The World Rally Championship's return will see a high-class field tackle the fast roads of Estonia next month. Within the field is 13 Rally1 cars (WRC) and 28 Rally2 cars (R5). It will also be a round of the Junior WRC. WRC leader, Sebastien Ogier will sweep the dusty roads at the start of the event ahead of Elfyn Evans and Thierry Neuville. The Hyundai and Toyota teams will run four cars, with the former entering Pierre Louis Loubet for manufacturer points. In a similar situation than in 2016, Hyundai will enter the second manufacturer team. This team will be able to score and take points away from their main rivals. In the WRC2 category, Mads Ostberg will lead the field in his factory Citroen C3 R5. Within the former 'pro' category, Hyundai and M-Sport will both run cars. Some Rally2 runners include the likes of Ostberg, Veiby, Gryazin, Solberg and Huttunen.
