2011 European Rally Championship season
Previous: 2010 Next: 2012

The 2011 European Rally Championship season was the 59th season of the FIA European Rally Championship, the European continental championship series in rallying. The season consisted of eleven rallies, beginning with Rally 1000 Miglia on 14 April 2011 and concluding with the Rallye International du Valais on 29 October 2011. Only drivers registered for the European championship were allowed to score points at the events, and they had to compete in a minimum of 8 rallies to be classified in the final championship standings. 28 drivers were registered for the season, the majority (15) were from Italy, four were from Poland, three from Bulgaria, two each from Slovenia and France and one each from Czech Republic and Switzerland.

As in the previous year, Italian driver Luca Rossetti won the European championship, driving an Abarth Grande Punto S2000 car. He won the European championship category in 5 rallies. Second place in the final standings was claimed by Luca Betti (Italy), who won 2 events. Polish driver Michał Sołowow was the ERC winner in 3 events, but did not compete in enough rallies to be classified in the final standings.

Calendar[edit]

The original calendar for the 2011 season featured 12 rallies, the 11 rallies from the previous season plus Rally Bulgaria which returned after one year with the WRC. However, the first event, the ELPA Rally in Greece was cancelled, leaving 11 rallies, 9 of them on tarmac.[1] Two events were shared with the Intercontinental Rally Challenge: Ypres and Zlín.
