FIA announces World Rally Changes
A number of regulation changes will be incorporated into the 2008 and 2009 World Rally Championships.

From 1 January 2008:

- To provide for more equal competition, the running order for each Day will be based on the event classification.
- To aid public understanding, the term “Leg” will be replaced by “Day”.
- The regulations will provide for a 10 minute final service prior to the finish podium. It is intended to create the opportunity for the Service Park to be an attraction until the finish of the event.

From 1 January 2009:

- To increase the challenge of the events and to increase media opportunities, events will be allowed to run mixed surfaces, on the condition that a surface will be used on two consecutive days.
- To create more flexibility, the total length of the special stages will be increased from 360km to 400km.
