List of World Rally Championship rallies

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The list of World Rally Championship rallies includes all rally competitions that have been part of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) schedule. It does not include rallies that were only part of the FIA Cup for Drivers, the predecessor to the drivers' world championship, such as the Arctic Rally, the Scottish Rally and the Southern Cross Rally.

From 1994 to 1996, the World Rally Championship had an event rotation system. The Swedish Rally did not have full WRC status in the 1994 season, the Rally Finland in 1995, and the Monte Carlo Rally and the RAC Rally in 1996. Instead, these rallies were part of the 2-litre "Formula 2" championship that was contested from 1993 to 1999.

The World Rally Championship had a new "Round Rotation" System in 2009 and 2010 in order to attract candidate rallies to have a chance to be a WRC event.
