Martin, I saw a reply to a post of yours I can't find .....Spain wasn't confirmed. Not by those who knew what they were talking about anyway Australia (not the 1978 one) made me chuckle too.
Something about "If Brazil doesn't come off I'd be happy to go with no. 3 on the list. Assuming it isn't kidnapped to go elsewhere"
I assume this has to be something to do with AK? Like plans for the next phase, to include a ride very much based on a country that is also in the running to be added to WS?
IIRC, Egypt, Greece and India were all bandied about in the discussion over Brazil.
Any further hints you can give us?
