The calendars for the 2024 season of the “FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Bajas” and “FIA European Cup for Cross-Country Bajas” were published at the FIA World Motorsport Council. A few weeks earlier, the FIA World Rally Raid Championship had already announced its races for next year.

The 18 events in total will be held in 13 countries worldwide: in South America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and North Africa. There are a few changes to the 2023 season: The Italy Baja and the Baja Greece swap series: The Italy Baja will be part of the European Cup in 2024 and the Baja Greece of the World Cup. In the FIA World Rally Raid Championship, the BP Ultimate Rally Raid event in Portugal is part of the calendar for the first time.

This season, Krzysztof Holowczyc and Lukasz Kurzeja won the FIA European Cup for Cross-Country Bajas. This weekend, Joao Ferreira and Filipe Palmeiro in the MINI JCW Rally Plus will be fighting for a top position in the FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Bajas at the Baja Portalegre. The final event is the Dubai International Baja. In the FIA World Rally-Raid Championship, X-raid secured second place in the manufacturers’ standings.
