HRA Forest Classic Series announced

At it's recent committee meeting the Historic Rally Association approved a proposal to conduct a new series to be called the Forest Classic Series. This is a series open to all HRA members who have a car which complies with the requirements to compete in the Alpine Rally of East Gippsland.

The concept was first floated by Peter and Neil Schey as a way of capturing some of the friendly competition, spirit and camaraderie which is found at the Alpine and as a way of enticing some of those cars which we only ever seem to see at the Alpine to compete a bit more regularly. We make no apologies for the fact that this is a series aimed squarely at crews who enjoy speed events with minimal or no map reading requirements.

So here's the series guidelines, they have been kept very simple on purpose, we want people to come and have fun, not play for sheepstations.

Forest Classic Series (FCS) series to be run over the course of one year and would consist of 4 events, in an Alpine year the Alpine will be the final round.

Powerplay Rallysprint
Moornappa Mountain Rally
Bagshot Rallysprint
Victoria Cross Rally

Cars eligible to run in the FCS will be aligned to the classes as run in the Alpine Rally of 2013 as listed below

H68,
H81,
P81,
PRC Modern,
Classic Rally Cars
Club Rally Cars

· all cars to be pre 1999, 2 wheel drive and non-turbo only.

Both crew members must be current HRA members and must register their intention to participate with the series coordinator prior to their first event.

Points to be allocated on a 10 to 1 system for the first 10 placing’s overall after each event with end of series trophies to be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd placing overall.
