For more than a year, RallyMobil members have worked hard to learn about and fulfill FIA and WRC requirements demanded of candidates. The 2018 season began withe the official Candidate Event in Concepción, a city that the organization nominates as headquarters for the possible round and, also, big efforts have been made to allow a positive resolution in favour of Chile.
“We are going in the hope, together with the media, that this will materialize favourably. I believe Chile has striven and succeeded to rigorously meet all of the procedures the FIA commands, in terms of the process itself, which has taken us a bit more than three years. This is a culmination date and a significant challenge for Chile, if this objective is attained it’s an opportunity for the nation,” Felipe Horta assured.
The other big candidate is Japan, which, along with Chile, yearn for a position in the select group of countries that host every year the most outstanding world rally teams’ display.
