WMSC expresses concern over costs.

The FIA has announced that the WRC Commission is to review the direction of the proposed new technical regulations due to be brought into play for 2010 World Rally Championship season.

The decision was announced following the latest meeting of the FIA World Motor Sport Council in Paris, where concerns were raised about the potential increase in costs for a WRC car.

The decision to review the proposed regulations has therefore been taken to ensure that the original proposals for 2010 remain in place.

"The WMSC expressed its concern at the apparent potential increase in the cost of a World Rally car," a statement from the governing body read. "The WRC Commission will therefore review the current direction of the proposed 2010 technical regulations, in order to ensure that the original decision to use no more than a removable, bolt-on kit to change a Super 2000 or Group N car into a World Rally car is maintained."

Also in the WMSC meeting, the decision was taken that the amount of mandatory events for a manufacturer team in the WRC will be reduced to eight for 2009.

This decision has been taken due to the smaller calendar in place for next season, which features twelve events compared to the 15 in place this year.
