Due to concern over the ongoing Corona Virus, the 2020 edition of Portuguese World Rallycross Championship has been cancelled.
The Municipality of Montalegre, organiser of the Portuguese event, had announced last month that the event would run behind closed doors.
In a statement, the event’s organizer said: “In light of continued global health concerns regarding COVID-19, the current evolution of the pandemic in Portugal, the new State of Contingency enforced by the Portuguese authorities starting September 15, which brings new freedom of travel limitations and stricter public gathering rules, the World Rallycross of Portugal 2020 will unfortunately not take place this year.
“The health and safety of everyone involved remains the priority as we navigate these unprecedented circumstances.
“We very much look forward to welcoming the drivers, teams and fans to the Montalegre International Circuit for this world-class event in 2021.”
