Details of the WRC regulations for 2019 have now been released, confirming the originally provisional dates. In addition, linking of chassis and components used on certain events (Argentina/Chile, and Portugal/Sardinia) and the new WRC2 Pro series were also ratified. The most significant change will be the ban on all the old Super 2000, Group A and Group N cars, which are not homologated as Group R cars. Also, there will be no more WRC3, but Junior WRC continues, as does WRC2, but without the WRC2 team prize. Manufacturers in WRC2 Pro (now called “P2P”) must participate in at least seven events with a maximum two cars, and both results will be taken from all events into account for points. The WRC2 Pro championship is for Drivers, Co-drivers and Manufacturers, points for Drivers and Co-drivers come from their best eight results. World Rally Car drivers may request a personal competition number. 31-40 are reserved for WRC2 Pro drivers, 41-70 for other WRC2 drivers, 71-91 will be allocated by organisers. Certain limits on testing have also been announced.
