Event/General

Does my co driver need experience?

No, the course is easy to follow so they can enjoy the ride or give you suggestions!

Does my turbo car need to have a restrictor to compete?

No, only rallies require restrictors.
As a rallysprint, both our gravel and tarmac events do not need turbo cars to have these.

How do I get scrutineering?

We can do scrutineering on the day but you MUST be there early so we can get through everybody (3-4pm would be ideal).

Alternatively, please think about doing regional scrutineering so you can get straight into the action Regional Scrutineers

How do I get a start / car number?

Every event has new (car) numbers that we provide at event documentation.
The numbers are based on single or dual entry as well as shared drivers and co drivers.
Typically the last event winner is car 1 and then so on, BUT this is not a %100 seeded field as we also often group cars together based on model and speed.
Sorry, we are unable to guarantee car number.

Do I need a special rally car?

No, almost any car can enter. Last year’s winner used his road car and drove to and from the event.

Is there any gravel?

No, the course is 100% asphalt.

I don't own a race suit, do I need one?

No, you do not need specialised race wear. See the supplementary regulations for clothes you can wear.

Will I crash my car?

That is up to you, the course is no different to a suburban street or freeway.

You decide how fast you go.

Do I need special racing brakes or modifications?

No, 100% stock cars are common.

Why do I have to join NSSCC?

The event is run as a closed-to-club S1 Rallysprint, this permits us to have more freedoms than other types of events, (see summer membership deal).

If I am a member of another club do I still need to join NSSCC?

Yes, but if your club is a CAMS club then you can get special discounted NSSCC summer membership for only $25.

NOTE to claim the junior entry discounted package you can not use this deal.

See here to become a summer member http://nsscc.com.au/portal/

Do I need to have a Co-driver?

Yes, the rules require a passenger.

How involved they are is up to you!

I cant find a Co driver?

Easy, please enter the event with TBA and secure your spot, we can then help you find a co driver, before the event, please contact us OR we will find a co driver for you on the night.

Does my passenger need special training?

No, all they need to do is get you to arrive at the start on time and carry the time card and hand it in at the finish!

I have a car with rally rego (that I get renewed yearly) do I need to attend scrutineering at each event?

Yes, every event has separate scrutineering to ensure all cars are safe, within 7 days of the event.

I am doing the whole series, do I need to get scrutineered every event?

Yes, at present we need you to have your car checked every event, either at the event or regionally. (see options) NOTE See series entries special support info, to make this easy!

I want to enter the EVO OZ Tarmac Cup, how do I do this?

Last year this was a success and it should hopefully be on again this year!

Read the info here and join the club (its Free)

I have a race car and no passenger seat, can I enter?

As long as your car can safely carry a passenger, and your car complies (see FAQ above) yes you can enter.

Is there any noise restrictions?

The event is run at Sydney Dragway!

Unless your car louder than a top fuel car you will be okay.

Can I help promote the event?

Yes, we would love to have you help promote and drive entries for the event. Having more entrants will ensure the event is brought back next year.

For all the information needed, refer people back to this site http://nsscc.com.au/twilight-rallysprint or find the relevant information and logos here.

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.
