    FIA World Rally Championship

    "In the Sporting Regulations, the time to repair retired P1 cars was increased to a maximum of four hours with the option to split this window into a maximum of two slots (the amount of time per section being at the discrepancy of the team). This will enable team personnel to optimize the workload before and after the evening service and allow additional time for them to work on the car, due to more complex procedures with Rally1 hybrid vehicles.

    Clarification was brought to the high-voltage operational safety procedures for quarantine, recovery supervision and “red car” exercise, reflecting the best practice developed on the basis of the experience gathered at WRC events since the launch of the Rally1 in January.

    With a view to saving costs for the organisers and following sensible sustainability policies, road books must now be available digitally before the rally, as opposed to printed and sent by mail to the competitors.

    In the Technical Regulations, proposals related to the opening of the rear window and roof vent of Rally1 cars, which require the support of the Homologation Commission, were approved to address the challenges of cockpit temperatures experienced at the last rallies.

    FIA Rally Commission

    Technical and Homologation Regulations for the fully electric FIA Rally5e cars were approved, with the group to be divided into two classes depending on the car’s battery capacity (lower or bigger than 60 kWh). This first-ever category of electric rally cars aims to remain close to production models, in the same way as the Rally5 for ICE cars."
    If in doubt, flat out!

    Yep I think Alpine said they would give it a try if there was electricity involved.

    As I said before I think the idea of "as cheap as possible" electric car like the e-corsa is extremely boring for spectators. At minimum they need to have noticably more power than similar class petrol cars.(top speed can be limited in rules/electronically).

    A Rally2 -like class similar to Baumschlagers Fabia is imo a much better idea.

    That'll come in time, but it's not what Corsa-e, Rally5/e etc are trying to be.

    on the other side, for manus is perfect: low cost, easily accessible marketing. look-alike motorsport version of street ev.
    apart from m-sport that is just low cost car to sell, doesn't matter what the engine is! : P

    Looking more & more unlikely for a WRC round in NI for next year, Germany however are in talks to comeback sooner rather than later.
    If in doubt, flat out!

    Terrible same. The last best chance for a WRC rally to ever appear again in the UK seems to have gone.
