Have Your Say: FIA's Fan Survey on the Future of WRC


WRC Rally 1 Puma


Comment sections, social media, vlogs and podcasts have all been filled with fans expressing their opinion on the state of the WRC, with only ourselves as the audience. Until now that is. The FIA in conjunction with the recently formed working group has launched a new fan survey, aimed at capturing the fans perceptions and thoughts of the WRC and Rally 1 and is the latest action to help direct the eventual new direction of the sport. I've taken the survey and only takes around 5-10 mins to complete. If like myself, you are one of those people in the comments, now is the time to have your say heard at the top level.


It is understood that the working group wishes to understand WRC fans and manufacturers’ perceptions of the current state of the competition and what they expect in the future. Focus groups are also planned to gather qualitative information, with the recruitment process for these focus groups taking place online. It is also understood that in-depth interviews will be held with 10 manufacturers.


Robert Reid, who heads up the working group, alongside David Richards, has said,

Perhaps more than any other motorsport, rallying belongs to the fans, that’s been the case for more than 50 years and we want to see it continue far into the future.
Robert Reid
We want to hear from them. We want to hear the views of the people who are watching the sport, be it live, digitally or on television – everybody has an opinion and we want to hear them all.
From the outset, we didn’t just want to run a survey, we wanted to involve fans further and the focus groups will do that. Perhaps more than any other motorsport, rallying belongs to the fans, that’s been the case for more than 50 years and we want to see it continue far into the future.
