1994 Victorian Rally Championship
These were specified in the VRC Standing Regulations.
The VRC was made up exclusively of Special Stage events.
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. Additionally, Formula Commodore (a sub-class of PRC) was included (it appears to have been introduced in 1993 but there were hardly any entrants).
Outright points were allocated 20-15-12-10-8-6-4-3-2-1 for first to tenth. Novice and class points were allocated 9-6-4-3-2-1. With five events, competitors counted their best four results (although this does not appear in the Standing Regs). In 1994 Series Registration was introduced and only registered competitors were eligible for points. However, bona fide Victorian competitors were automatically recognised as registered!
The VRC comprised five events. The Akademos was cancelled due to financial and manpower constraints and in fact was nut run again until 2002. The Rising Sun Rally was also cancelled, citing financial concerns and reduced VRC field sizes.
