    The 2018 World Rally Championship will be run over 13 rounds again in 2018. The Rally of Poland has been removed from the line up, due to spectator safety concerns raised by the governing body, it has been replaced by the Rally of Turkey, which will be based in the coastal resort town of Marmaris, with the proposed route running along the Mediterranean coastline.

    Additionally, Rally GB and Catalunya have swapped places on the schedule.

    Sebastien Loeb will return to the WRC in 2018

    He will drive for Citroen on three rounds of the championship - Mexico, Corsica and Spain.

    The question is, will he still be competitive? As Marcus Grönholm recently commented, Sebastien likes to win, but it may not be so easy now,

    Loeb will be 44 when he takes the start ramp in Mexico.





    The 9 times WRC Champion, will face the current (and 5 times) WRC Champion, Sebastien Ogier.

    17-year-old Kalle Rovanperä has signed to drive for Skoda in the WRC2 class for 2018. He won the category on the recent Rally Australia, not bad, considering he only passed his driving test a few weeks ago!

    The kid on the right looks like he stabbed a rally driver, stole his outfit and is shortly about to nick a few million quid's worth of motors

    Neuville was out for a pre Monte test with Hyundai last week, is 2018 going to be his year?




    Not a good start...

    .... in his frustration, Neuville has switched cars and will use a Corsa!!



    OK, maybe not strictly true, but he will participate in the Legend Boucles ā Bastogne (Boucles de Spa) the first week of February with this Opel Corsa A

    Throwback Thursday. 15 years ago, Citroen signed the super team of McRae & Sainz, with a young upstart called Loeb thrown in to support and learn. However, the Frenchman led a 1-2-3 finish in Monaco, the rest is history.
