 ORGANIZATION AND ADMINISTRATION

The CRS is governed by a Board of Governors (BOG) which consists of one organizer from each CRS event. Membership on the BOG will be for the remainder of the year the event occurs in, plus the following year. In addition to the organizers there will be seven other members, the Director, Manager, Secretary, Membership Chairman & Treasurer, Competitor Liaison, Press Liaison, and the Stock Class Chairman. The responsibilities of the officers are detailed as follows:

DIRECTOR:

The Director will be elected by a vote of the CRS membership and shall be in charge of the general operations of the CRS. The Director will schedule and chair BOG meetings, and act as the official contact person for the CRS. The Director will be responsible for seeing that a monthly article for DUSTY TIMES is submitted. The Director will be responsible for the acquisition of all the year-end awards (within the budget). The Director will be responsible for the year-end awards banquet, and any other social events as desired. The Director has the power to expend funds as required to accomplish these tasks and other CRS related business as deemed appropriate. The Director may delegate any of these responsibilities to other individuals if desired.

MANAGER:

The Manager will be responsible for the CRS rally equipment (clocks, bibs, sign boards, and PA system). The manager will order new sign boards and other equipment as necessary to support the various CRS events. The manager will furnish the desired equipment to the organizers prior to the event and collect it from the organizer after the event.

SECRETARY:

The Secretary will be responsible for recording the minutes of the BOG meetings as well as updating the rule book as required. The Secretary will also be responsible for tabulating the CRS results and standings. The Secretary will also be responsible for mailing post event results to all CRS competitors. The Secretary will be responsible for maintaining the mailing list, and seeding list. The Secretary will make mailing list labels, seeding lists and car number lists available to organizers.

MEMBERSHIP CHAIRMAN & TREASURER (MC/T):

The MC/T will be responsible for signing up CRS members and distributing information about the CRS to interested parties. Since CRS membership is required of competitors at all events the MC/T will have someone available at the registration of each event to sign up new members. The MC/T's name, address and phone will be advertised as a contact point for new rallyists. The MC/T will be responsible for dispensing funds to pay for subscriptions, decals, trophies, etc.

COMPETITOR LIAISON:

The Competitor Liaison will act as a point of contact for competitors who would like to make an input to the BOG. He will keep written records of the competitor comments and inputs from competitors. The Competitor Liaison will attend BOG meetings. To be eligible for this position the person must have been a competitor on at least one CRS event a year for the three previous years, and plan on continued CRS involvement. The Competitor Liaison will be elected by a vote of the CRS membership.

PRESS LIAISON:

The Press Liaison will actively seek to promote the CRS and will be the single point of contact for the press. The Press Liaison will distribute the writing assignments for articles about events among those interested. These articles will be targeted for publication in DUSTY TIMES, SPORTS CAR, and other periodicals that cover CRS events. Nominations for Press Liaison will be solicited from the CRS membership and the BOG will select from those nominated.

STOCK CLASS CHAIRMAN:

The SCC (Stock Class Chairman) will be responsible for the administration of the CRS Stock Classes. The SCC will be the contact person for questions and rules. The SCC will be responsible for the policing of the classes at events, and will furnish the organizers with a list of approved Stock and Performance Stock Class competitors prior to the drivers' meeting. The SCC will call meetings of Stock Classes competitors to consider amendments to the rules as necessary. The SCC shall be selected by a vote of the active Stock Class competitors. It is recommended, but not required, that the SCC be someone not competing in Stock Class or Performance Stock Class.

BOG Operation:

The BOG shall make decisions on Calendar approval, amendments to these rules, amounts of fees, and any other items deemed appropriate by the Director. The BOG shall also be responsible for appointing people to fill the jobs of Manager, Secretary, and Membership Chairman & Treasurer. The BOG will also serve as an informal forum for the organizers to discuss items related to the organization of rallies. For voting purposes each event shall have the same number of votes as the event's weighting factor (1, 2 or 3), with a limit of 3 BOG votes per competitive weekend. Any officers that are not organizers (as indicated by the SCCA sanction application) will have one BOG vote. Each event will have a single point of contact for the purposes of BOG phone or email polls. The single point of contact for each event will designate who from his event shall be on the BOG mailing list and who will have voting privileges at meetings.

