2012 Victorian Rally Championship
These were specified in the VRC Standing Regulations, which were substantially the same as the previous year.
The VRC was made up exclusively of Special Stage events with competitive distances between 50 and 230 km.
Eligible vehicles were PRC, Group N, Group N(P), FIA Group R, SUV, Showroom Rally Cars and Historic Rally Cars. FIA Super 1600 and Super2000 as well as Classic Rally Cars and Club Rally Cars may enter but are not eligible for VRC points (except for the CRC class with both Classic and Club Rally Cars).
Awards were made for outright champions, 2WD, Clubman and Novice. There were also car class awards as follows: PRC up to 1400cc, PRC 1401-1600cc, PRC 1601-2000cc, PRC 2WD over 2000cc, PRC 4WD over 2000cc (split into two classes, pre and post 1991) , Group N under 1400cc, Group N 1401-1600cc, Group N 1601-2000cc, Group N over 2000cc, Historic Rally Cars and Classic Rally Cars.
All awards were allocated 30-25-21-18-16-14-12-10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 for first to fifteenth. With twelve rounds, the worst two results were dropped. Series Registration was introduced back in 1994 and only registered competitors were eligible for points. However, bona fide Victorian competitors were automatically recognised as registered! All awards required competitors to complete in at least 50% of the events.
There were 6 VRC events in 2012. Rally Bonnie Doon was calendared as the final round but was cancelled. Each event had two heats, hence 12 rounds.
