WRC launches 2018 campaign in Birmingham

The 2018 FIA World Rally Championship was given an official send-off today at Autosport International which is taking place this weekend at Birmingham’s NEC in England. The presentation was attended by all the factory crews and their Michelin-equipped cars.

Autosport International, the annual motorsport exhibition held in Birmingham, England, was chosen as the venue to launch this year’s FIA WRC on Thursday, January 11, two weeks before competitive action is due to kick off at the upcoming Rallye Monte-Carlo.

The WRC teams all brought along their latest challengers and their respective crews unveiled the 2018-spec Hyundai i20 Coupé WRC, Toyota Yaris WRC, Citroën C3 WRC and Ford Fiesta RS WRC which will all compete on Michelin rubber this season.

“Michelin is involved in a number of world class motorsport programmes,” said Michelin Motorsport Director Pascal Couasnon, “but only the WRC allows us to work on the performance, durability and versatility of our tyres simultaneously due to the huge variety of conditions it throws at competitors and the restrictions in place regarding the number of tyres that may be used on each event. The technologies we develop for the WRC feed directly into our road tyres because our customers are looking for the very same strengths.”

The championship’s promoter Oliver Ciesla recalled Michelin’s position as the WRC’s number one tyre manufacturer: “Michelin isn’t just a technical partner to the WRC, it is also a commercial partner which invests significantly in the sport.” The German also used the show to announce that all stages will be broadcast live on WRC+ from this season.

The 2018 FIA World Rally Championship is scheduled to start in Monaco’s glamorous Place du Casino on Thursday, January 25, and will finish in Coffs Harbour, on Australia’s east coast, on Sunday, December 18.
