If a track doesn’t exist anymore, does someone still can have the rights for it? Or are rights/licenses still needed for it to do it in the game?

if the rights of the track aren’t registrated anymore, than anyone could register it to have the rights from it. 

Thinks something happened with Gulf a long time ago. That was not registrated and than some people saw that and got the brand basically for free. 

also I don’t understand, there is so much space, why than put a building on it? Ofcourse the grounds purpose is for business, so easier to get a permit. But still. 

I mean the easiest way to do it is just make the track but not have any sort of identifiers with Lyngas' name on it.  Just call it "Tranby, Norway."

Or flip the Start lap and the normal laps.  So you run the big corner on every lap and the chicane is the Joker lap.

RallyX Nordic at Kouvola (a former WRX track). Will be a interesting final and who will be the champion. Larsson in his Audi, or Oliver in his Honda.

Apart from ARX, Audi can still win all 3 "major international" rallycross championships: WRX, ERX and Nordic.

I'm thinking, could the Audi S1 go towards ARX next year replacing the Beetles? I think VW don't allow the Beetles to race next year in ARX, and the S1 could be a good replacement for the Andretti team, as it also a VAG product. Maybe EKS could build a new S1 with some support from Audi NA.

There has been some rumours about Finland being in the next years calendar with Kymiring. The layout looks okay-ish. There just doesn't seem to be anything that makes the track special. But Kymiring has some elevations changes so that might make it good.

Possibly.

We don't get the A/S1 here so that might be a detractor for support from the factory.

Was a crazy weekend at Loheac for sure and no one could be consistent. Enjoyed the action, although it was a bit shame of some incidents, also f.e. in the Euro RX semi-final where cars crashed out including Thomas Bryntesson. It is a shame that Gronholm missed two weekends, otherwise he probably would have led the championship with maybe about 10 points. Kevin Hasen was also lucky that he got the final after Scheider messed it up in the semi-final. 

And Rokas "Rocket" Baciuska also impressed again. That Prodrive Megane just seems better than that G-Fors Megane. I heard the difference were in the dampers and the engine. Marklund ofcourse brings his Bilstein partner.

I think the G-Fors Meganes use Oreca engines this year.

wow, the hansens got super lucky in the SF and Final this weekend! Kevin getting 3rd in his semi because Schieder had some kind of mistake right near the end, and Timmy being gifted first place in the final because Bakkerud and Gronholm got tangled on the first corner. still, great weekend yet again. it's nice no longer having factory teams who just completely outperform everyone else. it'll be nice if OMSE come back with the Erikssons (and/or Larsson) next year. should be super competitive.

Heikkinen was great this weekend too! especially considering he doesn't seem to have driven much RX at all since he was Ekstrom's teammate in 2017, he was very impressive.

and agreed- it's a big shame Gronholm missed those two weeks, otherwise he'd probably be on top now, or at least very close.

Yeah. Gronholm should - at least in my opinion - have been Champion this year. Such a shame that he had to miss two rounds. I was hoping that he would win in France and the other top three would have a poor weekend so he could get back in the mix, but with just 60 points available now, that seems very unlikely... 

...still a great weekend for the Championship though. Although I haven't warmed to Timmy and Kevin, I can't deny that it was a smart drive from both of them in the final. Especially impressive from Kevin in the closing stages of the race, I thought he was holding the field back for Timmy, was stunned when came out from the joker in third!

Good speed from Topi, but standout performance of the weekend had to be Baciuska. I still would like to see Bakkerud win, but I think he will be outsmarted by the Hansen brothers. Every point counts at this stage and I think Andreas was daft not to just let Niclas go in the final. By trying to outbrake him, they both tumbled down the order and allowed Timmy and Kevin to close the gap. 

Got my 5 minutes of fame on the World RX Instagram as well...

Forgive the double post - and this isn't World Rallycross content - but I uploaded a few pictures from round 5 of the British Championship, so I thought I'd post a few here:

With those done I can start looking at my Loheac pictures this evening!
