Isle of Tenerife Rally Without Spectators

Presentation of the 46th Isle of Tenerife Rally

The Official Presentation of the 46th Rallye Orvecame Isla Tenerife - due to take place this weekend - has been held to the media and fans, although at the time of the presentation, the event was pending permission from the Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands. Organisers announced Wednesday that, "We have received from the Health Department of the Canary Islands Government the pre-authorization for the celebration of the 46th Rallye Orvecame Isla Tenerife WITHOUT PUBLIC." Since Tenerife is still at red alert for COVID-19 the event will have to be watched via the media and not in person.

On Friday, October 30, the administrative and technical verifications take place, then on Saturday 31st will be the day of the competition, with 9 timed sections, starting at 07:30, with the first car due to reach the finish line 12 hour later. There are 91 teams in total. 

And this edition has the largest number of female participants in the rally's history: 12 in total, 4 drivers and 8 co-drivers, thanks to an initiative to promote gender equality.
