HOW TO BECOME THE NEXT ONE

LOOKING FOR TOMORROW'S CHAMPIONS

If you are between 17 and 26 years old and dream of following in the footsteps of the greatest WRC Champions, then you've come to the right place! Organised by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile and its Club members around the world, FIA Rally Star is a unique opportunity to see your talent detected and developed. It's up to you to be the next one...
Follow the footsteps of your heroes

BECOMING A DRIVER: DREAM OR REALITY?

If you are impressed by Sebastien Loeb's record of achievements, if you are passionate about the fights between Ott Tänak, Sebastien Ogier and Thierry Neuville, if your timeline is full of WRC videos, then rally certainly has no more secrets for you. Wherever you are, whoever you are, FIA Rally Star gives you the opportunity to prove your talent and your will to join your idols. 

How to participate?

Across the world, FIA Member Clubs can organise selections to detect the most promising talents. Depending on the country, these events can be organised on driving simulators with the WRC 9 game and/or at the wheel of a production car for a slalom (manoeuvring test).

To truly bring the programme to your room, FIA Rally Star and WRC 9 organise the #RallyAtHome Challenges. These online qualifications are organised every two weeks directly on WRC 9's FIA Rally Star DLC on all platforms. Join thousands of candidates around the world and see if you can #BeTheNextOne

WHAT'S NEXT?

If you get qualified through the selections, you will be qualified for one of the six Continental Finals. And then it's time to move up a gear, as you will be competing against the best candidates from other countries at the wheel of an LifeLive TN5 Cross Car. One driver per continent will be selected to join the FIA Rally Star team.

SOUNDS GOOD, BUT HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

FIA Rally Star is a programme designed to showcase the talent and determination of the Candidates, and nothing else. Registration fees vary from country to country and are in the order of a meal in a restaurant. Participation in the Continental Finals (excluding travel expenses) and the rest of the programme will be fully covered by the FIA and its partners.

AND FOR LADIES?

FIA Rally Star is of course open to ALL young people between 17 and 26 years old, but we have a special scheme to encourage female participation. The six best drivers (one per continent) will compete in a Women's Final and the best will win her place in the FIA Rally Star team.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO BECOME A PRO DRIVER

In 2023, the seven drivers selected for the Continental Finals will benefit from a full season of training: driving coaching, physical and mental training, testing sessions and participation in six rallies at the wheel of a M-Sport Fiesta Rally3. A unique opportunity to acquire all the qualities of a future great driver!

A READY-MADE FUTURE

At the end of the 2023 season, you may be one of the four drivers selected to compete in the FIA Junior World Rally Championship. A season to learn, but also to convince, as three drivers will be selected for a second season in JWRC. This time, you will have to aim for the title to win the ultimate prize: a season in WRC2, with a car from the Rally2 category. What if it were you?
