Following a vote by the members of the World Motor Sport Council, the FIA can confirm the start order and format of rallies from 2015.
The running order for FIA World Rally Championship events will be in Championship order for Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, P1 and P2 crews will run in reverse classification order. P1 and P2 drivers who have retired will restart the subsequent day/s at the front of this group.
From next season, rallies will continue to be organised over two and half days, from Friday to Sunday, with a minimum of 300 kilometres of special stages. A ceremonial start or super special stage can be organised on Thursday. Organisers will also be encouraged to ensure their event has unique qualities, new and longer stages to help create closer competition and fresh opportunities for the media.
