Campeonato Europeo FIA de Rally

SEASON 2022

Campeonato Europeo FIA de Rally

Created in 1953 and streamlined in 2004, the oldest international rally series in existence is not only the ultimate training ground for young talents aiming for the top of the sport, it remains a destination in itself.

With a clear path of progression from national level to the world stage to mirror the FIA Rally Sporting Pyramid, career-focused competitors can climb the ranks by getting their first taste of international competition in either Rally5 or Rally4 machinery before progressing to Rally3 and then to the ERC’s headlining Rally2 category.

The WRC is very much the next step for aspiring world champions who can switch to WRC3 or WRC2 depending on their level of experience and financial resources. However, the ERC remains a platform for all-comers to compete in an international environment, meaning age and ability are not barriers to entry. Several sub-categories exist, and the points allocation is specifically designed for more drivers to be rewarded more often.   

Titles up for grabs

  • FIA European Championship for Drivers, Co-Drivers and Teams
  • FIA ERC3 for Drivers and Co-Drivers
  • FIA ERC4 for Drivers and Co-Drivers
  • FIA ERC4 Junior for drivers aged 27 and under on January 1, 2022, competing in Rally4 or Rally5 cars on Pirelli tyres

What’s new for 2022?

  • Power Stage on all rounds, follows the same successful format used in the FIA World Rally Championship with live television and points awarded to the fastest five drivers. As a result, bonus points are no longer awarded at the end of each leg of an ERC event. 
  • All FIA Priority Drivers, any driver appearing in the top 15 of the final ERC championship standings in 2021 or appearing in the top 15 of the provisional ERC standings of the current season are required to choose their starting position for the opening leg of an event.
  • At the end of leg one, the top 15 (rather than the top 10) are reseeded for leg two.
  • To score ERC points, drivers must use tyres supplied by a manufacturer registered with the FIA and WRC Promoter under a new system from 2022.
  • Following the creation of a two-tier structure in 2017, the ERC Junior Championship is streamlined and run as the ERC4 Junior Championship for Rally4 and Rally5 cars equipped with tyres from official partner Pirelli.
