Rovanpera to contest only partial WRC season in unchanged 2024 Toyota line-up
The reigning WRC constructors’ champions, Toyota, have announced new contracts with drivers Kalle Rovanpera, Elfyn Evans, Sebastien Ogier, and Takamoto Katsuta. Rovanpera, Evans, and Ogier each scored three wins this year, helping Toyota win their sixth world title. Evans, the runner-up in this year’s championship, will compete in a full season alongside Katsuta. Ogier, an eight-time world champion, will participate in his third partial campaign after retiring from full-time competition. Rovanpera, the newly crowned two-time world champion, has signed a new multi-year deal but will only participate in a part-time program in 2024. He plans to “recharge his batteries” next year before returning for a full-time program in 2025.
