The 2015 FIA World Rally Championship-3 is the third season of the World Rally Championship-3, an auto racing championship recognized by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile, running in support of the World Rally Championship. It was created when the Group R class of rally car was introduced in 2013. The Championship is composed by thirteen Rallies, and Drivers and Teams must nominate a maximum of six event. The best five results will be counted towards the championship.[1]

Stéphane Lefebvre is the defending champion, as he won the 2014 title.

Calendar[edit]

The calendar is identical to that used by the World Rally Championship. The calendar was announced at a meeting of the FIA World Motor Sport Council in Beijing in September 2014.[2] The season will maintain the same rallies as the 2014 season and will be contested over thirteen rounds in Europe, North and South America and Australia.

Notes:

  • ^1  — The Rallies of Germany and France are provisional inclusions subject to negotiation of a new agreement between their organisers and series promoters.[2]

Calendar changes[edit]

  • The Rallye Monte Carlo will adopt Rally-2 regulations, allowing retired competitors to restart the event the next day with a time penalty.[3] Prior to 2015, the Rallye Monte Carlo was the only event being run without Rally-2 regulations.
  • The Rallies of Portugal and Argentina will swap places in the calendar.[3]
  • The Rally of Portugal will move from its base in the town of Faro in the Algarve region—where it had been headquartered from 2007 until 2014—and relocate to the country's north, its original home prior until its removal from the calendar in 2002.[3]

Regulation changes[edit]

  • In the WRC 2 and WRC 3 Championships for Teams, only the best placed car in a team will be taken into account for points.[5]
  • A car which has not started from the start line within 20 seconds will be considered as retired and will be able to restart under Rally 2 on the subsequent day.[5]
  • The transmission of performance data or information to or from a competing car, not in relation with safety, is forbidden during special stages to help promote greater competition.[5]
