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.

Concept

Watch the introduction video on how you can enter in your road car, and be safer and have more fun than you thought!

A new concept in rallying will continue in Sydney this summer with the third staging of a five round Twilight Tarmac Rallysprint Series. This will again be run over the challenging tarmac course at the Sydney International Dragway on Thursday nights from October to March.

The Twilight Tarmac Rallysprint series will see crews battling it out over a 3.5 km stage across various tarmac roads within the Sydney International Dragway complex at Eastern Creek on Thursday nights from around 5pm to 10pm during daylight savings.

The series is organised by North Shore Sporting Car Club and they will be run as Level 1 Single Club Rallysprints. They will offer both traditional gravel rally exponents, tarmac rallyists, and novices new to the sport the chance to have a fun night battling the clock as the sun sets.

The Thursday night format has been chosen to allow rally enthusiasts to indulge in their sport across summer without cutting into family and leisure time on weekends. It is also time efficient with the venue located close to the geographic centre of Sydney.
