The new season calendar had been given green light by the International Federation of Automobile (FIA) during a meeting in Paris on Friday.

With its new stage in Chile, there will be 14 hosting countries in 2019 WRC season.

This year, Rally Turkey will be the 11th leg of the schedule, between Sept. 12-15.
