New names for ERC Junior categories

The FIA ERC Junior Under 28 and FIA ERC Junior Under 27 championships will be renamed for 2019, bringing them inline with other FIA regional championships. ERC Junior U28, for young stars in R5 cars, becomes the FIA ERC1 Junior Championship, while the Pirelli-supported ERC Junior 27, for rising talents in R2 machinery, will be titled the FIA ERC3 Junior Championship from 2019.

ERC2 goes from strength to strength

On the back of its most successful season yet in terms of competitor numbers, ERC2 is set for another strong year in 2019 with cars conforming to the R4-K and RGT technical regulations permitted to take part alongside traditional N4 machinery, such as the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X and Subaru Impreza STI.
