2020 WRC Calendar Lost Another StageJune 9, 2020
The UK rally was the sixth canceled stage of the WRC in the 2020 season. For the first time in its history, the World Rally Championship, which has been held since 1973, will not come to Misty Albion.
Previously, due to the coronavirus pandemic, stages in Portugal, Kenya, Finland, and New Zealand were canceled. Even before the outbreak of Covid-19, Chile Rally was canceled due to financial problems.
“We held negotiations with our partners, the government and as a result made this difficult decision. We closely watched the development of events and increasingly understood that it was impossible to plan such a large-scale sporting event for the fall, ”commented David Richards, head of the British National Federation of Motorsport UK.
