Mountain Gorilla Rally, Rwanda’s round of the African Rally Championship, has been rescheduled due to the continued coronavirus conditions, organisers announced.
The event was due to take place this year on March 18-21 and was set to be the second round of this year’s African Rally Championship.
However, as coronavirus cases mount and the capital Kigali currently under lockdown, Rwanda Automobile Club (RAC), the event organisers, reached a decision to push back the event to a later date.
