World Rally Championship

SEASON 2017

2017 World Rally Championship

The FIA World Rally Championship was first established in 1973 and is widely regarded as one of the most challenging and diverse motor sport disciplines.

 

2017 marks the dawn of another new era in the sport with the introduction of new technical regulations resulting in more distinctive, powerful and dramatic looking World Rally Cars. Hyundai remains in the series with its i20 Coupe, as does M-Sport with the Ford Fiesta. However, two former FIA World Rally Champions return to the Championship this season; multiple winning French marque Citroën with the C3 and automotive giant Toyota, who will compete with the Yaris.

 

There are also three support Championships for less modified cars; the FIA WRC 2 Championship for four-wheel drive cars, the FIA WRC 3 Championship for two-wheel drive vehicles, and the FIA Junior WRC Championship where youngsters have the opportunity to showcase their talent in a cost-effective six-round calendar using Ford Fiesta R2s. A new FIA WRC Trophy has also been introduced for drivers and co-drivers participating in pre-2017 specification World Rally Cars, and the existing FIA RGT Cup will continue to be run over five WRC and European Rally Championship events.
