Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Rally Latvia will be­come a gravel rally and re­main on the Euro­pean Rally Cham­pi­onship cal­en­dar for three more years af­ter the event and cham­pi­onship agreed a new deal.

This year’s event was post­poned due to a lack of snow, its orig­i­nal date be­ing Fe­bru­ary 5-7.

It was de­cided that the new counter would take place from Septem­ber 16-18.

For the re­main­der of the deal, Latvia will be­come a gravel event.

“We’re de­lighted to con­firm the ex­ten­sion of our con­tract with Rally Latvia for a fur­ther three years,” said ERC gen­eral co-or­di­na­tor Jean-bap­tiste Ley. “It has brought a unique di­men­sion to the FIA Euro­pean Rally Cham­pi­onship since join­ing as a snow rally, and we are sure that it will be just as spec­tac­u­lar when it runs as a gravel rally next month.”
