of Rally Spain.

Rounds one and two in Monte Carlo and Sweden are both a week later than this year in an effort to offer a longer winter break.

Mexico, Argentina, Portugal, Italy and Australia all have to finalise their...

Subaru Rally Team USA Sends Chris Atkinson To China - The Drive

Chris Atkinson has seen some success in the Red Bull Global Rallycross championship this year, with podium finishes in Connecticut, Atlantic City, and Seattle. But according to some recent posts on social media, Atkinson has returned to his roots in stage rally to pilot a Subaru XV Crosstrek rally car in China.

Though "Atko" is best known these days as a rallycross driver, he drove for Subaru in the World Rally Championship from 2005 to 2008 alongside Petter Solberg. 

According to his website, Atko's first visit to the Chinese Rally Championship was in 2015, where he helped the FAW-VW Rally Team win both the driver's and manufacturer's championships. He rejoined the FAW-VW Rally Team in China last year, where he competed against Subaru Rally Team USA's David Higgins.

World Rally Championship Drops Rally Poland Over Out-Of-Control Spectators - Jalopnik

Photo credit: @World/Red Bull Content Pool

Rally Poland, the second oldest stage rally in the world, just lost its spot on the World Rally Championship calendar, reports Motorsport.com. The rally had issues with spectator safety for four years in a row, so the WRC will not renew their contract with Rally Poland that ends this year.

There are few if any protective barriers between rally cars and fans on open stages, so rallies have to be extra careful about making sure no one’s standing in a dangerous place. Spectator safety issues earned Rally Poland an official “yellow card” warning from the FIA (the governing body over the WRC) after 2015's event, meaning that the 2016 event had to go off without any issues.
