Due to the ongoing coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic and the associated travel restrictions, the Sertões Rally originally scheduled for 14 to 23 August has had to be postponed until 07 to 15 November.
Given the already condensed nature of the 2020 calendar and particularly the limited time between the Rally of Morocco and the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge (UAE) plus the logistical issues this will cause, the FIM and the local organisers have decided that it will be in the best interest of all the competitors and related parties if the Sertões Rally is withdrawn from the 2020 FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship.
The good news is that the Sertões Rally will be back in the 2021 FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship calendar and will take place next summer; the exact dates will be confirmed at a later stage.
All parties will continue to work together to ensure another memorable edition in Brazil next year and would like to thank everyone involved for their kind understanding and support during this challenging time.
