World Rally Championship-3 (2013–2018)
The FIA World Rally Championship-3, or WRC-3 was a companion rally series to the World Rally Championship, and was driven on the same stages. The series began in 2013 and was limited to production-based cars homologated under the R1, R2 and R3 rules, until its cancellation at the end of 2018.
From 2013 the previous Production World Rally Championship was cancelled and replaced by WRC-3. With the introduction of Group R the new WRC-3 was contested by 2WD production based cars from R1, R2 and R3 classes. Teams and drivers competing in the series were free to contest any rallies forming the World Rally Championship. They had to nominate up to six events to score points in, and their best five results from these six events counted towards their final championship points score. From 2017 this was changed to nominating seven rounds of which their six best results counted. In 2018, FIA announced that the World Rally Championship-3 was being discontinued. 2018 was the final season of the WRC-3.
