    Henning, Yazeed and Bertelli? But yeah, out of the works drivers, only those two without a win. And it will take a while until we see the next maiden winner. Probably not this year at all.

    Outside of those, NORF 2003 was also entered by future winners Latvala, Hirvonen, Duval and Meeke. Between them, there should be about 280 wins.

    Finland 2002 also had 12 rally winners (Grönholm, Burns, Rovanperä, Sainz, McRae, Delecour, Mäkinen, Eriksson, Schwarz, Kankkunen, Loeb, Salonen). And you can actually argue whether that should be 13 (same goes for 2003 as well) as Loix won in Portugal in 1996, when it was a W2L event.

    Acropolis 1984 had 11 winners (Röhrl, Alen, Vatanen, Mouton, Salonen, Mikkola, Mehta, Blomqvist, Toivonen, Nicolas, Warmbold), as did Monte Carlo 1994 (Kankkunen, Sainz, Auriol, Biasion, Schwarz, Delecour, McRae, Eriksson, Ragnotti, Oreille, Timo Mäkinen).

    edit. I think we have a winner... Monte Carlo 1983 had 13 winners: Röhrl, Mikkola, Vatanen, Alen, Mouton, Toivonen, Andruet, Blomqvist, Ragnotti, Frequelin, Therier, Salonen, Warmbold.

    Loeb was actually one event short of being a WRC winner. As his debut win in Germany was a few weeks later.

    13 guys from 1983 Monte is very impressive though and will be tough to beat I'd assume.

    Also 12 in Portugal 2001 (and several 10 and 11); besides the mentioned 83 MC, also 13 in ‘77 RAC and ‘02 Network Q. Digging a bit more, we’ll probably find a MC or GB rally with a 14 record…btw, how about the event with larger entry of world champs?

    PS: before the mandatory entries (mid 00’s ?), Portugal, Finland and Greece were always popular among manus, but MC and GB were clearly (and understandably) their favorite WRC events.

    Mandatory entry started in 1994 with the cut down calendar and event rotation.

    Apart from the other RACs mentioned before, also 1981 RAC had 13 past event winners. (Toivonen, Vatanen, Alén, Frequelin, Mikkola, Salonen, Waldegård, Ragnotti, Mouton, Kulläng, Eklund, Blomqvist and Clark.)

    1991 RAC would still get my vote as the all time best WRC rally entry list. With the exception of Waldegård and Röhrl, all World Rally Champions from 1979 to 1999 took part in that rally, all in official factory cars. Lancia, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Ford, Mazda and Nissan all brought cars to that rally. That rally also saw Colin McRae spectacularly leading a WRC event for the first time as well as deciding a third title for Kankkunen, which was a new record at the time. What a rally.
