Best of Crash Rallye HD - Compilation 2013
Rally Crashes happened in 2012 and 2013 . Car accidents because of drifts .
The production-based cars with 1.6 L direct injection turbo engine and four-wheel drive are built to
World Rally Car regulations for racing across tarmac, gravel and snow. The
power output is limited to around 300 bhp (225 kW). Current cars in the
championship include the Citroën DS3 WRC, Ford Fiesta RS WRC and Mini WRC.
The WRC was formerly held for Group A and Group B rallycars. However, due
to the increasing power, lack of reliability and a series of fatal
accidents on the 1986 season, Group B was permanently banned. Later, in
1997, the Group A cars evolved into the WRC car spec, to ease the
development of new cars and bring new makes to the competition. In 2011,
new rules were introduced to encourage more manufacturers (and privateers)
to take part, because the recent economic downturn had prompted several
manufacturers to leave the championship.
Cars in the Production Car World Rally Championship are limited to
production-based cars homologated under Group N rules. Cars in the Super
2000 World Rally Championship are homologated under Super 2000 rules. Most
cars in the Junior World Rally Championship are homologated under Super
1600 rules, but Group N and selected Group A cars can also contest the
Starting in 2013,a new category of rally cars known as Group R were
introdued as a replacement to the Group A and Group N rally categories,
with cars classified under one of six categories based on their engine
capacity and type, wheelbase, and drivetrain. As a result no cars will be
homologated under Group A and Group N regulations and instead will be
reclassified under Group R. Parallel to this, the Super 2000 and Production
Car World Championships were restructured; Super 2000 and Group N cars were
merged into a single championship known as World Rally Championship-2
alongside R4 and R5 cars, whilst the Production Car World Championship was
completely reimagined as the World Rally Championship-3 for two-wheel drive
cars complying with R1, R2 and R3 regulations.
WRC Teams and Drivers
20 different manufacturers have won a World Rally Championship event,
and a further ten have finished on the podium.
Suzuki and Subaru pulled out of the WRC at the end of the 2008
championship, both citing the economic downturn then affecting the
automotive industry for their withdrawal. Mini and Ford both pulled out of
the WRC at the end of the 2012 championship, due to a similar economic
downturn affecting the European market.
A typical WRC team will consist of about 40 people on the events, with a
further 60--100 at the team base.
Manufacturers and manufacturer-backed teams usually have two or three
drivers participating in each rally who are eligible to score points. The
total number of crews (driver and his co-driver) in the rallies varied from
47 (Monte Carlo and Mexico) to 108 (Great Britain) during the 2007
In 2012, The Ford World Rally Team and The Mini WRC Team both announced
their departure from the World Rally Championships for the 2013 season.
Volkswagen and Hyundai will make their return to the championship in 2013
and 2014, respectively.Best of Crash Rallye HD Best of Crash Rallye HD Best
