Though clearly aimed at attracting entries from within the UK, Rally the Globe is also hoping that its regular competitors from northern Europe will take advantage of the convenient Amsterdam to Newcastle ferry route to renew rivalries and friendships in Scotland. “We are very much hoping the Highland Thistle will be a big celebration of our freedom but clearly it is entirely dependent on what the Scottish government allows at the time – that’s why we are offering entrants the security of a full refund should such gatherings not be permitted come the autumn,” confirmed Graham Goodwin, Rally the Globe’s Chairman.
Rally the Globe has announced an innovative and exciting new calendar of future events for happier times once the current COVID-19 crisis has passed. With novel coronavirus causing widespread worldwide lock-downs and major travel restrictions, many of the club’s forthcoming events – including the eagerly-anticipated Round the World circumnavigation – have had to be cancelled.
The current global pandemic and resultant travel restrictions have already seen the cancellation of Rally the Globe’s next two proposed assignments: this month’s Celtic Challenge and the opening leg of the planned Round the World trilogy which was to run from London to Casablanca starting in late May.
Foment de Sitges, organizing body of the Ral•li Internacional de Cotxes d'Època Barcelona-Sitges, in collaboration with the Sitges Town Hall and the Barcelona Town Hall, announced the cancellation of the 62nd edition of this classic car rally, which has to run on March 21-23, 2020.
Friday March 13, 2020 should feel the opening of the one of the oldest running clasic car rallyes - the Costa Brava Rally FIA. The centre of Girona was abandoned instead. Due to the govenrmental decisions the rally was cancelled, a few hours before its start.
It is a unique success story: what began in 2001 as a relatively modest meeting for enthusiasts at the old trade fair grounds in Killesberg has long become the world's largest trade fair for driving culture, a super show at one of the most modern trade fair centres in Europe, a must-attend event and a yardstick of an entire scene. RETRO CLASSICS STUTTGART® opened its doors for collectors, dealers, aficionados and lovers of classic cars for the twentieth time from 27 February to 1 March 2020.
