A document of 17 pages with the rules for the by FIA to be approved 2013 European Rallycross Challenge (ERC) has been published by the organising body, the Dutch ASN KNAF.


“The aim of the European Rallycross Challenge is to organise events on approved Rallycross circuits mainly in Central Europe on a level that is closer to the different National Rallycross Championships than to the more professional FIA European Rallycross Championship. The aim of these regulations, which are mostly based on the former FIA regulations of 2011 that are still valid in the countries where the Challenge takes place and in this way they set the conditions common to the European Rallycross Challenge events. They are intended for ASN affiliated clubs organising one or more events that form a part of the European Rallycross Challenge. The European Rallycross Challenge is a by the KNAF (ASN) approved Challenge run under the FIA International Series, level 4/Bronze rules and organised and promoted by the KNAF in the Netherlands.”

The KNAF claims that its document is based on more than 40 years of Rallycross experience and contains all the rules and regulations to create an attractive and fair challenge. They think it suits their motto “Rallycross the way it’s meant to be” and that drivers and fans alike will get the most out of Rallycross. Most of the [max. 8] races for the European Rallycross Challenge will be two day events. Entry fees should be budget-friendly and there will be attractive price money for the top 10 drivers of all three car categories per event, while at the end of the series price money for the top 6 drivers in the final rankings of all three classes will be awarded as well. The proposed rules need to be approved by the FIA World Motor Sport Council, the next WMSC meeting is due for March 8.
