With the cancellation of the Ypres Rally as the last precedent, the possibility that the Italian event will not take place is very real.

In fact, Evans does not lose focus and continues with his preparation for the appointment around the Italian racetrack.

Along these lines, Evans has also referred to the pre-event tests: «I don’t know exactly where we’ll do the pre-test, but I know it won’t be very close to Monza. It is important to be back in the car, although it would have been good to have been able to test on a circuit or some similar place to have a more representative test of where most of the mileage of the rally is. It’s a shame that we couldn’t do our pre-Ypres Rally test before cancellation. Hyundai tested a bit earlier than us and their drivers have had one more day in the car. Everything matters, but we can’t change that, so we have to keep working».
