Local Finnish news are reporting that the decision on a possible Arctic Winter Rally replacement for Sweden’s slot in the WRC is due to meet its deadline next Wednesday 13th January.
Both budget and the levels of COVID-19 are the considerations here. Reported new cases of COVID remain a constant each day and have not spiked significantly over the past few weeks, but a close eye is to be kept on the numbers.
The 56th Arctic Lapland rally which is to take place soon (14th-16th Jan) with approx. 120 competitors expected to take park; will be a non-spectator event behind closed doors. The organisers are reported to be making a conscious effort to ensure access is difficult for any non-complying fans.
