WRC: The way of scoring changes from the new season

The Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) has decided to introduce a new rating scale in 2024 in the WRC Rally, but without providing details, in order to breathe new life into the championship.

The failure to attract new manufacturers or even retain its most talented drivers after Kale Rovanpera decided not to defend his world title next year has seen the World Rally Championship lose momentum. Aware of the problem – as reported by the French newspaper “Equipe”, an attempt is being made to restart.

A working group, led by two former co-drivers, Robert Reid, also vice-president of the FIA, and David Richards, president of the British federation, was set up to reflect on the direction the WRC should be given.

The FIA ​​announced today (6/12) that the World Council meeting in Baku approved the principle of modifying the points allocation scale, with the aim of “enhancing excitement and competition, particularly on Sunday”.

Details of the new scoring system will be announced soon. The World Council also accepted the bid of Korean tire manufacturer Hankook to become the WRC’s exclusive supplier from 2025, replacing Pirelli for three years.
