The Development Rally Series will form part of the Clubman Rally Series – a term that’s familiar to many a seasoned competitor – will consist of relaxed, highly social events designed for competitors who prefer basic rallies without the use of pace notes.  They will be single day events, structured to minimise time and cost impacts to competitors.  In a lot of cases, Clubman events will be able to be contested without the need for overnight accommodation.

The Clubman Rally Series will cater to all levels of rallying, with the following categories at each event:

  • Clubman – similar to the current Development Rally Series, for experienced competitors with a seeding cut-off to restrict the fastest State-level competitors from stealing the Clubman glory.
  • Development – a new category specifically designed to encourage more Novice crews to participate in rallying.  The Development category will be restricted to competitors with limited experience in the sport, with an appropriate seeding cut-off.  The category will enable novice crews to compete in the same events as more the experienced crews, who can act as advisors and mentors.
  • Hyundai – this will be a Series in its own right for the popular Hyundai Excels providing budget, low-stress rallying for all driver levels.  This is highly recommended as a budget, entry level series.
  • All-comers – for those crews whose driver seeding exceeds the cut-off for Clubman competitors.  The Rally Panel would prefer these competitors to contest the NSWRC, but recognises a growing demand by top level competitors to contest a series of basic, low-cost events.  This category won’t have the prestige of the Clubman, Development or Hyundai categories but its winners will receive some end-of-year recognition.

NSW Rally Panel Chair John Sparkes said, “Everything we’re doing on the Panel is designed to encourage increased participation in the sport.”

“It’s particularly important to have a steady stream of new, young competitors entering the sport, and equally as important to retain existing competitors and even to get some “retirees” back into the forests.”

“The new Clubman Rally Series will cater to all these needs and we’re hoping for a big year with the series,” he added.
