Rally New Zealand is continuing its preparations to host the World Rally Championship on the fast and flowing roads around Auckland.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has already caused mass cancellations of events, the organising team is not ready to throw in the towel.
They will be working hard towards September's event and will be meeting with relevant FIA and WRC parties in the coming weeks.
"Rally New Zealand is continuing to prepare to host a leg of the World Rally Championships in Auckland in September," the statement said.
"Of course there is currently major global uncertainty affecting everyone, including the 2020 World Rally Championship.
"Over the coming weeks we will continue to liaise closely with local and central government agencies as well as the WRC Promoter and international governing body (FIA)."
Rally New Zealand has not hosted a round of the WRC since 2012 when Sebastien Loeb won in his Citroen DS3 WRC.
