2013 European Rally Championship

2013 European Rally Championship
Previous: 2012 Next: 2014

The 2013 European Rally Championship season was the 61st season of the FIA European Rally Championship, the European continental championship series in rallying. The season was also the first following the merger between the European Rally Championship and the Intercontinental Rally Challenge. French broadcaster Eurosport, which previously organised the IRC, assumed the duties of organising the ERC.

The season started in Austria on 3 January, with the running of the Internationale Jänner Rallye, and finished on 9 November at the International Rallye du Valais.[1] Jan Kopecký won the Championship after scoring a total of six victories and two more podium finishes.

CalendarEdit

The calendar for the 2013 season featured twelve rallies, which were drawn from the 2012 European Rally Championship and Intercontinental Rally Challenge calendars. A final calendar of thirteen events was confirmed on 15 December 2012,[1] however in April 2013 Rally San Marino lost its place on the calendar.[2]
