This was the inaugural and so far, final season of the championship. It became a one-race championship at Circuit Zolder after many scheduling issues.[1][2]

Race calendar edit

On 14 January, the provisional calendar was announced. The series supported the 2022 FIA ETCR - eTouring Car World Cup at all of its races.[1] On 22 February 2022, it was announced that Istanbul Park would host the first round instead of the Istanbul Street Circuit.[2] On 17 May, it was announced that Istanbul FIA ETCR round was postponed to November due to the organizational issues, so Istanbul ERA round was also postponed.[6] Only practice sessions were held at Hungaroring and Circuito del Jarama.[7] The round of the championship at Vallelunga Circuit was cancelled on 19 July due to logistical problems.[8]
