2022 FIA World Rally-Raid Championship

2022 marks an exciting new chapter for cross-country rallying, as the discipline becomes the seventh World Championship under the governance of the FIA.

The five-round inaugural FIA World Rally-Raid Championship kicks off with the famous Dakar Rally in Saudi Arabia, an epic adventure in the spectacular sand and dunes of the Empty Quarter. The Championship remains in the Middle East for the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge before heading to central Asia and Kazakhstan, where the arid scrublands and deserts of the world’s largest landlocked country provide another different challenge. Rally Andalucia marks the World Championship’s visit to Europe, while Rallye du Maroc on the African continent rounds out the season with its wide range of technical, fast and sandy tracks, as well as dunes.

Revolutionary new technical regulations, in support of the FIA’s long-term environmental strategy, have been introduced marking the debut of alternative and experimental technologies in the discipline. Regulations for T5 prototype trucks have also been introduced and, in general, all regulations pertaining to cross-country vehicles have been aligned to ensure inclusivity and consistency for competitors across all events around the world.

For the first time, world titles will be awarded in cross-country, with three titles for Drivers, Co-Drivers and Manufacturers. Competitors across all groups will however continue to fight for category honours. A new co-efficient point-scoring system for Cross-Country Rallies and Marathon Rallies also reflects the difference between the events, and increased Leg points for the top five crews in each category will bolster competition.
