World RX of Benelux cancelled due to COVID-19 situation

The penultimate round of the World Rallycross Championship – the World Rallycross of Benelux at the Circuit of Spa-Francorchamps, planned  for November 21-22 – has been cancelled due to health concerns over COVID-19.

The current health situation in Belgium has forced the FIA, the promoter IMG, the Belgian ASN (RACB) and the local organisers into taking this joint decision at the direction of the regional health authorities.

Nathalie Maillet, CEO of Spa-Francorchamps circuit, said: “This decision is related to an exceptional circumstance following the deterioration in the public health situation. Our priority is and will remain the health of safety of everyone.” 

As a result of the postponement of the event at Spa-Francorchamps, the final round of the FIA European Rallycross Championship for Supercar will be added to the World RX event at Nurburgring, Germany which is scheduled for December 12-13.
