The FIA Junior World Rally Championship (JWRC) was a complementary series to the World Rally Championship (WRC) as is the Production World Rally Championship (PWRC), and the Super 2000 World Rally Championship (SWRC). As JWRC was originally envisioned as a series for developing drivers, it is limited to drivers below the age of 28. The series' main car specification is Super 1600 (S1600). The cars have restricted power and front wheel drive only, and are more competitive on tarmac, rather than on mixed surface or gravel rallies.
Like in the PWRC and SWRC, the series' calendar includes about half of the WRC's events, and it is contested on the same stages. JWRC entrants race through the stages after the WRC competitors.
In 2011, the FIA replaced it with WRC Academy. In 2013, the WRC Academy was renamed as the Junior World Rally Championship.

“All the critics who could not make their reputations by discovering you are hoping to make them by predicting hopefully your approaching impotence, failure and general drying up of natural juices. Not a one will wish you luck or hope that you will keep on writing unless you have political affiliations in which case these will rally around and speak of you and Homer, Balzac, Zola and Link Steffens.”
—Ernest Hemingway (18991961)
“Never burn bridges. Todays junior prick, tomorrows senior partner.”

“In this world without quiet corners, there can be no easy escapes from history, from hullabaloo, from terrible, unquiet fuss.”
