Phase one of the entry process for WRC 2016 will commence on Friday 23 October. This is the opportunity when teams that have attained pre-qualified Entrant (PQE) status can use this to obtain preferential entry. Any team (with or without pre-qualification) wishing to participate in WRC 2016 Alice Springs is able to enter from 23 October 2015. Since the entry limit of 800 is likely to fill, it is to the competitor's advantage to enter as soon as possible.
