Due to the COVID-19 pandemic currently affecting the world, the fourth edition of the FIA Hill Climb Masters, initially scheduled on 9-11 October 2020 in Braga, Portugal, will be postponed by one year.

As the participation in this biennial Hill Climb contest is essentially conditioned by a selection system based on qualifying results obtained by competitors in national and international championships, it is clear that the correct application of the regulations relating to the eligibility of the drivers is rendered null and void by the cascade of race cancellations which have been rightly decided in light of global health concerns regarding the COVID-19.

For its Nations Cup, the FIA Hill Climb Masters also requires the significant involvement and effort of ASNs and it has been determined that consideration must be given to them, and to the competitors, as they manage the challenges related to this unprecedent crisis, particularly the health and safety of their people.

The decision to postpone the 4th Edition of the FIA Hill Climb Masters to 2021 has been taken after due consultation with the hosting ASN of Portugal and the local event organiser and authorities, in order to give the competition the best chance to generate the same enthusiasm and excitement that defined its 3rd edition in Gubbio, Italy, in 2018.
