Rally Sprint events are a stepping stone to performance rallies. Car safety and preparation rules match those of performance rally. Some driver equipment requirements are relaxed but CARS does recommend using all of the performance rally safety equipment if possible. Rallysprint events are made up of stages less than 3km in length with an average speed slower than 80km/h. Only one car can be on a stage at a time.
Regional Performance Rally events are the first level of performance rally events that require specific licencing and full safety equipment as listed in the National Rally Regulations. Regional events and championships are normally strongly contested and offer tight competition. The level of equipment is generally more modest than is found at the highest level in the National Championship but the cars are fully prepared performance rally cars. Total stage distance is less than you’ll find at a national and regional organisers tend to stay away from long stages.
