ERC Teams’ Championship restructured
The popular FIA European Rally Championship for teams will be significantly changed when the 2017 ERC gets underway.
Rather than separate titles in ERC1, ERC2 and ERC3, from next year there will be one ERC Teams’ Championship with each outfit nominating a maximum of three cars, in either four- or two-wheel drive configuration or a combination of both, to score points on each event.
The results of the two highest-placed drivers from a team count. And with points distributed according to the four- and two-wheel-drive classifications, a team could score a maximum of 50 points (25 points for 4WD, 25 points for 2WD) per event.
The changes were approved by the FIA World Motor Sport Council during its final meeting of the year in Vienna, Austria, today.
