A Step Up to Stage Rally
The SA Rally Regularity Series has been growing in popularity as the events are an excellent cost effective introduction to full on Special Stage rallying.
The series runs alongside the South Australian Rally Championship, on the same roads as the main field and as part of the main event.
What Is Regularity?
Running in conjunction with a special stage rally, a regularity rally challenges crews to complete the stages in a time as close as possible to the time allowed, whilst observing a maximum speed limit at all times. It really is a team effort, driver & navigator working closely to ensure an ‘on time’ arrival at the next control, never too early or too late.
Regularity isn’t about being the fastest crew – it’s a category of competition where driver and co-driver must work closely together, combining speed and strategy to arrive at the end of each stage in a target time set by the event organisers. Penalties are applied for arriving early or late and the maximum speed is limited to 110 km/h at all times. Apart from that it’s just like a regular rally – with time controls, road books, timecards and service times
