The inaugural World Rally-Raid Championship comes to a close 18–23 October with the (rescheduled) Andalucía Rally. While the Rally2 and T5 classes have wrapped up their title battles, championships remain up for grabs in the others.

Headlining the final points scramble is the T1 category’s duel between Nasser Al-Attiyah and Sébastien Loeb. Al-Attiyah leads with 144 points to Loeb’s 122 including a win at the Dakar Rally, but the two are split in stage wins (eight) and stage podiums (fifteen).

An even closer battle takes place in T4 as Rokas Baciuška‘s Rallye du Maroc win places him just one point behind Marek Goczał‘s 152. However, Austin Jones also has a shot as he trails Goczał by two.

Francisco López Contardo leads T3 with 182 points over the 154 of defending class champion Cristina Gutiérrez.

On two wheels, Sam Sunderland has twenty-two points on Pablo Quintanilla with 74 to 52 and has led the standings all season, but the latter withdrew due to a left shoulder injury sustained in Morocco. As the overall winner receives twenty-five points, Ricky Brabec still has an outside shot with 50 points.

Mason Klein clinched the Rally2 crown in Morocco with 88 points ahead of Roman Dumontier‘s 60. The Rallye du Maroc was the first round for Rally3, won by Amine Echiguer. Echiguer is the only rider in his category who declared for W2RC points and is entered for Andalucía.

With wins at Dakar and Morocco, Alexandre Giroud leads Juraj Varga 63 to 40 in Quad. Kamil Wiśniewski is the only other W2RC rider racing in Spain and sits fifth in points with his lone prior entry being a third in Dakar.

The T5 category is not taking part in Andalucía. Kees Koolen won that class title.

Among those not vying for a championship, Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge winner Stéphane Peterhansel trades in his Audi RS Q e-tron E2 for a Yamaha SSV to promote the manufacturer’s new T3 vehicle. Also showing up as an Open entry is Loeb’s Sébastien Loeb Racing team with an SSV for Tiphanie Isnard.
