The 2018 FIA World Rally Championship-3 was the sixth and final season of the World Rally Championship-3,[1] an auto racing championship recognised 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.[2]

Nil Solans and Miquel Ibáñez were the reigning drivers' and co-drivers' champions,[3] while ADAC Sachsen were the defending teams' champions. Enrico Brazzoli and Luca Beltrame won the drivers' and co-drivers' championships, becoming the last WRC-3 champions as the series will be discontinued from 2019 onwards. ACI Team Italia won the teams' title.

Calendar[edit]

The championship was being contested over thirteen rounds in Europe, the Middle East, North and South America and Australia.[4]

Calendar changes[edit]

The future of the Rally of Poland was called into question after the FIA repeatedly raised concerns about the event's safety.[14] The FIA had previously ordered a review of the event's safety standards ahead of the 2017 event, threatening to rescind the rally's World Championship status if conditions were not improved.[15] The event was ultimately removed and replaced by the Rally of Turkey, which returned to the calendar for the first time since 2010.[4] The event was based in the resort town of Marmaris in the south-western Muğla Province.[16]
