An unofficial three-round championship in New Zealand is close to becoming a reality, after the cancellation of this year's national series. The North Island based series would not run under the auspices of Motor Sport New Zealand. Instead, it would be run by the Australian Auto Sport Alliance (AASA). "Gordon Legge (AASA) is part-way through getting clubs committed for three rounds, classic rally roads, staying well away from the Silver Fern so it doesn’t become a battle for cars and roads," RallySport Magazine was told today. "Stand-alone trophies and the prize list are TBA, but he is aiming to offer cash prizes if possible." New Zealand website, Talk Motorsport, have also reported that the series is a real possibility. "The series would be held in late 2020 to ensure all Covid 19 health and safety requirements can be observed. It would also give teams time to budget and book accommodation for the three North Island events," Talk Motorsport's Mark Baker reported. "Though the series would not run under a MotorSport New Zealand event permit, the parallel nature of the sanctioning organisation means participation will in no way compromise MSNZ membership going forward. "Expressions of interest are being invited from drivers keen on the idea."
