adventure that is the rally and the WRC. We'll even take you beyond the
service park and racetrack to experience the best drivers in the world, the
craziest fans, snow, asphalt, boulders, the toughest weather conditions and
the roaring sound of the engines - here on VW RALLYTHEWORLD.com.

The FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) pits cars and drivers in a series of
two, three or four-day events though some of the toughest, and most varied,
conditions on the planet. 1 2
The roads on this epic motorsport adventure range from the ice and snow of
Scandinavia to the stifling heat of Greece - over surfaces including packed
ice, smooth asphalt and boulder-strewn rocky tracks.
Unsurprisingly, the series is widely regarded as the most challenging
motorsport competition in the world. Established in its current format in
1973, in 2013 drivers and manufacturers will battle it out for the 41st
annual drivers' and manufacturers' championship trophies on rallies spread
across 13 countries.
The competition itself is deceptively simple. Each rally is split into a
number (typically between 15 and 25) of 'special stages' which are run on
closed roads. Drivers tackle these stages one car at a time in an effort to
complete them in the shortest time. Competitors drive to and from each
special stage on normal roads, observing normal traffic regulations. During
the special stages, a co-driver, or navigator, reads pace notes to alert
the driver to the conditions on the road ahead.
The cars competing at the top level of the sport are known as World Rally
Cars, and are based on four-cylinder 1.6 litre production cars. But while
they might resemble the models found in a high street showroom, upgrades to
the engine, transmission and suspension, mean a WRC car is a turbocharged, four-wheel drive monster that
develops more than 300bhp and masses of torque. Regardless of the road
surface, these machines can accelerate from a standing start to 100kph in
around three seconds. Their top speed depends upon the gearing chosen for
each rally, but 220kph is not unusual.
But World Rally Cars are not the only type of vehicle on the WRC stages.
The championship also includes three support series for different classes
of car. For 2013, the categories have been modified and are now WRC-2,
WRC-3 and Junior WRC.
The WRC-2 Championship is the FIA's principal series for near-showroom spec
four-wheel drive, turbocharged cars.
This replaces the Super 2000 World Rally Championship and covers a number
of vehicle classes (N, R4, R5 and S2000). Titles for teams, drivers and
co-drivers will be awarded to those who have scored the most points in six
of the seven events in which they have taken part.
The WRC-3 Championship replaces the P-WRC Championship. This is for Group R
cars with two-wheel drive (R3, R2 and R1). Titles for teams, drivers and
co-drivers will be awarded to those who have scored the most points in five
of the six events in which they have taken part.
The Junior World Rally Championship is the place to find the stars of the
future battling it out in two-wheel drive non-turbocharged hatchbacks. In 2013, these will be
Ford Fiesta R2 cars - all competitors drive the same vehicles, so their
driving abilities are shown more clearly.
The WRC is regulated and controlled by the Federation Internationale de
l'Automobile (FIA), the governing body for worldwide motorsport. Most WRC
rallies follow the same basic itinerary: two days of reconnaissance on
Tuesday and Wednesday, to enable the driver and co-driver to check the
route, and 'shakedown' - in effect practice - on Thursday, followed by the
competition itself on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Some events also include
'Super Special' stages - short and compact sprint tests which often feature
two cars racing head-to-head.
Because rallies go on for several days, cars and drivers need to take a
break. For this reason they visit the 'Service Park' at pre-determined
times during each event.1 2

WRC Rally Monte Carlo 1986 Group B (deel 1)
The 1980s saw the rear-wheel-drive Group 2 and the more popular Group 4
cars be replaced by more powerful four-wheel-drive Group B cars. FISA
legalized all-wheel-drive in 1979, but most manufacturers believed it was
too complex to be successful. However, after Audi started entering Mikkola
and the new four-wheel-drive Quattro in rallies for testing purposes with
immediate success, other manufacturers started their all-wheel-drive
projects. Group B regulations were introduced in the 1982 season, and with
only a few restrictions allowed almost unlimited power. Audi took the
constructors' title in 1982 and 1984 and drivers' title in 1983 (Mikkola)
and 1984 (Stig Blomqvist). Audi's French female driver Michèle Mouton came
close to winning the title in 1982, but had to settle for second place
after Opel rival Röhrl. 1985 title seemed set to go to Vatanen and his
Peugeot 205 T16 but a bad accident at the Rally Argentina left him to watch
compatriot and team-mate Timo Salonen take the title instead. Italian
Attilio Bettega had even a more severe crash with his Lancia 037 at the
Tour de Corse and died instantly.
