WRC 2022 to launch on January 15

The new hybrid era of the World Rally Championship is to be launched on Saturday, January 15 in Salzburg.

The three new Rally1 cars and their liveries will be unveiled during the event at Red Bull’s Hangar-7. Newly elected FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem will attend the launch.

WRC promotor managing director Jona Siebel said: “It’s fitting these ground-breaking changes should be incorporated for the WRC’s 50th season. The new Rally1 cars look fantastic.”

The event will be live-streamed via WRC’s official channels. The 2022 WRC season starts just five days after the launch event with Rally Monte Carlo (20 – 23 January).
