the Sporting Regulations of the Championship of the World Rally application in the
next season. Between the same figure the variation in output order,

remaining will be used in the reverse order from which mark the classification of the rally between the
priority drivers (P1). In the case of abandonment, and application of the standard ‘Rally
2‘, will begin at the end of the P1 group, while the rest of the vehicles
made by the order of classification of the rally.

to participate in the contest with World Rally Cars prior to the new generation
vehicles. In a system similar to that already used in WRC2, and that has not been
changed in spite of the rumors that so indicated, each crew will
choose from seven rallies, which will collect the six best results. In case
not to be at least five competitors registered in the Trophy WRC, not
shall be granted to the pilot who finishes in first position.
