Embassy/ERA European Rallycross Championship

The Embassy/ERA European Rallycross Championship was the forerunner of the FIA European Rallycross Championship. It was organised in 1973 and 1974 by automobile clubs from Austria, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Sweden and Finland (joined in 1974) under the supervision of the Thames Estuary Automobile Club (TEAC) of Great Britain on behalf of the manufacturer of Embassy cigarettes, tobacco company W. D. & H. O. Wills. At the end of 1974 the organisers founded the European Rallycross Association (ERA), before the motor sport of Rallycross was officially recognised by the FIA in 1976.
