FORMAT
The Sunday format has been chosen to allow rally enthusiasts 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”:

  • The NSW V Sport Rallysprint series event.
    To score points and enter you must comply with level 2 rallysprint rules. (you need a clubman rally licence  [minimum] and a full roll cage)
  • Other than above, you can enter this Non NSW rallysprint event.
    It complies with a Level 1 Rallysprint.  (and score no points and have no roll cage and have al least a L2s CAMS licence)

COURSE
The road is 90% smooth gravel.
with $15,000 worth of upgrades in February, the surface is incredibly good.
%20 of the course is grass that will turn to smooth dirt after the first pass of cars.
3 runs in each direction will be allowed.
Results will be based on the cumulative time of your best two runs in each direction
