The Victoria Club Rally Series (VCRS) is run each year involving invited car clubs. Sticking to the roots of rallying VCRS events incorporate both navigational and mapped components and are generally run at night in the state forests of Victoria. The series is scored over a minimum of 4 rounds each year hosted by the clubs invited to the series. Drivers and Navigators graded from ‘Rookie’ through to ‘B’ grade are eligible to contest the series in rally cars conforming to the Series Regulations.
This year the series will comprise 6 rounds. The opening round will not be until April where crews will enjoy the forest roads of Powelltown and Neerim. Then heading over to the east, crews will compete in their first night event of the series around Murray Goldfields region. This event will also include a Novice Trial for first time competitors. Following this, the Nissan Nightmoves will take competitors into the Heathcote and Rushworth forest for one the series most famous and longest running events.
Back into the Yarra Valley, home of some of the best roads in Victoria used in all forms of rallying up to the ARC, crews will be challenged with long endurance stages at the Spring 200. For the first time crews will be treated to a combined event with the South Australian Rally Championship Special Stage rally in the South West. The series will again conclude with the return of the Autumn Midnight Trial, hosted by CCRMIT that will treat competitors to the best roads around Heyfield.
