Rule changes for 2022
Calendar returns to normalityAfter tumults of COVID, 2022 calendar saw some stability and normality return. It included 13 events where only new planned event was New Zealand while Ypres came in as a replacement for proposed event in Great Britain or Ireland. Chile was dropped as it hadn't been run in 2021 either as well as temporary events Arctic and Monza.
FIA Delegates
FIA Electrical Safety DelegateDue to dangers of high-voltage elements present in hybrid competition vehicles, FIA appoints a new delegate, Electrical Safety Delegate. Duties include to oversee electrical safety, deliver pre-event safety briefings, to act in the field with a dedicated HV-rescue car to respond on incidents and accidents involving hybrids.
Entrant named as driver must be the driverRules now clarify that entrant named as the driver of the crew must drive the car on special stages. In the past, it happened that a competitor who already had entered a maximum number of nominated events entered additional events under the name of the co-driver but still drove the car in order to deprive championship points from their rivals.
Engine limitNumber of engines per manufacturer nominated competitor is reduced from three to two per season.
High Voltage GlovesEach competing Rally1 car must carry two pairs of Class 0 (1000 V -proof) High Voltage Gloves.
Minimum weightThe minimum weight of the Rall1 car is set to to 1260 kg (was 1175 kg for 2017-spec RC1 cars).
