Default WMSC confirms "Twinned" rallies for WRC

Certainly adds to the challenge..and the confusion.

WMSC confirms 'twinned' rallies

By Tim Redmayne December 9th 2005, 16:03 GMT

The World Motor Sport Council has confirmed the 'twinned' rallies for next season.

Cars entering one event must use the same specified components in the other events of risk facing a time penalty.

As in Formula One, engines had to last two rallies in 2005, however the events did not necessarily follow each other chronologically and the FIA specified the twinned events for logistical reasons. Only two events were twinned for chassis last season.

The 2006 twinned list only specifies 10 rallies for engines and chassis, with the introduction of twinned events for gearboxes. There will also be a limitation on other mechanical parts across linked events.

The FIA also confirmed that the of Rally New Zealand has been moved to November 17-19.

Fill statement from the FIA:


The following rallies will be linked for engine and chassis in 2006:

Monte Carlo and Sweden
Spain and France
Italy and Greece
Germany and Finland
Australia and New Zealand

For these rallies the engine and chassis will be sealed together and it will not be possible to separate them, except under the supervision of the FIA. Each car will use the same engine and chassis for both rallies.

The following rallies will be linked for the gearbox in 2006:

Italy and Greece
Cyprus and Turkey
Australia and New Zealand

On the first rally of the link, two gearbox and differential assemblies per car will be sealed. On the second rally of the link, one gearbox and differential assembly per car will be sealed.

Did they not notice how much this raised costs in F1?

This is a horrible idea and I am sad to see it come to rally.
