The director of the race asked the press office at 16:30 to publish the following judgment:
After SS 4 (Alsómocsolád-Mecsekpölöske) we summarized the experiences of the judges and the drivers. We watched the recordings of the internal cameras and we listened to the racers’ opinions, so we decided to cancel SS 8, because it can’t be organised safely.
The stage is taken out from the program, but there is no change in the time table.
We kindly ask you to not go to that stage.
