Although the dates of the events have yet to be finalised, the WMSC has adopted the calendar proposed by the WRC Commission.
In addition to Australia, Argentina, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Italy, Mexico, Monte Carlo, Portugal, Spain and Sweden will all host a round of the WRC in 2013.
The definitive calendar will be published once logistics and the calendars of other FIA championships are taken into account to avoid date clashes where possible.
In a further development, candidate events will be considered for the 2014 calendar providing they are assessed for suitability prior to April 2013. Brazil and South America have indicated their interest in taking part in this process.
