Within an hour of the World Motor Sport Council’s announcement that their rally had been dropped from the 2018 WRC calendar, a statement was issued in Warsaw by the organisers of Rally Poland. “In the opinion of the WRC FIA, the organisation of the last edition of the Polish Rally did not meet the safety standards due to insufficient control of the organiser's maintenance services on the behaviour of the supporters,” Jaroslaw Noworol, rally Director, said. “As the organisers of the rally, we take full responsibility for situations that have taken place and which have led to a negative assessment of safety. “These situations were primarily a result of human error and were not due to our own negligence. We do not intend to give up our efforts to return to the elite circle of WRCs in subsequent years. “We are starting work on developing a new Rally Security concept using the help of the FIA ​​Security Department. “We are also working to make the Polish Rally as a world championship event even more supportive of the authorities and sponsors, without which it is impossible to organise such a huge undertaking. “I hope this will allow us to meet the financial expectations of our partners regarding promotional aspects,” he said.
