How will Rovanpera become the 2023 WRC Champion at CER?

As the championship heads to the twelfth WRC round of the season, Kalle Rovanpera can put an end to his teammate’s hopes to clinch his maiden title in the series, but how the Finn driver can become a WRC Champion for a second consecutive time at Central European Rally?

The crews will face a new challenge in less than a week as they will compete in a brand-new event which will be held in three countries (Austria, Czech Republic and Germany). Kalle Rovanpera is heading to CER with a 31-point advantage over his title rival Elfyn Evans who outscored the WRC Champion by two points in Chile earlier this month. The 23-year old Toyota driver has to score 29 points more than Evans at Central European Rally with the intention of becoming a WRC Champion again in his career, but his task is very difficult as both of them have a good road position. Below we examine how Rovanpera’s and Evans’s results at CER will define if the first one will be crowned the WRC Champion of 2023.
