Rally New Zealand organisers are pushing hard for a return to the World Rally Championship in 2022, and believe a Down Under double-header is a realistic option.
“We are very confident that we can get the WRC back in 2022. Nothing is signed yet, but our sponsors have stuck with us, and together we are all going for the year.“We see only about three offshore [outside Europe] events happening again in 2022 so there is no reason why we and Australia can’t be on that calendar together.” There has been no announcement about where the next edition of Rally Australia will be held, although it is widely believed that Bathurst will host the rally. Coffs Harbour hosted Rally Australia in 2011, and then from 2013 until 2019.
