FIA World Rally Championship / 2017-2019 WRC car

July 10, 2015

The principles of the technical and homologation regulations for the 2017-2019 WRC car were approved by the World Motor Sport Council. The intention behind the new regulations is to produce a car with a far more dynamic and distinct appearance that exhibits character and diversity. The highlights are:

Engine

– Powered increased to 380hp
– 36mm maximum diameter for the turbo restrictor
– Maximum 2.5b absolute turbo pressure

Body

– Free zone defined around the body shell of the production car to create a maximum WRC car width of 1875mm and greater overhang front and rear
– Geater freedom on the lateral parts of the front bumper, with potential for additional aero devices ahead of the front wheels. Openings may also be cut-out on the fender surface
– Bigger and more visible fixed rear wing

The overall weight of the car will be reduced by 25kg, there will be a return to an electronically-controlled centre differential and the overall homologated length of the car must be greater than or equal to 3.9 metres.
