On all rounds of the ERC, points will be allocated to the top 15 classified finishers as follows:

Pos 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15
Pts 30 24 21 19 17 15 13 11 9 7 5 4 3 2 1

Bonus points, which are rewarded in part to encourage drivers who fail to finish a leg to restart on the subsequent leg, will be allocated to the top five finishers at the end of each leg as follows:

First: 5 points
Second: 4 points
Third: 3 points
Fourth: 2 points
Fifth: 1 point
