    Last Saturday Nikolay Gryazin took part in the first round of Norwegian rally championship - Sigdalsrally. Despite such names as Ostberg, Grøndal and Solberg on the entry list, the Russian driver won the event with nearly a 1-minute advantage.

    ...and in the second half of the Sigdalsrally times of Oscar Solberg, driving Fabia R5, improved a lot and he set some really good times and even won one (last) stage. (which is also promising for future) Complete results here: http://www.sigdalsrally.no/resultater2/13
    Visit South Moravia. It is the real paradise

    Is this the first time when FIA listens to the drivers?

    "Responding to calls from drivers and teams, FIA European Rally Championship promoter Eurosport Events worked with governing body the FIA to modify the regulations concerning scoring opportunities in the ERC2 category (...)

    Previously drivers could count their best six scores from a possible eight. But feedback from competitors concluded that by allowing drivers to include their best four scores only would lessen costs, reduce the time commitment and ultimately make ERC2 more accessible to more drivers."

    No, it is not first time. Every year there is discussion between drivers, Eurosport and FIA. Unfortunatelly, this is only one thing which was approved by FIA, more other not...

    ERC2 is dead anyway just like gr.N cars. It won't help it to become less useless than it is now. Honestly I have no idea why they keep holding a championship for gr.N cars anymore.

    Yes, it's barely alive, but it isn't that ERC events are overcrowded, additional cup/class is additional crews, even it's one or two of them. It's good for locals, they have chance participate with old cars, and if they reach finish, they get award. I can't see anything bad about it. Don't remember if new R4 cars fit into ERC2 or should be in ERC?

    That was original idea that R4 cars should replace group N cars in ERC2 (or at least from beginning they will start together). But by big surprise for everyone, FIA didnt do it...

    R4 should imo be doing ERC2.

    Just to separate them from the start.

    Then you will get logic, with ERC topclass R5, being one below WRC.

    In 2019 WRC, R4 should be the next WRC3 level, and R2 being JWRC.

    Level WRC Regional
    1 WRCar R5
    2 R5 R4
    3 R4 R2
    4 R2
