These were specified in VRC Standing Regulations.

The VRC was made up exclusively of Special Stage events with between 50 km and 200 km of special stages.

Eligible vehicles were Group G and PRC.

Awards were made for outright champions, State Recognised (previously Grade 2, Grade 3 also assumed to be eligible) and Clubman (Grades 3 and 4 only). This year an award was also introduced for the first Production Rally Car.
