Rally – Getting Started

A rally event is made up of several high speed special stages. These stages can be held on public or private roads which are closed to the public. The roads can be sealed (tarmac) or unsealed (gravel). Each driver and co-driver completes a timed run of each special stage, attempting to drive the distance in the shortest possible time. The role of the co-driver is to read route instructions to the driver from a road book which details intersections and some hidden hazards on the course. The special stages are linked by touring stages which are the means of getting from one stage to the next, and are driven at normal road speeds and rules, and therefore require a road-registered vehicle.

Also very popular are Targa rallies which are run on closed sealed roads.

To obtain an R Grade licence for both drivers and co-drivers, competitors must first be a member of one of our member clubs. Once you have a current club membership, you will need to pass the R Grade Exam (see Licence Examinations), and complete the licence application process through the MotorSport NZ Online system.
