The British Rally Championship has decided to abandon their 2020 season following the cancellation of Wales Rally GB.
Citing the complications from COVID-19, the championship will turn to 2021.
“The team behind the British Rally Championship have worked tirelessly with the organisers of the Renties Ypres Rally, Armstrong Galloway Hills Rally and Wales Rally GB to conclude the 2020 BRC season," BRC Championship Manager, Iain Campbell said.
"Unfortunately, now Wales Rally GB is not going ahead, it is not possible to continue with sufficient events to have a full and meaningful championship.
“The situation that the UK has found itself in since mid-March with the COVID-19 pandemic has been a constantly moving and fluid situation regarding the movement of people, hosting events and social distancing.
Hayden Paddon was on the pace in WRC2 at Wales Rally GB in 2020.
"It has all happened over quite a short period and it was hoped that restrictions could be lifted in the coming months to give us confidence and to have sufficient rounds to have a proper competition.
"With the loss of our reserve event – which accounts for two rounds, we have taken the decision to not continue the championship.”
"We hope the situation will improve throughout 2020, and we will in the meantime plan to come back stronger in 2021.”
