Rally New Zealand
Since the FIA World Rally Championship left New Zealand’s shores in 2012, rumours have long swirled that the series would one day return.
Finally, in 2020, the circus will come back in what is currently a one-off journey for the top-flight rally championship.
Until now, the championship could only go to so many countries, meaning some had to go before New Zealand could come back.
The 2020 season will see the return of New Zealand alongside Rally Japan and the highly anticipated Safari Rally in Kenya. Spain, France and Australia are omitted at the expense of the returning rallies in what is still a 14-round calendar.
