The WRC is one of the world’s most-watched motorsports events, charging through off-road locations around the globe. Taking place between January and November, it’s the perfect way to get your monthly dose of high-octane, turbocharged time trial racing. Find out how to watch every round live in Australia here.
WRC 2021 TV Preview
Frenchman Sebastian Ogier is out for a seventh world title in 2021, which is great news for a sport he was rumoured to be walking away from. Winning world titles for three different manufacturers meant there was little left for him to achieve in the sport, but the promise of racing on home turf again in Monte Carlo proved too much to resist.
But there are a couple of early contenders that plan to scupper Ogier’s winning streak. Estonia’s Ott Tänak has been banging on the door for a few years now, and at 33 years of age is in his driving prime. His Hyundai i20 team have put a strong package together that should see him pushing for top place on the podium across the season.
Ogier’s teammate at Toyota, Welshman Elfyn Evans, is also one of the early favourites. He won’t be racing on home soil this year as the Rally GB has been cancelled, but that won’t stop his chances of going one better than last year’s second-place championship finish.
