The final World Cup event in Australia, in danger

The fires that plague the region of New South Wales have forced the first day of reconnaissance to be canceled and if there is proof, it will be shortened.


Fire threatens the last appointment of the World Championship. The Rally of Australia is in danger due to the important fires that plague the region of New South Wales. For the time being, the first day of recognition and the national event that was being held in parallel has been suspended, and if the competition goes ahead it will be with a shortened route.

The important fires that affect the surroundings of Coffs Harbor, the town that hosts the last World Cup event, are putting the organizers in check. So serious is the situation, that they have already been forced to cancel the recognition day on Tuesday and the national competition that ran parallel to the rally. It could even be suspended.

A spokesperson for the organization has said that “the Rally Australia is with the community of New South Wales, especially with people who have lost loved ones, livelihoods and homes as a result of fires in northern New South Wales . Public safety is our main consideration in test planning this week. We will provide more information about any revised plan as it becomes available. ”

A difficult situation that could spoil the outcome of the season. With the title of pilots in the hands of Ott Tanak, in the test of the antipodes the sub-championship between Thierry Neuville and Sebastien Ogier and the title of marks between Hyundai and Toyota should be decided. But there are more important things.
