The FIA have further reduced the number of engines that World Rally Car teams can use in the remaining rounds of the 2020 WRC. In a bid to prioritise cost-saving measures, a number of changes to the Sporting Regulations were ratified at their first eConference. The new regulations deem that "a reduction in the number of engines used by WRC teams from three to two if there are eight or fewer rounds in 2020, and the limitation of pre-event testing to one day for every Manufacturer driver entered in a European WRC round, the test to be used before the corresponding event". Both proposals have already been approved by competitors registered in the 2020 WRC, in accordance with article 18.2.4 of the International Sporting Code. The calendar of events for the remainder of 2020 is being revised as a result of COVID-19, with several new, and one-off, events expected to be added. As reported earlier, a proposal for the 2021 calendar has been approved, with the first nine events ready for inclusion, six of which were ratified by the Council in 2019. Dates and the remaining events are to be confirmed. The World Motor Sport Council meeting was chaired by FIA President Jean Todt and FIA Deputy President for Sport Graham Stoker.
