The organizing committee of the Rallye de Charlevoix forced to cancel the 2020 edition!

La Malbaie, October  7, 2020.-  After having obtained all the  required authorizations earlier this summer to be  able  to present, according  to the  new  standards (and  even  beyond), the  2020 edition of the  Rallye de  Charlevoix, the  organizing committee announces today  that  it is forced to cancel this 2020 edition which was to take place on October 23 and 24.

The event  was to be the second round  of the 2020  Canadian Rally Championship and  a record number   of entries  was expected. Unfortunately,  recent provincial  government restrictions  no longer offers the necessary guarantees of travel for people in Charlevoix.

“We have  worked hard to prepare this event,  unfortunately the new measures no longer allow us to organize the  Rallye de  Charlevoix 2020.  We are  disappointed to arrive at such a conclusion but we do not have  the choice” indicates the event  coordinator, Samuel Tremblay.

“The  work of everyone on  the  committee  has been intense  since  the  spring,  to  put  in  place safety measures and  share our best practices with other  events. Public Health then  gave  us the authorizations on those measures, which protected both  the  local population – our top priority – as well  as the  competitors  and  everyone else  involved.  Unfortunately,  the  recent escalation  in cases caused the  government to come  back  on their decision” said the  promoter  of the  event, Richard  Berthiaume.  The  2020  edition  was to  be  held  behind  closed  doors, which  did  not include spectator areas.

The organizing committee would like to thank the municipalities involved for their unwavering support, and  in  particular,  the  town of La Malbaie  where  the  rally  headquarters is  located,  as well  as the  volunteers  and  partners, commercial  and  technical,  and  of course the  competitors already registered. The committee would also like to thank the organizers of the Canadian Association of RallySport for their cooperation and understanding.

The next edition of the Rallye de Charlevoix will be held October 22-23,  2021
