The 2021 FIA World Rally Championship calendar was revealed on Friday (9 October), with Croatia announced as a first-time host.
The calendar was approved by the FIA, world motorsport’s governing body, and WRC Promoter managing director Jona Siebel said it would appeal to both competitors and WRC fans alike.
“The inclusion of Croatia to the WRC for the first time is an exciting new challenge to our fixture list and brings huge anticipation,” he added.
Last year, WRC rallies were followed by 836 million viewers, and four million spectators attended the 13 rallies.
“That is not only a sports competition, but an opportunity to present Croatia and its tourist offer,” said Daniel Saskin, head of Croatia Rally organisation committee.
