The World Rally Championship has set up a taskforce to make the series more environmentally sustainable within five years. Yves Matton, FIA Rally Director, announced that the group is developing a road map containing medium-term goals and longer-term objectives. "A number of areas are being assessed from the introduction of hybrid technology, the use of alternative fuels, efficiencies in tyre design and how they can be transferred for everyday use on the road, the environmental impact of travelling to rallies, the running of events and even limiting the number of printed documents issued by rally organisers in an effort to use fewer resources," he said. "Several focused working groups will be created with initial findings and feedback due to be discussed at the forthcoming WRC Commission meetings in 2020." It is intended that all learnings in the WRC will be filtered down to regional championships for possible implementation in the future.
