The Asia-Pacific Rally Championship is on a knife's edge with its two Asia and Pacific Cups due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so a new wildcard system for the APRC Final has been agreed.
According to the FIA, the final will be "Rally Coffs Harbour from 27-29 November, participants are drawn from the APRC Asia Cup and APRC Pacific Cup based on the results achieved.
"With both series experiencing a number of cancellations, competitors have approved a proposal to revise the qualifying criteria, which will now allow ASNs nominate competitors for the Final in Australia".
Interestingly, Motorsport Australia has still not revealed that Coffs Harbour will host the APRC final, nor has it confirmed that the rally will play host to the final round of the Australian Rally Championship.
Meanwhile, numerous cancellations have forced the organisers of the FIA African Rally Championship to switch their focus to 2021.
Although the Rallye Côte d’Ivoire Bandama in Ivory Coast took place as scheduled in February, COVID-19 restrictions forced the cancellation of all following events in the series’ calendar.
As a result, the African Rally Championship title will not be awarded this season and planning is now underway to finalise a 2021 calendar which would include the results of the Ivory Coast event, subject to approval by the Rally Commission and WMSC.
