European Historic Rally Calender Revealed

  • 9 rounds, 7 countries, tarmac and gravel events on some iconic stages
  • New overall European Historic Champion title introduced for 2024
  • Increased focus and new titles for smaller engine and front wheel drive cars

The 2024 calendar for the FIA European Historic Rally Championship was approved by the FIA World Motor Sport Council.  The championship calendar will feature nine rounds on tarmac and gravel, as well as introducing three new titles: The FIA European Historic Overall Champion title for driver/co-driver, the FIA Historic 1600cc Rally Trophy title and the FIA Historic FWD Rally Trophy title.

FIA is delighted to launch the FIA European Historic Rally Championship calendar for 2024, with the benchmark international historic rally championship visiting seven countries for nine events next season.

Following a successful 2023 season, the 2024 campaign will kick off on the highly popular Rally Costa Brava in March, before 8 further rounds across Europe on both tarmac and gravel surfaces. The series retains its points scoring system where the six best scores from the nine rounds will count towards the four category championships for historic cars homologated up to 1990.

As part of a range of competitor friendly moves for the new season, the FIA is introducing new titles into the championship to support competitors at all ends of the field. For the first time in 2024, competitors will be able to compete for an overall FIA European Historic Rally Champion title for driver/co-driver. Whilst the Category Championships for cars from different eras of the sport will still remain next season, the new overall title will be fought across all nine rounds of the series, providing an extra incentive for those looking to battle at the very sharp end of the EHRC field for a prestigious new title.

To further incentivise support for smaller capacity and front wheel drive cars, two additional titles have been created. The FIA Historic 1600cc Rally Trophy will be open to cars up to 1600cc from Categories 1-4, giving smaller engine cars their own title to fight for during the season, with six best scores to count. Recognising the increasing number of front wheel drive historic cars competing in Europe, a new FIA Historic FWD Rally Trophy will also debut in 2024, giving competitors a new focused title to battle for during the season, with their six best scores counting.

The highly prized FIA EHRC Teams Trophy will once again be open to competitors who join forces together as teams, along with a new bonus points system. This new incentive will offer an additional 10 bonus starting points on two rounds of the series (Historic Rally of Asturias and Historic Acropolis Rally), to further motivate competitors when planning out their championship campaign.

The nine round championship offers great flexibility for drivers using historic vehicles with some iconic events and stages across the year. Recognising that parts availability isn’t always ‘off the shelf’, the series enables drivers to pick a programme that suits their budget, whilst still being able to compete for the category championships by using their six best scores from the nine available rounds across the year.

Highly competitive event entry fees and a low FIA EHRC championship registration fee (for driver and co-driver) remain for 2024, to ensure the series is open to all competitors with all budget levels.
