Hailed by the media and gaming community as the most realistic rally simulation, WRC 9 has been winning over new players around the world since its release on PlayStation and Xbox consoles and on PC. This unique DLC brings the video game closer to reality by becoming the first step in the FIA Rally Star selection program, which has been set up to find future talent.
 
FIA Rally Star: the green flag in February!
 
From February to August 2021, 12 online trials will be held to select the most promising drivers in WRC 9. This first phase of the competition will be open to drivers from 17 to 26 years of age, and will be played exclusively with the new M-Sport Ford Fiesta Rally3. The winners of each of the 12 trials will qualify for one of the six continental finals.
 
At the end of the finals, the 7 best drivers, including at least one woman, will be enrolled in an exclusive FIA training and practice program. For the best of them, the adventure will continue with 2 seasons in the FIA Junior WRC!
 
"The new level of realism in WRC 9 gives us the opportunity to propose this challenge to all of the sport's fans around the world" said Jérôme Roussel, FIA programme manager. "The next Sébastien Loeb, Ott Tänak or Sébastien Ogier may well already be practicing on their console or PC! We just need to find them!”
