World Rally Championship-3

The FIA World Rally Championship-3, or WRC-3 (formerly known as Production World Rally Championship, or PWRC), is a companion rally series to the World Rally Championship, and is driven on the same stages. WRC-3 is limited to production-based cars homologated under the R1, R2 and R3 rules. The series began in 2002, replacing the FIA Group N Rally Championship and it was for Group N cars. The cars used were modified road cars, often based on turbocharged, four wheel drive versions of standard small cars such as the Subaru Impreza WRX and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, although a wide range of vehicles are homologated by the FIA for use in Group N. Apart from FIA sanctioned events, a lot of rallies at national levels are run under Group N.

Calendar

Until 2012 PWRC was support series to the WRC in selected rounds. Like S-WRC, the PWRC calendar consisted of 8 races(as of 2012) with 2 rallies outside Europe. For 2013 the fixed calendar was scrapped. Instead, teams and drivers competing in the series are free to contest any of thirteen rallies that form the 2013 World Rally Championship. They must nominate up to six events to score points in, and their best five results from these six events will count towards their final championship points score.

Changes for 2013

From 2013, the Production WRC was renamed WRC-3.[1] With the introduction of Group R the new WRC-3 was to be for 2WD production based cars from Group R1, R2 and R3. As a result, no other cars under Group N and A were to be homologated. The current N4 cars were supposed to compete instead in WRC-2, alongside the current S2000, R4 and R5 cars.
