WRC drops Rally Chile from calendar
Tuesday 21st January, 2020 - 11:09am
The FIA World Rally Championship has officially dropped Rally Chile from its calendar due to political unrest.
Organisers requested a cancellation in November, which has now been confirmed after a World Motor Sport Council e-vote last week.
The loss of the Chile event, originally scheduled for April 16-19, has triggered a second change with Rally Argentina being shifted forward a week to April 23-26.
That move has been made to ease the logistical burden of sending equipment from South America to Kenya for its return to the calendar on July 16-19.
The traditional season-opener of Rallye Monte-Carlo begins this Thursday night (local time).
