ERC Announce Revamped Calendar For 2024

After receiving approval from the FIA World Motor Sport Council, WRC Promoter GmbH, the organization driving the promotion of ERC (European Rally Championship), has unveiled a dynamic and extensively overhauled calendar for the forthcoming season. The revised schedule features three events on gravel and five on asphalt, strategically distributed across the continent.

The 2024 calendar marks a substantial revamp of events, comparable in scale to the changes made in 2013, all the while preserving key rallies that have been integral to its enduring success.

“We’ve worked hard to deliver a calendar that blends new events with rallies that have, for many years, played a key role in the ongoing success of the ERC,” said championship manager Iain Campbell. “We are very pleased with the balance that’s been achieved as it’s important to freshen up the calendar whenever it’s practical and beneficial to do so, without losing out on the opportunity to include more long-standing events.”

After commemorating its 70th-anniversary season in 2023, the ERC is set to embark on a renewed journey, visiting iconic events such as Rally Islas Canarias, Rally di Roma Capitale, and Barum Czech Rally Zlín. Notably, Rally Hungary undergoes a facelift, and the ERC introduces two unexplored events, Rali Ceredigion in the United Kingdom and Rally Silesia in Poland.

The second edition of the Royal Rally of Scandinavia is scheduled just a weekend before Mid-Summer (13 - 15 June). Organizers aim to boost fan attendance by aligning the event with a music festival, emphasizing the Swedish rally's festive atmosphere.

Rally Estonia, having successfully hosted the WRC from 2020 to 2023, continues its strong Baltic connection with its fourth appearance in the ERC in early July. Below is an overview of each round in the 2024 ERC, promising a season filled with excitement and new challenges.
