World Rally Championship

SEASON 2018

2018 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.

 

Last season marked the dawn of another new era with the introduction of new technical regulations which resulted in the closest and most unpredictable competition in years, underlining the success of the regulation changes. Over the course of the season there were seven different winners, no fewer than three of whom claimed maiden WRC victories, and each of the four manufacturers sealed at least two victories.

 

2018 is set to deliver more spectacular action with Citroën, Hyundai and Toyota all looking to outpace the reigning FIA World Rally Champions, M-Sport Ford. The calendar once again takes in 13 events around the globe, but new for 2018 is Rally Turkey which returns to the series for the first time since 2010.

 

Behind the dynamic state-of-the-art world rally cars competing for outright victory, there are 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 cars, and the FIA Junior WRC Championship where the up and coming stars of the sport can showcase their talent in identical Ford Fiesta R2s in an ‘arrive and drive’ five-round series. The FIA RGT Cup will also continue to be run over five WRC and European Rally Championship events.
