volksMuller Gravel Rallysprint

Round 4 of the NSW Shannons Rallysprint Series

The Sunday format has been chosen to allow rally enthusiasts the chance to indulge in their sport without cutting into family and leisure time on an evening or traditional Saturday format.

It is also time efficient with the venue located close to the geographic centre of Sydney.

The event is run as two events – an S1 event and an S2 event

No drivers licence and no civil car rego is needed for either event.

S2 Rallysprint Event – part of the CAMS NSW Shannons Rallysprint Series:

  • To score points you must comply with the CAMS S2 rallysprint rules.
  • You need a clubman rally licence (minimum), a (34 or 36mm) restrictor and a full roll cage.
  • FHR must be worn but NO driving suit is needed.

S1 Rallysprint Event:

  • If you do not comply with the rules for the S2 event, you can still enter the S1 event!
  • For the S1 event you DO NOT need: a restrictor, roll cage, FHR, driving suit or log book.
  • You must have a CAMS L2S licence (minimum).
  • If you enter the S1 event you do not score points towards the CAMS NSW Shannons Rallysprint Series.

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

As a Rallysprint, the event 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 L2S licence or higher, opening the event up for novices wanting to get a taste of rallying before making a larger commitment.

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

Course

The road is 80% smooth gravel.

With another $10,000 worth of upgrades since the event last year, the surface is incredibly good (again).

Last year, cars competed with road suspension on road tyres, that’s how good the course is!

20% of the course is grass that will turn to smooth dirt after the first pass of cars, 5 % is asphalt in a straight line, so tyre wear is minor.

3 runs in each direction will be allowed.

Results will be based on the cumulative time of your best two runs in each direction.

The same driver can enter more than once, as long as:
