On 14-16 November, the returning Rally Japan was set to be the season-finale in the 2021 FIA World Rally Championship, but, now the Japanese organiser has been forced to cancel the event by the authorities due to COVID-19 precautions.

For the WRC Promoter, the decision of the Japanese authorities means that they are once again forced to rearrange the calendar and pick up a compensation to the disappointment of the Japanese rally fans. The Italian rally fans are expected to be satisfied, however, nothing is clear with ACI Rally Monza as final organizer, but most indicate that last year’s successful final in and around the track area of Autodromo Nazionale Monza will be held as the last round.

The WRC Promoter is expected to confirm the compensation competition and its date shortly according to other sources.

However, the competition in Italy may be different from last year for this time as the spectators are now allowed to enter due to the restrictions in the country have been lifted earlier this year.
