The Azores Rallye will not take place this year due to the lack of human and material resources to ensure that it takes place without the presence of spectators. It was set to be the next event on the FIA European Rally Championship schedule in September.

Event organiser Grupo Desportivo Comercial announced that the rally has been postponed until 2021 due to the potential compromise of safety for the competitors as well as public health in the region.

Grupo Desportivo Comercial deeply regrets the postponement of the rally, sharing the disappointment of its affiliates and the fans of motorsport, in particular, and the Azoreans in general, certain that they will understand the decision now made.

Eurosport Events is now focused on concluding discussions with the organiser of Rally Fafe Montelongo and the Portuguese ASN, FPAK, in the hope an agreement can be reached for this event to join the 2020 FIA ERC calendar.

ERC say discussions between Eurosport Events and the Rally Fafe Montelongo organiser were already underway over the possible inclusion of the event on the 2020 calendar as an additional round.

With an agreement yet to be reached, the next round on the FIA European Rally Championship calendar is the Cyprus Rally on 16-18 October.
