The twentieth edition of the Junior World Championship will consist of a total of five European events. Sébastien Loeb, back in 2001, was the first winner aboard the Citroën Saxo S1600. Dani Solà, Dani Sordo or the Solans brothers, among others, have managed to triumph in the JWRC until 2020, the year of the consecration of Swede Tom Kristensson.
The matter has changed a lot since the first editions. Today, the cars used are the Ford Fiesta Rally4 provided by M-Sport. We already have the official calendar, which includes rallies on asphalt and gravel, starting in April.
The contest will begin with the Rally Croatia on the asphalt surface. A month later, in May, the teams will visit one of the most beautiful rallies of the season, Portugal. Estonia, with very different conditions and in July, appears heated as the third rally.
The participants will end the year with two tests on asphalt. The penultimate scheduled is the Ypres Rally in Belgium. The Rally is scheduled for the second weekend of August.
Four years after its last punctuation in 2017 (the year of the triumph of Nil Solans), Rallye RACC de Catalunya returns within the JWRC. As usual, as the last scoring appointment, scheduled between October 14 and 17, 2021.
