The 2018 World Rally Championship launched at Autosport International ahead of the season-opener in Monte Carlo. It was the first time a top-tier FIA World Championship has launched at the show in its 27-year history.
Lead drivers, co-drivers and team principals* were all in one place and on hand to talk about the 2017 championship and share their opinions on what the new season will bring across all four days of Europe’s biggest pre-season motorsport show.
Each manufacturer team contesting the 13 rounds of the 2018 season, Citroen, Hyundai, M-Sport and Toyota paraded their 2018 rally cars on the Autosport main stage across the Thursday of Autosport International in what was truly a WRC takeover day. All of the cars remained on display at the show throughout the weekend.
