Details emerging from Portugal suggest that the 2019 WRC Rally of Portugal (31 May – 2 June) is expecting to include stages in the Arganil hills, traditionally one of the most spectacular areas in the championship. Since central servicing arrived in the sport, followed by the event’s move to the Algarve area, it has not been possible to include this area in the route. It is planned to cut out the stages in the far north of the country and it is also planned to run the downtown super special in Vila Nova di Gaia, south of Porto. It is hoped to start the event in Coimbra. There is to be a new rally director, Horacio Rodrigues, who replaces Pedro Almeida. Confirmation of these plans are not expected till January.
