PR: The European Rallycross Challenge, abbreviated to ERC, will change it’s name to The Rallycross Challenge.


FIA explained their concerns about the abbreviation which might cause confusion with the European Rally Championship (ERC), promoted by Eurosport. In an agreement with the FIA the abbreviation ERC will not be used for The Rallycross Challenge anymore. Although this means there will be some changes in communication etc. The Rallycross Challenge is happy to cooperate with the FIA as confusion serves none of the parties involved, plus the new name has an ever bigger focus on what it’s all about: Rallycross.

A change of name doesn’t mean a change of plans!
