The FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship is spread through a diverse range of  countries, climates, cultures and a huge population base of over 2.5 billion people.

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.

The APRC then heads to Malaysia and  the very hot and humid Rally of Johor run through the palm oil plantations, not far from the border with Singapore.

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.

APRC.TV Ltd has been the official television producer for the championship since  1999 and in 2017, 351 million households in 196 countries watched coverage of the APRC.
