This year's event, scheduled for inclusion on the calendar for the weekend of July 11-13, had been subject to the signing of a formal agreement between organisers and promoters, but the deal was not struck.

With no replacement rally planned, drivers will now count their best four scores from the first six rounds and their best four results from the last six rallies.

“We have tried everything to find a number of solutions to keep the San Marino Rally on the ERC calendar but, unfortunately, this has not been possible with the new management of San Marino’s motorsport federation,” said François Ribeiro, Motorsport Development Director, Eurosport Events.

“We regret the idea of losing a compact gravel event in Italy, but the cut in public funding went beyond expectations.”
