Existing engines to stay in WRC hybrid switch

31 March 2020

Following long discussions between WRC bosses and manufacturers in preparation for the series’ switch to new environmentally friendly cars, a set of key technical features relating to the engine and chassis has been approved to enable the teams to prepare for 2022.

Based on the same type of regulations and same base engine (GRE engine) as current cars, this series of measures aims at reducing the development, manufacturing and running costs of the new engine and will help performance convergence. This includes no fresh air valve for ALS, a simplified turbo, a reduction in the number of engines per year and many parts frozen in current specifications.

“Rally1 continues to gather momentum ahead of its 2022 launch,” said FIA Rally Director Yves Matton. “Following the approval of the Technical Regulations for this new class at the last World Motor Sport Council a few weeks ago, we are now very pleased to announce Compact Dynamics as our exclusive supplier of hybrid equipment from 2022, which is the result of a rigorous analysis and evaluation of the various proposals received by the FIA departments. I am convinced Compact Dynamics will bring a wealth of experience to the program. Additionally, the measures approved yesterday will enable us to achieve cost reduction in both development and annual maintenance costs, alongside a simplified process.”
