The Simba Union Club will hold the first competition in the 2020 Kenya National Rally Championship (KNRC) calendar on February 8 and 9.

The next two rounds of the series will be held outside Nairobi as the Rift Valley Motor Sports Club (RVMSC) of Nakuru will stage the next event on March 14 and 15, followed by another one in Mombasa to be hosted by the Mombasa Motor Club (MMC) on April 4 and 5.

The return of the Safari Rally to the 2020 FIA World Rally Championship calendar is the most anticipated motorsport event in the local calendar. The Safari Rally will be held from July 1 to 19.

The event will host 19 competitive stages, including a spectator section at the Kasarani Stadium. The rest of the action will be based around Naivasha.

The Kenya Motor Sports Club will have its event on June 6 and 7, followed by Nanyuki Rally Group on August 29 and 30, Rallye Sports Club (October 3 and 4) and Vintage Car Club of Kenya on November 7 and 8.
