This short-term measure was proposed in order to prevent inequalities between the WRC Manufacturer Teams regarding their capability to conduct tests in light of the ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic and varying restrictions that apply in the different countries.

The suspension of testing shall last until 31st May 2020 or until the FIA Rally Department can confirm that local measures confirm an equal opportunity for all registered Manufacturer Teams to test.
