History of TRC's Gimmick Classes

From TRCWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The following are gimmick rallye class structures that TRC has used in the past.

The most experienced person in the car has always determined the car's class. Also, TRC's class structure has always been considered a general guideline. Rallyists are encouraged to discuss their situation with the rallyemaster or other club personnel if they have previous or out-of-area rallye experience, or if they think they would not be competitive in the class assigned by the structure.
