FIA World Rally Championship

Amendments to the FIA WRC Sporting Regulations include the awarding of additional Power Stage points to Manufacturers, to be scored by the two best-placed drivers nominated by a team and finishing in the top five of the final stage, with the aim to add an additional dimension to the Manufacturers’ battle.

Following Pirelli’s implementation as a new single supplier in 2021, nine additional test days have been allocated to each WRC manufacturer to adapt to the new tyres to be used through the 2021 season.

A number of changes have been adopted to clarify the requirements for the WRC2 class. Participating teams in the category now have to register no later than the closing date of the fifth round of the 2021 season. To score points, a team must enter two cars in a maximum of seven rallies, including a minimum of one round outside of Europe.

WRC2 Drivers and Teams will be required to nominate to score points as they enter an event and as a result, registered Drivers can enter additional rallies as Priority 2 without scoring points. In regards to points scoring, the highest number of points from six of the seven nominated rallies will count.

Owing to the success of the Power Stage points for the WRC, the same format will now be extended to the WRC2 and WRC3 categories.

In WRC3, with the view to restore pre-COVID regulations, the number of rallies counting for the championship has been reinstated from five to seven, with the best five rounds counting for the championship points. Specific requirements have also been added to restrict the class entry to aspiring drivers developing their skills.

To ensure the value of the WRC championship, at least half of the events scheduled on the initial calendar will have to be held for titles to be awarded. In the support championships, the FIA will have the possibility to adjust the minimum number of participations and number of events taken into account, should the number of qualifying events be less than scheduled initially.

The number of counting rounds for the Junior WRC Championship has been returned to five from four set in this year’s regulations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

FIA World Endurance Championship

As previously agreed by e-vote, 2021 FIA World Endurance Championship sporting regulations have been outlined, with stimulating championship growth, creating sporting fairness and cost control as key targets.

A simplified qualifying format will return, with the fastest time of just one driver per car forming the grid instead of the two-driver aggregated time used in recent years. There will be two distinct 10‐minute sessions, one for Hypercar and LMP2 classes and one for LMGTEs (Bronze-rated driver to qualify will be mandatory in LMGTE Am).

No change to LMP2 driver line-ups with at least one Silver or Bronze driver required in each team. There will, however, be a new and specific classification in the LMP2 category for teams who have Bronze drivers.

As the 2021 season will see the introduction of the new Le Mans Hypercar category, there will be more pre- and in-season testing. LMP2 and LMGTE Am classes will also benefit from additional testing mileage.

As part of ongoing efforts to implement cost-saving measures, competitors in Hypercar will be restricted to 40 operational staff or 43 for cars with hybrid systems (except for 24 Hours of Le Mans).

The 24 Hours of Le Mans event will span 10 days rather than two weeks. Scrutineering and pre-race checks will take place on the Friday and Saturday the week before the race and will count both for the Test Day on the Sunday before the race and for the 24 Hours of Le Mans itself. The practice and qualifying sessions have also been revised.

FIA World Rallycross Championship

To ensure the value of FIA Regional Rally Championships titles, all results are now taken into account for the final classification when the championship is held over four events or less, regardless of the criteria required for each championship. Additionally, the format of the championships and rallies has been updated, with a trend towards slightly shorter and more compact rallies in order to reduce costs in the context of the current health crisis.

In the European Rally Championship, the ERC Junior class will be reserved for drivers entered with Rally3 cars, with the objective to reduce season costs and create a more accessible pathway for young drivers coming from two-wheel drive categories. In order to ease this pathway, the FIA ERC promoter will offer attractive prizes for both the ERC3 and ERC Junior Champions.
