LONDON, England - The French round of the World Rally championship will return to the island of Corsica in October 2015 from the mainland’s Alsace region that hosted the event most recently.

The French motorsport federation said in a statement on February 6 that the Corsican authorities had agreed to provide financial backing for the October 1-4 event.

Alsace, the home region of nine-times World Rally champion Sebastien Loeb who retired from the championship at the end of 2012, had said it could no longer provide the required funding.


A French driver has won the WRC for the past 11 years, with Loeb taking a record nine in a row and Sebastien Ogier the other two.

The Rally of France has been part of the championship since 1973 and was held in Corsica from then until 2008.
