2020 WRC RALLIES
AN UPDATE BROUGHT TO YOU BY RALLYSTAR MOTORING
We at Rallystar your favourite motosport website will do our best to update you on the evolving around the Covid-19 pandemic and the various government restrictions.
No decisions on event dates will be made by the WRC organisers before updates on the respective emergency status are available.
in a statement on the 20th March 2020 the organisers said, “We remain committed to continuing with as many rallies as we can either on their current date, or where possible, a rescheduled date. A WRC event can be a difficult event to change given the many logistical, environmental, road/forest access and even weather conditions, but all efforts will be made to run as many events as possible.”
“There is a duty of care to all stakeholders including fans, drivers, teams, media, suppliers and others to protect not only ourselves but also the wider community, and this remains our key focus.”
We at Rallystar plan to provide a regular update to keep you as informed as we can, while the FIA and WRC Promoter continue to actively monitor the worldwide and individual country situation regarding COVID-19 in cooperation with its event organisers and ASN’s.
21’March 2020 – We can report the following on each of the imminent upcoming events:
The rally has been postponed.
Argentine borders are closed and the country is under mandatory quarantine.
No chance of theis event happening before the fourth quarter of 2020.
Schengen border closed.
State of Emergency.
Two weeks movement restrictions announced on 19th March 2020.

Seafreight movement from Mexico to be committed by 3rd April!
We at Rallystar believe that not one of above rallies will take place on their initial dates as the effects of the Covis-19 fiasco will probably only become clear by end of April.
It is truly a sad situation but much more scary and serious than many of us believe.
like you, we also hope we are wrong, but this is one of those situations where it doesn’t matter who you know, let alone who you are.
More news to you as soon as we receive it.
