Seeing as how the Motorsport section isn't very active I decided to post it here.

its been like that for a while. like the 2002 winter olympics i remember them talking about a huge amount of security because it was only a few months after 9/11.

Yeah, mainly because 8 of the 15 stages (or over half of the rally) were in an area that is extremely dangerous. I doubt it would have been canceled if an attack hadn't occurred so close to the actual rally.
