The RACC-Catalunya Rally, also in 2022 and in principle all on asphalt

The RACC-Catalunya will be part of the calendar of the 2022 World Rally Championship, which has been discussed this week, although it will not be made public until approved by the FIA World Council, publishes this Monday the specialized portal soymotor.com.

The Spanish test of the World Cup would be played entirely on asphalt. And it is that the 2021 edition, which will be presented next day 8, will leave its particular mixed character as it is the only one on dirt and asphalt. It is the teams that would have asked that it be only on asphalt to lower costs.

The World Cup would include Monte Carlo, Sweden, Estonia, Greece, Italy, Japan, Kenya and Catalonia. Northern Ireland, Finland, Croatia, and Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and Argentina are the applicants for the four remaining places. The final calendar will not be confirmed until later: only a few key dates will be offered and the rest would be at the expense of the evolution of the covid-19 pandemic.

It is surprising the absence of Germany, where Toyota and Hyundai are based, of Great Britain in the hard core – they want to move the test to Northern Ireland – and of Finland between the fixed tests.
