Team Championship

The following are the rules which all teams have to follow:

Article 1.7.1 – Minimum number of members of the team is 1 driver. Maximum number of 3 drivers within each division.

Article 1.7.2 – All drivers of the same team must choose the same car within the same division. Drivers cannot transfer between new or affiliated teams during the championship.

Article 1.6.3Only the first 2 drivers of a team in each rally will get points for the WERC Rally Team Championship.

Annex 1: Shortcuts and cutting corners

Drivers have to send us their videos of 2 stages after every rally, one per leg. These stages are secret for WERC 1 and WERC 2 drivers until the end of the rally when a post on WERC Discord will reveal them. Drivers in WERC Junior will send us the videos of the last stage of each leg always. The videos should be sent by a link to any platform (for example, Youtube, Twitch, etc) in the specific channel of our WERC Discord.

Video is mandatory if you finish in Top 5 of your division and in addition, 1-5 drivers might be chosen randomly after every rally. Organisers will post a message in Discord tagging all drivers involved and they will have 48h to submit their videos. If the video has not been sent the driver will have a penalty.

2 wheels must be inside track limits all the time, unless the default co-driver says “cut”, then you can cut 1 car width. If a driver makes a mistake and cut unwittingly, he/she must slow down and brake to compensate the time he/she has gained illegally. So that stewards will take that into account.

It’s prohibited to quit the game between stages with no service areas and in all service areas during an event, with the following exceptions.



WERC 1 – Drivers of the first division can’t quit the game in service unless they give us an important reason.

WERC 2 – Drivers of the second division can quit the game only in 1 service per event and continue other day.

WERC 3 – Drivers of the third division can quit the game only in 1 service per event and continue other day.

WERC Junior – Drivers of the junior division can quit the game in all services and continue other day. The abuse of this rule might imply a penalty.
