The World Rally Championship (WRC) is an energizing arrangement sorted out by the FIA, coming full circle with a champion driver and maker.

World Rally Cars are based on creation 1.6-litre four-barrel cars, however with highlighted turbochargers, against slack frameworks, four-wheel-drive, consecutive gearboxes, streamlined parts and different upgrades bringing the cost of a WRC car to around US$1 million (€700,000/£500,000).

The WRC highlights three bolster titles, the Junior World Rally Championship (JWRC, in the past the WRC Academy), the World Rally Championship 2 (WRC-2, some time ago the Super 2000 World Rally Championship), and the World Rally Championship 3 (WRC-3, some time ago the Production World Rally Championship) which are challenged on the same occasions and stages as the WRC, yet with distinctive regulations. The junior contestants race through the stages after the WRC drivers.
