FIA set to ratify revised 2020 WRC calendar
- 16th June 2020, 2:05pm
One non-WRC rally under consideration is the Ypres Rally in Belgium – an event run by Hyundai Motorsport team manager, Alain Penasse.Its inclusion was revealed by multiple sources in Belgium, who quoted an FIA source as saying that: "Ypres is one of the options under investigation”. The Ypres Rally currently hosts a Belgian Rally Championship round, and was to host the British Rally Championship before it was cancelled for 2020. In the past, it was part of the European Rally Championship for many years, and featured two current specification WRC cars at the 2019 event, as part of the ‘Ypres Rally Masters’ class. Additionally, a new date for the WRC’s Rally Italia Sardegna is expected to be confirmed shortly. The rally, held on the Mediterranean island, will feature the service park in Alghero once again. Organisers are looking for an October date to hold the rally. Spain’s Rally Islas Canarias has been rumoured to also be on the list. The event is the final round of the European Rally Championship and was again rescheduled last week, being brought forward a week to November 26-28. Argentina, Turkey, German and Japan are the other remaining rounds of the 2020 WRC calendar which have not been run or formally cancelled. Further details are expected after the FIA Motorsport Council meeting on June 19.
