W2RC: FIVE ROUNDS ON FOUR CONTINENTS

The series has gained a cult following. After two seasons of a revamped format that brings FIM riders and FIA drivers and crews together in the same races, the World Rally-Raid Championships continue to spice up the sport year-round with twists and turns, duels and vendettas. The series encourages competitors and constructors to perform at a high level and push the envelope at all times, while spectators and TV viewers get familiar with the various rounds that have carved out a niche on the calendar. On the road from AlUla to Yanbu, the Dakar will get the ball rolling for the third act of the W2RC, whose 2024 edition will also come to a close in the Rallye du Maroc and will feature a European round, the BP Ultimate Rally-Raid in Portugal.

FIA points scale

The standings will change according to the results of each stage and the overall outcome. The points awarded for stages will not be added to the tally unless the riders, drivers or crews remain in the race until the finish. However, competitors will be allowed to start a stage (and, therefore, to earn points) even if they have failed to complete the previous one, albeit with a heavy time penalty 

Marathon events

  • General standings, points awarded to the top 15 competitors: (50, 40, 30, 25, 20, 15, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3 and 2).
  • Stage classification, points awarded to the top 5 competitors: (5, 4, 3, 2 and 1).

Rally events

  • General standings, points awarded to the top 15 competitors: (30, 25, 20, 17, 15, 13, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3 and 2).
  • Stage classification, points awarded to the top 5 competitors: (5, 4, 3, 2 and 1).

Constructor classification

  • Each constructor can field a maximum of three riders, drivers or crews in each event. Only the top two from each team will score points, which will be awarded following the above scale.

FIM points scale   

Due to the particularities of the motorbike race, most notably the hazards faced by riders, the FIM strongly emphasises consistency over raw speed. Therefore, points towards the world championship standings will be based entirely on the final general standings of each event. A coefficient will be applied to the points at stake according to the event format.  

Scale of points

  • General standings, points awarded to the top 15 competitors: (25, 20, 16, 13, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1).

Coefficients

  • A coefficient of 1 will be applied to "FIM Rally" events.
  • A coefficient of 1.5 will be applied to "FIM Marathon Rally" events. The result will be rounded up to the nearest integer.  

Constructor classification

  • Each constructor can field a maximum of three riders or drivers in each event. Only the top two from each team will score points, which will be awarded following the above scale.
