The duo Madeiran six times champion, Alexandre Camacho and Pedro Calado, had the misfortune of suffering an accident with the new Citroen C3 R5, in the 2nd stage, thus ruling them out of the Calheta Rally.

Due to the current pandemic situation, the race was criticized for not complying with the social distance between the spectators. In an official statement, the management of the Clube Sports da Madeira states that the circulating pictures were taken “in a perspective that does not represent reality”, however “with a clear conscience”.
