Motorsport South Africa along with FIA Rally Star offers you the chance to turn your online skills into a career as a professional rally driver by inviting you to take part in a series of 12 unique #RallyAtHome challenges using your own rig with WRC 9.

The global winner of every one of the #RallyAtHome challenges will win an automatic entry into the applicable continental final, and the chance to win one of the biggest prizes ever offered in motorsport. The winners of the continental finals will move on to a real-life training season in 2022 which will include participation in six European rallies and could extend to participation in the Junior World Rally Championship in 2023 and 2024, and ultimately for the winner of the 2024 Junior WRC – a fully funded WRC2 drive in the 2025 FIA World Rally Championship. How cool is that?
