VRC & VCRS – Victorian Rally & Club Rally Championships
The Victorian Club Rally Series is run each year in the state forests of Victoria. This series is a great way to get involved in rallying at a club level and was contested over 5 rounds in 2016. Based on historic rally formats of navigational and night events it relies on the ability of a navigator to read a map or road book and direct their driver over a planned course covering shire roads and forest tracks at night.
The Victorian Rally Championship evolved in line with the improvement of Victorian forest tracks, and the population of properties along Shire roads – into a more driver-oriented event. Route instructions became comprehensive, making it easier for a crew to avoid getting lost, and results were effectively determined by how fast the drivers drove on the generally narrow forest roads.
