Scheduled to run as round seven from 11-13 July, the event’s inclusion on the ERC roster had always been subject to the signing of an agreement between the rally organisers and the ERC promoter Eurosport Events.
Despite extensive efforts to ensure that the rally remained on the ERC schedule, the event organisers have informed that they are not in a position to sign the agreement for financial reasons.
With no replacement rally planned, drivers will now count their best four scores from the first six rounds and their best four results from the last six rallies.
The revised ERC calendar for 2013 is as follows:
01 :International Jännerrallye (Austria) / Asphalt/snow / 3-5 January 2013
02: Rally Liepāja-Ventspils (Latvia) / Gravel/snow / 1-3 February 2013
