Series Regulations

These were specified in the VRC Standing Regulation but we don’t have a copy.

The VRC was made up exclusively of Special Stage events. Navigators were re-named co-drivers from this year!

Eligible vehicles were PRC and Group N.

Awards were made for outright champions and Novice. There were also car class awards as follows: PRC 2WD up to 1300cc, PRC 2WD 1301-1600cc, PRC 2WD 1601-2000cc, PRC 2WD over 2000cc, PRC 4WD, Group N 2WD under 1600cc, Group N 2WD over 1600cc, Group N 4WD.

Outright and Novice points were allocated 20-15-12-10-8-6-4-3-2-1 for first to  tenth. Class points were allocated 9-6-4-3-2-1. With five events, competitors counted their best four results.


The VRC  comprised five events. The second round, the Alpine, was also an ARC round but the VRC events was a subset of the ARC event. With the demise of the Light Car Club, the Blue Ribbon Rally was cancelled, but then resurrected by BAC, but then seemingly cancelled.
