    Besides that, it's his birthday today.
    I know Petr personally. I am not doubting his word.

    Yesterday the president of the Portuguese motoring federation said that the cancellation was due to financial reasons.

    Here in portuguese:

    Hard words

    Amorim "runs over" GDC and its president
    "The guess club"

    In an interview with RTP-Açores, the president of the Portuguese Federation of Automobilism and Karting was devastating with Grupo Desportivo Comercial and its president Rui Moniz.
    Amorim states that the club was in a bad way and it does not know if the FIA ​​and the promoter will continue to give the club credibility, - «The Rally dos Açores was very bad in the photo after all this happened».
    The president of the FPAK states «The Rally if it had to be held in March would not have happened, Covid was a scapegoat» and Rui Moniz denies that the rally was canceled and not postponed and explains why, the proof to be postponed has to a new contract can be concluded.
    Amorim considered that the lack of police was only a "fait divers" to cancel the rally.
    Ni Amorim even says that the club has no credibility whatsoever and that he does not believe in the club himself - "The club has a new board that has already applied for two tests, has already canceled two tests, the club has not done anything yet".

    Azores Rally

    Decision to cancel rally “was taken together”

    Eurosport Events coordinator says Azores Rallye is not at risk in the ERC and maintains confidence in the GDC
    The decision to cancel the Azores Rallye 2020 was taken by Grupo Desportivo Comercial (GDC) in conjunction with Eurosport Events (EE), says the general coordinator of the promoter of the European Rally Championship (ERC), the Frenchman Jean- Baptiste Ley.
    Speaking to the Açoriano Oriental, Ley acknowledges the “incredible work” that the GDC did to try to save the rally and that EE followed the process closely.
    “Eurosport Events and GDC have been in close contact since the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis: first when we had to postpone the rally from March to September; and then during all the days of the pandemic. We jointly decided to wait until the last moment to make this difficult decision to cancel the rally, ”he said.
    A definite point for the person responsible for the ERC is the continuation of the Azores rally on the calendar, stating that “the cancellation of Azores Rallye 2020 does not jeopardize future collaboration with the ERC, as EE and GDC are linked by a contract of three years". This contract is maintained until 2022, but it is “extensible”, he adds.
    On the recent controversy between 'Comercial' and the Portuguese Federation of Motoring and Karting (FPAK), which, through its president Ni Amorim, accused the GDC of lack of transparency and of having canceled the rally for financial reasons, Jean-Baptiste Ley puts water on the boil and points out that “GDC, FPAK and EE did their best to manage this unprecedented crisis. All parties tried to help with the situation and I would like to pay tribute to Rui Moniz, who was the one who faced all the difficulties ”.
    The Frenchman responsible for the European rally says that the relationship with the GDC president remains "very strong and reliable, despite the difficulties".
