The organizers of the Rallye World Championship (WRC) want the WRC calendar for a rally Complement in the Middle East-if possible, in the 2023 season. A desert rally describes WRC event director Simon Larkin compared to the English-language edition of 'Motorsport.com' as a missing piece of the puzzle. The WRC continues to work at an event in the USA.

"When we look at the calendar, we have a good snow event [Sweden], we have Africa [Safari rally in Kenya], we have the Acropolis rally in Greece and these are the events we wanted to bring back" , says Larkin.

  The evolution of Sandra Bullock, in pictures Sandra Bullock has been a longtime staple in Hollywood and has delivered some of cinema’s most iconic performances of all time. More than just an actress, she’s lived a life as full as anyone who has ever existed. Let’s step away from the characters she portrays and take a look at the life of Sandra Bullock.

"I think an event in the Middle East and especially a desert rally is what is still missing in this puzzle," continued Larkin. "It is our ambition to bring such an event to the Rally World Championship, and even next year. We are working towards this goal."

desert rally probably in Saudi Arabia

The last appearance of the WRC in the Middle East was eleven years ago. In 2008, 2010 and 2011, the Rally Jordan was part of the WRC calendar. It seems questionable whether Jordan is again considered as a venue. A desert rally in Saudi Arabia is more likely, where the Dakar rally has been held since 2020.

This is intended to continue the WRC's global expansion course after the championship has been majority in Europe in the past two years due to the consequences of the Covid 19 pandemic.

"We would like to realize a calendar in which we compete on every continent except for Antarctic," says Larkin. "This is what the World Cup needs, and that was what we had planned for 2020, and we want to return to absolute normality next year."

USA and the search for the right place

Another goal, albeit more in the medium term, remain one of the most important car markets in the world for the WRC. "The United States is attractive for every single player of the championship," emphasizes Larkin. "We know that there is a big fan base there, because we see this from the number of spectators on all of our platforms."

There are already suitable figureheads for rallying. "There are not many other countries that we go to in which we already have ambassadors such as Travis Pastrana and Ken Block who are already doing sport," said Larkin.

"We see that it is a great starting point for the WRC to have an event there. We just have to find the right city for it." The last time the WRC drove in 1988 with the Olympus rally in the state of Washington in the United States.
