The 2015 Rally GB was the final rally of the 2015 season, held between 12-15 November 2015.

The rally win went to the world champions Sebastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia, and Citroen's Kris Meeke was second, thus scoring the best finish in Rally GB for a British driver since Richard Burns, the last Briton to date to win Rally GB, back in 2000. The winner last time out, Andreas Mikkelsen of Volkswagen, was third. Jari-Matti Latvala, the third VW, endured a frustrating end to the year having went into a ditch on stage two. 

The season ended on a extremely poignant note as the event was marred by the atrocities of the Paris terrorist attacks on the second day (Friday 13 November) that occurred in Ogier's home country whilst he was leading the rally. Thus, the celebrations were muted and the WRC fraternity paid tribute to the victims, especially Ogier and Ingrassia who draped a French flag over their car as a mark of respect.

It was not the first time that Rally GB experienced such sadness; as in 2005, tributes were also paid after the death of co-driver Michael Park when Markko Martin crashed on the final day.
