The World Rally Championship has detailed plans for a first-ever race in Belgium, while the Motocross World Championship (MXGP) has announced that three triple-header events in Italy will replace postponed races.

The WRC has added the Ypres Rally to its 2020 calendar and the event will take place from November 19-22. It will serve as the eighth and final round of the season and will replace Rally Japan, which has been called off due to border entry restriction policies imposed by the Japanese government.
