After a revamp for 2020, WRC 2 is the championship’s primary support category and the principal feeder for ambitious competitors targeting the final step to a World Rally Car drive.
The category is for manufacturer-backed teams and independent teams approved by the FIA.
Competitors must tackle eight rounds, comprising a minimum of six and a maximum of seven European rounds and at least one rally outside Europe - either Mexico or Japan. All eight scores count. Titles will be awarded for drivers, co-drivers and teams.
The championship is open to R5-specification four-wheel drive cars from the Rally 2 class of technical regulations. They are less modified than World Rally Cars and power and performance are balanced through turbocharger air restrictors, minimum weight stipulations and price caps.
Look out for: Citroën C3, Ford Fiesta, Hyundai i20 and Skoda Fabia.
