Hands up who spotted our April Fool’s joke

WRC Promoter’s dramatic seat swap plan revealed on Wednesday 1 April was greeted with a massive response from WRC fans.

The new rule requiring drivers and co-drivers to tactically change seats for one stage at every rally prompted a flurry of comments across the WRC’s social media platforms.


Some loved the idea, others hated the scheme – while plenty of eagle-eyed readers correctly identified the story as an April Fool’s Day joke. As a result, the Swap Seat Special Stage has now been put on hold until at least 1 April 2021!

We hope our fun story brought a smile to your face during this difficult period.

On a more serious note, we send a strong message of solidarity to all competitors, officials, personnel, volunteers and fans across the globe who are fighting the Covid-19 pandemic together. Please follow medical advice and stay safe and healthy.
