The Rwanda Mountain Gorilla Rally 2020 which was scheduled for May 15-17th will be postponed to a later date due to Covid-19 crisis
“We regret to inform rally drivers, sponsors, partners and fans that Rwanda Mountain Gorilla Rally 2020 which was scheduled for May 15-17th will be postponed to a later date,” the statement reads in part from Rwanda Automobile Club (RAC).
“In these challenging days, the motorsports fraternity sends a message of solidarity to all drivers, navigators, officials, volunteers, sponsors, partners and fans across the world as we stay strong that we shall race again soon,” the organisers said.
RAC said the decision to postpone the championship is in line with the Public Notice issued by the Office of the Prime Minister of Rwanda, regarding the Covid19 and in consultation with the Ministry of Sports and FIA regional Rally Department.
The Rwanda Mountain Gorilla Rally, known originally as the Fraternity Rally, is an international rally racing event organised by the Rwanda Automobile Club. The rally is based in the Rwandan capital of Kigali. The event is a round of the African Rally Championship and the Rwandan National Rally Championship.
