Other classes

The World Rally Championship also features support championships called the Production car World Rally Championship (PWRC) and the Junior World Rally Championship (JWRC). These championships are contested on the same events and stages as the WRC. In 2008, The PWRC includes eight and the JWRC seven events. In 2007, the junior championship had no events outside Europe so it was known simply as the Junior Rally Championship (JRC).

The Production car World Rally Championship began in 2002, replacing the FIA Group N Cup which had been contested from 1987. Cars in the championship are production-based and homologated under Group N or Super 2000 rules.
