ZAGREB, 16 October 2021 – The world rally elite will return to Croatia next year, it was confirmed on Friday when the 2022 World Rally Championship calendar was revealed.
Thanks to the successful organisation of the 2021 Croatia Rally, the International Automobile Federation (FIA) and WRC Promoter have included the Croatia Rally In the World Rally Championship calendar for 2022.
Croatia’s WRC debut this year drew praise and now Croatia will host again from 21-24 April 2022.
“This world event is a fantastic opportunity for us to extend the tourist season and promote Croatia across the world. I hope everyone will recognise it, including state institutions and the corporate sector, and help us to organise this race in the years ahead. We have been given a chance and it would be insane to miss it,” said the president of the organising committee of the Croatia Rally, Daniel Šaškin said after the debut rally.
The debut Croatia Rally was held back in April, when the best rally drivers demonstrated their skills in 20 speed tests on local roads in Karlovac, Krapina-Zagorje and Zagreb counties and the City of Zagreb.
The competition was broadcast in 150 countries and more than 200 foreign reporters arrived to cover the event, the largest number of foreign reporters ever to cover a sporting event in Croatia.
