The World Rally Championship (WRC) has confirmed a 13-round schedule for 2024.
- Poland returns to the calendar for the first time since 2017
- European Rally Championship (ERC) host Latvia steps up to host WRC
- Mexico and Estonia drop off the calendar
A Middle Eastern round for 2023 has not come to fruition, with Saudi Arabia having reportedly been in pole position to secure an event. Plans to race in the US and Argentina are also developing, although these may not debut until 2025.
Jona Siebel, managing director of WRC Promoter, said: “We're eagerly anticipating another action-packed season in 2024 with a calendar that not only celebrates our esteemed traditions, but also propels us into an exciting future.
“Our return to Poland and our debut in Latvia underscore our commitment to delivering a fresh and exciting WRC experience for fans and competitors alike.”
WRC still has two races until the end of its 2023 season, with the Central European Rally from 26th to 29th October followed by the season-ending Rally Japan from 16th to 19th November.
