Only two weeks before the start date the organisers have reluctantly had to postpone the rally until 1-5 November after it became clear they would not get the required authorisations from the tourist district authorities. This event which comprises 1200 km in total, includes 430 km in 29 timed special stages and normally compliments the Winter version in January. Previously run in mostly warm, dry and dusty conditions through the remote forests, it could take on a different character during the new late autumn dates. Info at www.romania-historic-rally.com.
