The American Rally Association is mindful of the current situation surrounding the Coronavirus, or COVID-19, that has affected daily activities in communities across the world. Several high-profile events, including many sporting events, have restricted access, adjusted schedules and procedures, or even canceled entirely. Just this afternoon, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a pandemic.
With the second ARA national event on the schedule next week in Missouri, series and event officials are having continuous dialogue regarding all aspects of the popular Rally in the 100 Acre Wood. The event is one that brings in teams, fans, media, sponsors and officials from across North America, with connections to families around the world.
Currently, there has been no decision made regarding cancelation, rescheduling or limitations surrounding the event. We will continue to inform our rally community of any changes made to the 100 Acre Wood schedule, as well as the schedule of upcoming events such as the Olympus Rally in Washington.
It is not our goal to spread fear, nor is it our desire to act irresponsibly. It is our desire to hold world class rally events for as long as possible.
