AM I FREE TO USE ANY SETUP IN WRC 9?
#RallyAtHome: Candidates are free to use any hardware (platform, controller, rig), with any in-game setup and all assists allowed.
Digital Challenge: Besides the seating position, Candidates are not allowed to make any changes to their assigned setup. All drivers must follow the given in-game settings of WRC 9. Different agreements are not allowed.
WHEN AND WHERE WILL THE CONTINENTAL FINALS TAKE PLACE?
IF MY CONTINENTAL FINAL HAS PASSED, CAN I STILL ENTER THE COMPETITION?
Unfortunately, candidates must have entered and won a Challenge 10 days prior to their respective Continental Final. If a #RallyAtHome Challenge ends less than 10 days before a Continental Final or after, Candidates from the countries concerned cannot become eligible for that Continental Final. Naturally, the next eligible Candidate will qualify for their respective Continental Final.
CAN I STILL PARTICIPATE IF I LIVE IN A COUNTRY THAT DOES NOT HAVE AN ASN?
Participation in the program is only available to nationals of countries represented in the FIA through an ASN.
WHAT IS #RallyAtHome?
#RallyAtHome are our online qualifiers organized every two weeks directly on WRC 9’s FIA Rally Star DLC on Playstation, Xbox and PC. The #RallyAtHome Challenges will take place from 213.02.2021. The Candidate at the top of the combined classification will qualify for his Continental Final.

WHAT IS SLALOM?
A motorsport discipline recognized by the FIA, resembling a road-handling course consisting of natural or artificial obstacles. Like rallying, this grassroot motorsport is also a timed competition, ideal to detect raw driving talent in a globally accessible approach.
HOW WILL I BECOME A FIA RALLY STAR?
If you have the talent, you will have to win one of the FIA Rally Star Challenges, whether offline, organized by your ASN via Slalom or Digital Challenge, or online through the #RallyAtHome Challenges of the FIA Rally Star DLC hosted on WRC 9.
This will qualify you for your nation’s Continental Final, giving you the chance to prove that you are the biggest talent of your continent. A Jury will determine the winner receiving one out of 7 places in the Training Season. Additionally, the best female driver will qualify for the Women’s Final after the last Continental Final.
The 7 winners of the Continental Finals and Women's Final are given the opportunity to take part in a comprehensive programme organized by the FIA, consisting coaching and training for all crews participating in a minimum of six rallies. Drivers will be evaluated on their progress and individual performances to select the most promising 4 Candidates including at least one female driver who will participate in the FIA Junior WRC programme the following season.
Winning the FIA Junior WRC within the first two seasons will give the Candidate the ultimate reward of a full WRC2 season on the next year.
