The FIA has confirmed date changes for the final two rounds of the 2008 World Rally Championship.
After a meeting of The World Motor Sport Council in Paris, the dates for Rally Japan and Wales Rally GB have both been moved back by one week.
Rally Japan will now run from 31 October to 2 November rather than its original 24-26 October slot, while Wales Rally GB will run from 5-7 December rather than 28-30 November.
The organisers of both rallies requested a date change because of clashes with other major sporting events in their cities.
Rally Japan will now be able to make use of the 41,000 seat Sapporo Dome, while Wales Rally GB will be back at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
