This single venue road rally which was a prototype of the “Targa Rallies” which will replace our Gymkhanas next year.
A Navigational Rally permit allows the car rules to be less restrictive than a Road Rally (so cars with more than 4 cylinders and turbo-diesels are still allowed); the only navigation involved is interpreting the test diagrams.
The main changes to the rules are:
Classes are based on experience, not vehicles.
Competitors may only compete in each capacity once, so no double-navigating.
Current Tax Disc required.
Restrictions on number of cylinders and carburetor chokes have been dropped - so 4 carburetor chokes are allowed.
Bodywork is not required to be one colour, in line with the 2013 rules allowing graphics on daylight road rallies.
