The FIA European Rally Championship is celebrating International Women’s Day ahead of the 2019 ERC season when the ERC Ladies’ Trophy will once again be up for grabs.

ERC promoter Eurosport Events remains committed to encouraging the participation of women in motorsport and revamped the ERC Ladies’ Trophy for 2018 accordingly.

Rather than recognise the achievements of women when competing against other women drivers, to promote gender equality, drivers score points based on where they appear in the final four- or two-wheel-drive order using a dedicated scoring system.

All rounds of the ERC are included in the ERC Ladies’ Trophy with all classes (ERC1, ERC2 and ERC3) eligible. Drivers count their best four scores.

The scoring system is as follows: 1 = 100; 2 = 90; 3 = 80; 4 = 75; 5 = 70; 6 = 65; 7 = 60; 8 = 55; 9 = 50; 10 = 45; 11 = 43; 12 = 41; 13 = 39; 14 = 37; 15 = 35; 16 = 33; 17 = 31; 18 = 29; 19 = 27; 20 = 25; 21 = 23; 22 = 21; 23 = 19; 24 = 17; 25 = 15; 26 = 13; 27 = 11; 28 = 9; 29 = 7; 30 = 5; all remaining positions = 1 point.
