W2RC – New names for vehicle categories

Sébastien Loeb and Nasser Al-Attiyah will compete in the Ultimate category in 2024! This is not a UFC type fight, but rather a rally-raid. Indeed, new terminology has been validated by ASO, the promoter of the World Rally Raid Championship (W2RC), as well as the FIA ​​for next season.

Until now, categories other than Motorcycles were divided as follows: T1 for reference cars (with T1U for Audi, T1+ for Toyota, Prodrive, Ford), T2 for near-series 4×4s, T3 for light prototypes (modified SSVs), T4 for near-series SSVs and T5 for trucks.

From the 2024 Dakar, the T1 will be renamed Ultimate, the T2 will become the Stock, the T3 will be the Challenger, the T4 will be renamed SSV and the T5, the Truck.

The new terminology will then be used to describe the different sub-championships. As an example, the FIA ​​World Rally Raid Championship for T3 drivers will be known as the FIA ​​World Rally Raid Championship for Challenger drivers, the Baja Regional Cup for Stock drivers will replace the Regional Cup for T2 drivers and the Bajas Cross Country World Cup for T4 drivers will become the Baja World Cup for SSV drivers.
