World Rally Championship 2019

The 2019 FIA World Rally Championship will involve fourteen racing events that will involve a variety of roads, i.e., from gravel and tarmac to snow and Mixed surface. The winners from the last six consecutive WRC events, Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia, will be setting off the event as the defending driver and the co-driver champions.
