Rally Mexico

Created in 1979, Rally Mexico was a collaborative effort between the two largest automobile associations in the country at the time: Club Automovilístico Francés de México (CAF) and Rally Automovil Club (RAC). With the aim of boosting rallying in the country, the event ran for six years in the State of Mexico. Later incarnations of the event saw El Paso de Cortés, Valle de Bravo and Baja California play host, before it moved to its current location in Léon in 1998. The rally officially became part of the WRC calendar in 2004.
