Hard blow for Nacional: the Princess of Asturias is postponed

The autonomous government has prohibited the test that was to be held next week, and now there is fear for the next one, Llanes.


The enormous efforts of the organization have been of no avail to comply with all health prevention regulations. Nor the antecedents of Ourense and Ferrol, where the first two rounds of the Spanish Championship were held with an exemplary behavior from the fans and participants. The Government of Asturias has banned the Princess of Asturias Rally, which was to be held next week. A hard blow for Nacional. "The decision comes after deciding unilaterally, less than two weeks before the start, that our competition is an event rather than a sporting event of an international, national and regional nature," they explain from the organization.

"We have been working for months to achieve a safe test, and for this we have reached agreements that have allowed us to obtain health and prevention material such as PCR test for attendees. For the Automóvil Club Principado de Asturias, the safety and health of the participants and attendees is the most important and good proof of this are the numerous sacrifices that have been made over the last few weeks due to COVID-19, such as the suppression of the acts with the greatest influx of public: the protocol exit, the section urban or award ceremony. All with the aim of preserving health and maintaining only the sporting part of the competition, as the Spanish Rally Championship has already shown in the two events held in Galicia, where not a single one has been registered. only positive ", they add.

The event has been postponed, and he will try to reposition himself on the calendar this season, something that will be difficult. The problem is that the next appointment of the Nacional also takes place in Asturias at the beginning of October. The Villa de Llanes Rally could follow the path of the Princess if the regional authorities maintain the same line of action. If we add to this that the Rally of Catalonia was suspended last week, the outlook is bleak in the Spanish Championship.
