2011[edit]

In the 2011 championship were planned to be held 9 rallies, the same from the previous year and the new entry Raliul Moldovei.[2] However, Raliul Argeşului was canceled three days before the start for safety reasons.[3] Raliul Târgu Mureş, held at the start of May, was stopped at halfway stage due to unexpected snowy weather,[4] and only half of the points were awarded.[5] The champion at the end of the season was Valentin Porcişteanu, last year's runner-up, who had won four of the eight rallies held. Second place in the overall standings came Bogdan Marişca, while third came Dan Gârtofan. Previous year's champion Gergő Szabó finished fifth, behind Marco Tempestini fourth.[6]
