Rally Stuff WRC calendar for 2012 confirmed

The calendar for the FIA World Rally Championship has been confirmed at a meeting of the FIA's World Motor Sport Council in Singapore earlier today.

It features 13 events starting with a return to the legendary Rallye Monte-Carlo in January, which will be running for an 80th time next season, and finishing with Rally de Espana on the Costa Daurada south of Barcelona in early November.

The major developments since the draft schedule was published in early June concern the scheduling of the rounds in Greece and Italy. The Acropolis Rally has been confirmed from 25-27 May following a possibility that it would take place one week later in early June. Italy’s round will take place from 18-21 October.

Rally GB’s mid-September date has also been rubberstamped, the first time it won’t host the season finale since 2005. Rally Finland runs on the first weekend in August having occupied a late July slot in recent years, while Rallye Deutschland takes place on the last weekend of August, one week later than scheduled this season.

New Zealand’s all-gravel encounter is back on the schedule having missed out on a slot this season. The Auckland-based event will take place from 22-24 June.

The calendars for the FIA Production Car World Rally Championship and FIA Super 2000 World Rally Championship have also been published with both series kicking off on Rallye Monte-Carlo. PWRC drivers will nominate six events from a list of seven on which to score points. SWRC competitors will score on seven events out of a possible eight.

Shakedown qualifying set for 2012

Priority 1 and 2 drivers contesting next year's World Rally Championship will be handed one run in shakedown to earn the right to be the first competitor to choose their starting position for the opening day of competition on gravel events.

Changes are being made to the road position rules for 2012 with drivers selecting their starting positions based on the time they record in the pre-event shakedown. While the proposals have been in discussion for several months, the regulation change has now been ratified following a meeting of the FIA’s World Motor Sport council in Singapore last week.

A statement from the sport’s governing body read: “The regulations applicable to Shakedown Qualifying for P1 and P2 drivers on gravel rallies only have been agreed. A two-hour window will be allocated for free practice, during which drivers are permitted a maximum of two passes over the Qualifying Stage. Running in the order of the championship classification, drivers will then be permitted one Qualifying run. Taking into account the stage times, P1 and P2 crews - in order of fastest to slowest - will then select their start positions. Any driver not completing the Qualifying Stage will choose their position last. On subsequent days, all Priority 1 and 2 crews will restart in reverse order of their provisional overall classification.”

There are eight gravel events on next year’s WRC calendar with the first, Rally Mexico, taking place from 8-11 March 2012.

Great event. I'd love to run it, not too 'pencive but very time consuming.

Anyone out there been to Rally Sardinia?
