The Stannic Rally Championship calendar for the rest of the season has been finalised.

This follows the cancellation of the Rally of South Africa which was scheduled to be the third round of the championship. The Project: WRC Rally, however, has been renamed the Rally of South Africa and forms part of the calendar which has been ratified by Motorsport SA.

Planning for the Rally of South Africa is well under way and the event will be observed for possible inclusion in the FIA African Continent Rally Championship next year. The event will also be observed as a candidate for FIA World Rally Championship status in the next two or three years.

"With the finalisation of the calendar everything is back to normal," said Rally Management CC project manager Charmaine Fortune. "With planning for all the events in various stages of completion we don't foresee any major problems over the rest of the season."

The Stannic Rally Championship itinerary for the rest of the season is:

July 16 and 17 - VW Rally (AMSC); August 13 and 14 - Mountain Trial (SCC Bloemfontein); September 17 and 18 - Stannic Great North Rally (PMC); October 22 to 24 - Rally of South Africa (Project:WRC); November 13 and 14 - Stannic Gauteng Rally (SCC East Rand).
