MUGLA,Turkey

The shakedown stage of the 2020 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) in Turkey was completed.

Rally Turkey started with the participation of 130 drivers from 19 countries.

On the first day of the organization, drivers took 4.70 kilometers (2.9 miles) to test their cars in the shakedown stage in Turkey’s southwestern Mugla province.

Local and foreign spectators attended the shakedown stage to support the drivers and take some photos.

The round five of this year’s Rally Turkey will take place from Sept. 18-20.

Due to restrictions imposed to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, all stages, scheduled in the towns of Datca, Marmaris, and Ula, will be held without fans.
