The world is a different place in 2020, and last weekend's opening round of the European Rally Championship gave us an indication on what that means for rallying in the future. Rally di Roma Capitale was the first FIA international-level event to run since lockdown restrictions eased in certain countries. It meant that everyone involved in the event had to adhere to social distancing, were seen wearing face masks, and that temperature testing was commonplace throughout the rally. There were similar scenes at the Rally of the Bay earlier this month, although face masks were not required. There was, however, limits on the number of people allowed in the service park, and spectators 'discouraged', rather than being banned. It's the new world order, and as strange as it might be to see drivers and promotional girls wearing face masks on the podium, it's something we're going to have to get used to. These images show how COVID-19 is making its mark on world rallying, and what you're likely to encounter next time you head to an event near you.
