The national STPR rally did not take place in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions and that year was canceled when the state permit was not received on August 5. The national rally was to take place on September 17-18.
Thanks to the state permit system, the STPR was denied more and more use of forest roads for rally cars and spectators, to the point that it became more difficult to organize the rally. national. National and local politicians and officials joined forces to find out why this happened to allow STPR to compete in the National Rally Series again in 2022.
