The FIA World Motor Sport Council met in St Petersburg, Russia, on 5 December. During the meeting, a number of proposals presented by the FIA Rally Commission, some of which related to the FIA European Rally Championship, were approved. A summary of those appears below.

2019 FIA European Rally Championship and Latvian Rally Championship round Rally Liepāja will contain the best stages of the region – the so called “golden fund” of Latvian rallying. Next year’s route is significantly expanded, going from Talsi to Liepāja and giving the participants an opportunity to enjoy the best Latvian stages, with the spectators getting the chance to see the European Rally Championship drivers fight to be the fastest from the best spectator areas in Latvia. Rally Liepāja will take place on May 24-26, 2019.

Today, the FIA European Rally Championship (FIAERC) calendar* was published, with Rally Liepāja being included for the seventh time. The first three Latvian FIAERC events (2013-2015) took place in winter, followed by three autumn events (2016-2018), but the 2019 Rally Liepāja will take place in the spring, from May 24 to 26.

Rally Liepāja concluded today in Dinsdurbe, Paplaka, Vecpils and Podnieki, serving as the final round of the FIA European Rally Championship and Latvian Rally Championship seasons. Sports Racing Technologies driver Nikolay Gryazin managed to hold onto his lead, winning the Junior U28 title and finishing runner-up in the overall standings of the European championship. Today’s Latvian Rally Championship round was won by Eurolamp World Rally Team driver Valerii Gorban.
