One of the biggest criticisms levied at the Rally1 formula is the lack of drivers competing in them.
Introduced in 2022 and bringing hybrid technology to the World Rally Championship for the very first time, the ruleset has failed to entice any new manufacturers beyond the existing trio of Toyota, Hyundai and Ford via M-Sport.
But what if we told you that the news Alberto Heller will drive a Ford Puma Rally1 on his home event, next month’s Rally Chile, means he’ll become the 20th ever driver to compete in one of these cars in the WRC?
Considering entry numbers in the top class have been as low as eight on several events in 2o23, that’s perhaps surprising. But can you correctly identify all 19 drivers to have so far driven a Rally1 on a round of the WRC?
