Three of the four races scheduled for Rallycross Championship and French Cup gave up in the last 2 weeks because of legislation organisation tougher imposed by authorities due to pandemic evolution in those areas. The lot of Rallycross Championship and French Cup 2020 is now in the hands of FFSA, that should communicate in the next days.
As explained recently in a press release, AFOR is not the owner of Rallycross Championship and Cup and the organisation must respect the rules imposed by FFSA in terms of announcements, communication and decisions. However, President Jean-Jacques Bénezet wanted to express after the federal go-ahead.
A huge disappointment
« The announcement of april to be obliged to delay and then cancel the championship races has been a hard decision after having worked to offer to fans a beautiful competition, with 2 new promotion categories.
The cancelation announcement of 3 of the 4 races of the championship is a reel shock for my team and I. Since 17 of march and the beginning of the confinement, we have worked without stop to find solutions and organise the championship, with FFSA, partners and all the AFOR team".
