While the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause problems around the world, Rally Finland organisers are still working hard and planning on to host the round that should signal the restart for the 2020 FIA World Rally Championship, and for this year they are planning a new Power Stage.

The restart of the remaining season will be hopefully be in early-August, with the current dates set for 6-9 August. Even if new restrictions will come from the Finnish Government, they have a back up plan of hosting it in September.

For 70th anniversary there will be a new Power Stage that will be run on the Sunday afternoon; the Laajavuori stage that was featured in the 2014 edition will appear back as the Power Stage.
