In light of continued global health concerns regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the current evolution of the pandemic in Portugal, the new State of Contingency enforced by the Portuguese authorities starting September 15th, which brings new freedom of travel limitations and stricter public gathering rules, the World Rallycross of Portugal 2020, scheduled to be hosted at Montalegre International Circuit on 10-11 October, will unfortunately not take place this year. The health and safety of everyone involved remains the priority as we navigate these unprecedented circumstances.

We very much look forward to welcoming the drivers, teams, and fans to the Montalegre International Circuit for this world-class event in 2021.

IMG as the organizer of the championship is working on a plan to run the World Rallycross of Catalunya-Barcelona (17-18 October) as a double-header event for World RX and Super1600. Further information and more details of the event schedule will follow.
