    2021 ERC News and Rumors

    It is good to see that ERC is growing into a wider championship, and teams see this as seroes of strong competition. A good place to learn international rallies before moving up to WRC for young talent.

    ERC is perfect place for the Alpine R-GT.

    Many hope for Alpine ERC 2 champion next year.
    Maybe even a cup for that car also in Europe series as Abarth.

    No, only one event (Canarias) of eight is purely well-suited for Alpine with another one being possibly quite good one too (Rome), Barum is already quite GT-unfriendly even when it is asphalt and Hungary is even worse. The other four events are gravel ones.

    Is Alpine working on a gravel kit?

    Btw, like Mirek mentioned, Canarias is the most suitable event for the A110; bit of a shame that there's no top crew using it in this year rally.

    ERC has grown in 2020, and has attracted more teams and drivers.

    Hopefully the series will continue to be seen as a good platform to develop as a driver before going to the WRC series.

    Who will we see in the different classes wanting to become European Champion?

    I think ERC will continue to grow. They're doing a great job providing far better return for less money than WRC2 and WRC3. If a top R5 driver arrives in an ERC event he's one of the stars, if the same driver arrives in a WRC event in WRC2/3, he's just a number in the second category.

    I heard Grégoire Munster is going to do the whole championship. If he keeps improving as he has been doing this year, he could be in the fight for the title.

    ... and in the end even Canarias was terrible for R-GT.
