Regulations for Rally Cars
A little piece of Italy in England!
Our rally track, known as Castellano was designed and built in Italy and used for four major events - a trio of Mini Mille Miglia and a Mini Monte Carlo. It is based on the Italian countryside in the area around Umbria. It was recently shipped over to our club here in England to provide a different perspective to slot racing.
There is a massive range of rally cars to choose from and anything goes, from the raw power of the Lancia Stratos to the more sedate drive of the Standard Ten.
Classic rally cars are run as regularity trials, where the driver has to hit a generous target time and going over or under this time incurs the same penalty.
Modern rally cars are run to fastest time.
