2002 FIA WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP

An unprecedented seven offical manufacturers have entered the 2002 FIA World Rally Championship. Each will run a two-car team for the entire Championship plus a third car at most events.

The number of competitors for the newly launched FIA Production Car World Rally Championship and FIA Junior World Rally Championship exceeded all expectations with respectively 26 and 28 drivers entered. The competition numbers for these two new Championships are the same because they will never run together at the same event.
