"Rallye International du Valais has enjoyed a long association with the ERC and is popular with drivers and teams due to the spectacular scenery, demanding special stages, central location and significant fan base," said Jean-Baptiste Ley, ERC co-ordinator. "With the ERC calendar being reduced from 11 to 10 events for 2015, Rallye International du Valais was announced as the reserve event on the initial calendar.

"Since the end of the 2014 season, we have remained in close contact with the event promoter and we are pleased to announce the rally's inclusion on the ERC calendar once again."
