With 34 cars (15 of which are accepted under the ASN category rule), Rally Australia is the most popular of the three WRC “long-haul” events this year. There were 24 starters in Mexico and 19 in Argentina. As already announced, Toyota are only sending two cars (no Hanninen), while regular Hyundai driver Dani Sordo has been dropped in favour of Andreas Mikkelsen. This will be the second WRC event for 17 year old Kalle Rovanpera, who is the only entry registered in the WRC2. There are 12 World Rally Cars (including the only WRC Trophy entry for the DS3 WRC for Jourdain Serderidis, but no Mads Ostberg) and there are no WRC3 entries.
There is interest regarding the four cars entered under special AP4 rules (a Mazda 2, a Mini Cooper, a Toyota Yaris and a Peugeot 208) and the relative performance of these 1.6 litre turbo cars which are allowed to run with 34mm turbo restrictors (R5 cars must use 32mm restrictors).
The specification of the 10 traditional “Group N” cars is also of interest, all of which have been entered under ASN rules rather than as NR4 cars. Entries for the concurrent National championship event have not yet been released. View the 2017 Rally Australia entry list HERE.
