Four-wheel drive returning in 2012
From 2009, there will be 12 events in the FIA World Rally Championship.
A detailed regulation around this decision will be examined by the FIA World Rally Championship Commission and presented to the WMSC in October.
2012, it was agreed in principle that world rally cars will be four-wheel drive and turbo-charged, based on mass-produced Group N and S2000 specification cars.
Cost reducing measures will also be introduced.
For the rest of the 2007 season, it is reiterated that World Rally events cannot be run without an efficient safety tracking system in place, as deemed by the FIA.
