In 2018 six events make-up the championship starting in New Zealand with the  fast and smooth roads of Rally of Whangarei, followed by Australia’s Canberra Rally, running through dusty forestry roads on the outskirts of the nation's capital city.

Japan is next and the fast forestry and public roads of Rally Hokkaido, followed by the China Rally and the bamboo covered mountains around Longyou, 400 kilometres south-west of Shanghai.

The finale is the Coffee Day India Rally, held on the coffee plantations roads of Chikmagalur, South India.
