21.05.2020 - Motorsport Italia is working relentlessly ahead of the Rally di Roma Capitale 2020. The working group led by Max Rendina has kept believing in the chance of running the event and, while Italy stopped due to the lockdown, it has devised and analyzed innovative solutions and strategies and planned important changes that could allow the event valid for the 2020 FIA ERC European Rally Championship and Italian Rally Championship in compliance with ACI Sport, FIA, Eurosport Events and Government regulations.
With two months to go before the event, the Rally di Roma Capitale looks very different from the rally we have seen so far, as it will have to follow all the indications of the Medical protocols that are changing sporting events and everyday life of all of us. This will require some technical and logistic changes but, most importantly, great collaboration from everyone.
Fans and staff will have to follow the correct behaviours and implement all the needed procedures to make this event a reference on the national and international level, an example of how much the world of rallying loves this sport and is ready to accept important changes to make this discipline restart and excite our enthusiasm again.
Recently, a web platform is being set up to allow registration and control of all the people connected to the event: organizers, teams, drivers, staff, media and fans.
Through this platform, that will be made available on Tuesday, May 26th on www.rallydiromacapitale.it alongside a detailed user guide, fans will have to register and specify the zones they chose to watch the rally from.
Motorsport Italia is setting up an important check and prevention structure aiming to provide the great spectacle that the Rally di Roma Capitale is capable of. Such a great spectacle will be possible only thanks to a responsible behaviour of all of us.
This is a cultural change that will redesign the rally world known before the Covid-19 coronavirus emergency. This change will rely on all fans and enthusiasts to deliver the due efforts to allow, not only the Rally di Roma, but also the whole sector, to restart in this atypical season 2020.
