What’s new for 2022

  • The rally follows the WRC’s traditional four-day format after running over three days 12 months ago.
  • Uniquely, the start ceremony will be held in the service park on Thursday afternoon, immediately before competitors tackle the 7.34km Nieuwkerke shakedown.
  • Friday’s opening Vleteren speed test is new – the only stage of the rally which was not driven in 2021.
  • Final day tests at the Spa-Francorchamps race circuit have been scrapped and the rally will stay in north-west Belgium for the duration.
  • A revised Kemmelberg switches from the opening leg to the last to become the rally-closing Wolf Power Stage.
