The wait is over – WRC is back!

Let’s be honest, the last two months have dragged for all of us.

A week without the FIA World Rally Championship is miserable, the last eight have been tough. Fear not. The good times are ready to roll.

Moving forwards, we have four WRC rounds lined up in the next couple of months. That covers roughly the same period of time from Rally Sweden to today,

The action starts with this week’s Croatia Rally (21 - 24 April), then the WRC turns gravel crazy and we’re into Portugal (19 - 22 May), Sardinia (2 - 5 June) and Kenya (23 - 26 June).

A fortnight on from Safari and we’re on the fast gravel in Estonia (14 - 17 July). Three more weeks and we’re at Jyväskylä for Secto Rally Finland (4 - 7 August). And who’s not looking forward to seeing the most advanced rally cars ever in their natural habitat?
