Postponement of the Tuareg Rallye due to COVID-19
the Tuareg Rallye due to COVID-19
Due to the international situation and the unforeseen spread of the Corona Virus (COVID-19), we have decided to postpone the Tuareg Rally 2020.
Like you, we have spent a lot of time, money and effort in the last weeks and
months preparing and conducting the Tuareg Rallye. We have been looking
forward to a great rally in a breathtaking landscape and a foreign country.
Due to the current spread of the Corona virus worldwide and currently increasingly in Europe and Africa, we unfortunately have to postpone the Tuareg Rallye 2020.
As the situation is still very dynamic at the moment, a safe arrival and execution of the event is not possible at the moment.
Essential influencing factors are:
-Possible prior infection of participants and transmission of the virus during the rally to other participants
-Insecurity of the participants
-Possible quarantine measures and return travel problems during and after the rally
-Logistical problems with the arrival before the rally (first ferries have stopped connections in the Mediterranean, flights are cancelled, ...)
-Individual participants are already unable to travel to the event (Italy) due to quarantine measures
-neighbouring countries (Morocco) have banned all foreign sporting events
In order to provide security for our participants, we unfortunately see ourselves forced to postpone the event to a time when a safe execution can be guaranteed.
After extensive consultation with the German health authorities, the responsible doctors of the rally as well as the organisation team of the rally, a postponement was advocated in consensus.
We very much regret this decision. Everyone involved in the organisation of the rally has invested a lot of energy and time. Together we have made great efforts to make this rally a reality.What is the next step?
A new date will be announced as soon as the situation concerning the Corona virus pandemic is resolved.
The scheduled deadline for vehicles to be handed in to the organisation for the weekend will be cancelled.
What happens with my entry fee?
Your entry fee will be automatically transferred in full to the new
Many of you have expressed concerns about the danger of the pandemic. In this exceptional situation, an international pandemic, the authorities also believe that they must do everything possible to prevent the spread of the virus.
Even though many of you are disappointed, we ask for your understanding for this safety-conscious decision of the authorities which ultimately also serves our safety.
With sporty greetings,
Your Tuareg Rally Team
