A Rally New Zealand test event will be held in early November, with a two-day format to the north and south of Auckland. An announcement is expected tomorrow (Wednesday) that outlines the rally details, but RallySport Magazine understands the event will be held on November 14 and 15. Rally New Zealand was originally scheduled to run on the first weekend in September as a round of the WRC, however, the Coronavirus pandemic put paid to that. Event organisers are keen to get a rally off the ground in 2020 though, and a revised date, with a different format, will take place. Saturday's stages are expected to be held north of Auckland, while Sunday will potentially use stages on land owned by leading NZ competitor Andrew Hawkeswood, to the south of the city. Although Rally New Zealand's slot in the WRC was only for 2020, event organisers are already working with the WRC Promoter and the FIA to try and have the rally included in the 2021 program.
