Preparation and cancellation

The arrival of the Safari Rally was since quite a while ago pushed by the FIA president Jean Todt. A up-and-comer occasion was effectively run in 2019, with WRC wellbeing delegate Michèle Mouton visited the rally. On 27 September 2019, the meeting was offcially declared to be a piece of the title just because since 2002. However, the COVID-19 pandemic delayed its arrival to the title to 2021
