Event Points & Results

Results will be based on driver and co driver separately.

In previous years it has been based on driver AND co driver as a team, but this made scoring confusing.

According to North Shore Sporting Car Club’s president, Brett Middleton, the Twilight series will particularly give tarmac rally exponents a chance to hone their skills and technique while having a fun evening in a safe and controlled environment.

As a Class S1 Rallysprint the Twilight Tarmac Series will be run under the CAMS National Rally Code and Rallysprint regulations with both a driver and co-driver in each car, both requiring a level 2S licence or higher and with closed top cars not requiring a roll cage, opening the event up for novices wanting to get a taste of rallying before making a larger commitment

“We also recommend full harnesses however appropriate lap sash belts will be allowed and drivers 14 and over are able to enter and take part in the Twilight Tarmac events,” he said.

Each car will have the chance to have at least five runs over the course at each event and cars can be entered multiple times with a different driver for each entry.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

  • Scrutineering?
    We can do scrutineering on the day but you MUST APPLY FIRST  and be there early so we can get through everybody (8 am would be ideal). Alternatively, please think about doing regional scrutineering so you can get straight into the action Regional Scrutineers
