Initially scheduled from September 24 to 27, the Turkey rally is thus brought forward by one week, from September 17 to 20.

With this change made less than two months before the event, the integration of the Ypres rally into the calendar becomes possible again, two weeks later.

The Belgian round would thus be perfectly wedged between Turkey and Germany, thus meeting the logistical requirements of the teams. In this regard, the FIA, via a press release, simply clarified: “The date change makes it easier to introduce additional events into the schedule for the second half of the season in what remains an evolving situation due to the Covid-19 pandemic. “

Also present among the “list of substitutes”, like Belgium, Croatia also remains in the race to host a WRC round.

The new Managing Director of WRC Promoter, Jona Siebel, thanked the Turkish Ministry of Youth and Sports and TOSFED (organizer of the rally) for accepting this change.

“The date change gives us options if we wish to introduce other events into the 2020 calendar and we are extremely grateful to TOSFED for its flexibility in tough times for sport across the world.

The event will of course take place with the Covid-19 protocols in place. Guidelines from FIA and WRC promoters will be applied to Turkish health laws in order to create a safe environment for everyone involved and for the fans. “

TOSFED President Eren Üçlertopraği said: “We are delighted to welcome the FIA ​​WRC to Turkey for the third time and will do whatever is necessary to organize a safe and successful event under the conditions required. “
