The race, which becomes the second-highest score for the Portuguese championship, takes place between the 3rd and 5th of July and goes on the road with a renewed format to comply with the new guidelines.
The new normal forced Escuderia Castelo Branco to make some changes to put the 2020 edition of the Castelo Branco Rally on the road.
The race, which scores for the Portuguese Rally Championship, for the Classics, for the Beginners, for the RGT, for the R4-KIT, for the Rally Center Championship, for the Kumho Challenge and for the Challenge R2 & You, hit the road on Saturday afternoon, July 4th, and Sunday, July 5th.
In total, there are seven special classification tests that total 99.69 kilometers against the stopwatch and a total of 256.17 kilometers.
The assistance park will be re-established in Castelo Branco but will not be accessible to the public. In fact, the race will go on the road but without considering areas where the spectators will be able to watch the cars pass.
On the first day of competition, the competitors will compete in the southwest of the main city of Beira Baixa, with the passage, twice, in the section of Vilas Ruivas, and a passage in Foz do Cobrão. On Sunday, participants head to the northwest of Castelo Branco. There, they dispute Dáspera – Sesmo – Salgueiral and Sto. André das Tojeiras. Both specials are run twice.
Contrary to what is usual, and according to the current contingency measures, there will be no place for the traditional and always spectacular super-special in Castelo Branco.
