WRC 2013 - FIA Confirms and Announces 13 Events

WRC 2013 - FIA Confirms and Announces 13 Events

After the long dreaded week of the future of WRC after the WMSC meeting, it was a little relief that there will be 2013 and may be more... uh! It will be more!! :)

But this good news has a yellow flag, FIA is yet to announce the name of Promoter though! Until Finland, it is FIA's & event organiser's baby to change the nappies and whatever.. This means, the fans are not sure what will be the hit at their wallet management & what they would be getting in return!

The list of events for 2013 is as below, in alphabetical order,

  • Argentina
  • Australia
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Great Britain
  • Greece
  • Italy
  • Mexico
  • Monte Carlo
  • Portugal
  • Spain
  • Sweden

All the geo-locations remains same, but just a little bit of change of Australian round replacing the current New Zealand. Post the meeting, the 'million euro' question remains the same! What happened to the 100,000 fee thingy, that created all the pre-meet ruckus? Did that issue resolved, with any conclusion? And was this events confirmed after the acceptance of the local event organiser!?. Uh! Too many questions and little answers or info... hope these questions are answered positively in the upcoming days!

Also in terms of cost-cutting measures for the upcoming season, only number of tires made used per car is reduced. Q.Any other ways of cutting the costs involved?!.. maybe like Hybrid-WRC Cars in future to save on the fuel, although to develop it would be another huge expenditure!

Atleast there is a relief that we get to see this baby monster from VW Motorsports!
