World Rally Championship-2

The FIA World Rally Championship-2 or WRC-2 (formerly known as Super 2000 World Rally Championship or S-WRC), is a companion rally series to the World Rally Championship, and is driven on the same stages. WRC-2 is limited to production-based cars homologated under the Super 2000, N4, R5 rules. The series began in 2010 and split the Production World Rally Championship (P-WRC), which was previously open to both Super 2000 and Group N4 cars, into two separate competitions, both of which received their own FIA titles. There was also a World Rally Championship Cup for Teams within the S-WRC but this was discontiniued after 2010.

From 2010 to 2012(as S-WRC), there are 10 qualifying rallies for the new series, and at the time of registration entrants must nominate seven rallies, including two outside Europe, in which to score points. The S-WRC is in addition to the WRC Cup for S2000 Teams, which was announced earlier in the year. The S-WRC Teams cup was scraped from 2011 onwards.

From 2013 there's no fixed calendar. The teams can participate in any round of the season with the requirement that teams must contest at least seven events, with their best six results from the first seven events they enter being counted towards their final points tally.
