2019 Victorian Rally Championship

The 2019 Hino Geelong Victorian Rally Championship was won by Arron Windus and Daniel Brkic, primarily in a Subaru Impreza WRX. The year did not start well for Arron, with a DNF in the Mitta  Mountain Rally (engine failure) and in the first heat of the Ada River Rally. With a change from the Lancer Evo 9 to the Impreza WRX, reliability improved at they took nine wins (CHECK?) from the 14 rounds.

Series Regulations

These were specified in the VRC Standing Regulations, but we are yet to get a copy. They are assumed to be substantially the same as the previous year.

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

Eligible vehicles were PRC, Group N, Group N(P), S2000, Historic Rally Cars, Classic Rally Cars, Club Rally Cars and CAMS Group G2. ARC G2 were not eligible for VRC points except class awards, while S1600, Group R5, AP4 and G4 were not eligible for VRC points or class awards.

Awards were made for outright champions, 2WD, Clubman and Novice. There were also car class awards as follows: PRC and Group N up to 1400cc, PRC 1401-1600cc, PRC 1601-2000cc, PRC 2WD over 2000cc, PRC 4WD over 2000cc (split into two classes, essentially pre and post 1998, pre excluding any vehicles with fully active differentials, post including S2000), Historic Rally Cars, Classic Rally Cars, Club Rally Cars,  S2000 and ARC G2.

All awards were allocated 30-25-21-18-16-14-12-10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 for first to fifteenth.  Crew registration was automatic for the first half of the season, but crews members could elect not to register for VRC points. With fourteen rounds, the worst three results were dropped. All awards required competitors to complete in at least 50% of the events.
