The Rally of Morocco, considered as a preparatory test for the Dakar Rally, is postponed until next autumn 2021, but will be replaced this year by the alternative test of Andalusia.

According to a statement from the organization of the Rally, the suspension of the Moroccan race is due to the fact that "the spread of Covid-19 in Morocco is still very active and makes the organization of the rally very difficult at the moment."

However, the organization insisted on the "vital" importance of maintaining the organization of this event to guarantee its continuity for the drivers, teams, coaches, and service providers of this discipline.

The alternative will be with the Andalusia Rally, which will be organized between October 6 and 10, and which will be adapted to the sanitary conditions and limitations imposed by the pandemic.

This alternative test will consist of a prologue on October 6, and 4 stages of approximately 300 kilometers each, which will be run in shifts (cars and motorcycles separately), the following four days.

According to the note, signed by the director and organizer of the rally David Castera, all competitors registered for the Morocco event can change their registration to the Rally de Andalucía.

The 2019 edition of the Morocco Rally, which was held last October, was won by the South African Giniel de Villiers (Toyota Hilux), ahead of the Spanish Carlos Sainz, this being his fourth absolute victory in the Moroccan rally, although with different teams.
