The 2016 World Rally Championship is gearing up to be one of the most exciting seasons in its history, staged in some of the world’s most gruelling locations from the classic Monte Carlo Rally to a brand new event in China in September.
Tough conditions will push drivers, co-drivers and their cars to the limit and a recent surge in the sport’s popularity has seen lots of new manufacturers throw their hats into the ring – building super-powered versions of everyday family cars to surprise and delight millions of fans.
