Nine confirmed rounds on 2021 WRC calendar
But no dates yet
Prioritising cost-saving measures, a number of changes to the Sporting Regulations have been ratified to facilitate the restart of the 2020 season. This includes a reduction in the number of engines used by WRC teams from three to two if there are eight or fewer rounds in 2020, and the limitation of pre-event testing to one day for every Manufacturer driver entered in a European WRC round, the test to be used before the corresponding event.