Election Time Line:

Request Nominations – 3rd event results mailing from the end of the year

Send Ballots – 2nd event results mailing from the end of the year

Send Election Results – Last event results mailing for the year

STRUCTURE OF EVENTS

There will be certain minimum requirements which must be met if an event is to be considered for inclusion into the CRS. These requirements have been established to develop credibility in the eyes of the competitors, and thereby promote rallying in general (and the CRS specifically). The CRS also maintains a stock of equipment and materials for the use of event organizers.

CLASSES:

There will be 4 CRS classses at all events (4WD Open, 2WD Open, Performance Stock and Stock). The organizer is required to recognize all four classes. The SCC is responsible for the determination of vehicle eligibility for the Stock Classes. The SCC will furnish a list of qualified Stock/Performance Stock Class vehicles to the organizer prior to the start.

MEMBERSHIP:

It is required that all competitors who live in California, Arizona, and Nevada be members of CRS. Competitors who live outside CA, AZ, and NV are not required to be CRS members (unless they want to accrue championship points). It is the Membership Chairman's responsibility to check this at registration. It is the MC/T's responsibility to have someone available to sign up new members and answer questions.

RESULTS:

The CRS will be responsible for the mailing of results to the competitors (free of charge). The results of the event (including the leg scores) will be given to the Secretary. The Secretary will prepare them in standard CRS form and mail them to all CRS members.

RALLYSPRINTS (Driver-Only Events):

Rallysprints are generally held on short courses where co-drivers are not required. To avoid confusion relating to co-driver requirements, any event advertised as a rallysprint or rallycross which will require co-drivers must so state in the event announcement. If there is no such statement ("CO-DRIVERS REQUIRED") co-drivers' points will not be awarded, regardless of what happens at the event.

ORGANIZER SUPPORT:

The CRS will loan any CRS organizer the funds required to pay the SCCA sanction and insurance fees. This loan is to be repaid to the treasurer prior to the event. The CRS will supply car numbers free of charge for all drivers at their first CRS event of the year. For competitors who need replacement numbers the CRS will have a supply available for sale at all events.

The CRS maintains the following equipment and materials for use by event organizers free of charge: mailing list (address labels), clocks (hundredths reading & freezable), wrist watches, SCCA sign boards, worker vests, and a portable public address system. In addition the CRS will mail event results to all competitors (and other CRS members) free of charge to the organizer.

 CRS COMPETITOR MEMBERSHIP

 

All competitors who live in California, Arizona or Nevada are required to be CRS members. CRS membership costs $40 a calendar year (which includes a year's subscription to DUSTY TIMES) or $30 a calendar year without DUSTY TIMES. CRS membership also includes 2 CRS decals, and results mailings from the various events. The rest of the membership fee goes to year end awards, and maintaining the supply of equipment used to support those who organize events (see page 6). There will be a 3 month overlap allowed for people joining between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31. For example, joining CRS on Oct. 1, 1999 will buy a membership until Dec. 31, 1999 (1 year & 3 months); while joining on Sept. 30, 1999 will buy a membership until Dec. 31, 1999 (3 months).

Competitors who live outside California, Arizona, and Nevada are not required to be CRS members unless they want to compete for year end awards. Competitors will begin accruing CRS championship points only after paying their annual membership fee. Out of area competitors running with a CRS member will get points but will not be eligible for year end trophies.

CRS ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP

The associate membership has been created for workers and other interested people who want to keep up on rally activities but will not be competing. Associate members will receive all of the event results mailings but they do not receive championship points. The fee for joining CRS as an associate member is $20 per calendar year with DUSTY TIMES or $10 a calendar year without DUSTY TIMES. The 3 month overlap as described above applies for associate members as well. If an associate member should decide at a later date to become a competitor he/she may change status by merely paying the $20 difference.

HOW TO JOIN

To join as either a full or associate member, contact the Membership Chairman by mail or phone and request an application:

1999 CRS Rally Championship Calendar
Link not available in archive edition

CHAMPIONSHIPS

In addition to the annual CRS Rally Championship, any year that there are 4 or more "drivers only" events on the calendar at the beginning of the year, there will be a CRS Rally Sprint Championship for that year. For purposes of this championship "drivers only" events will be those events which do not have route instructions and do not require a co-driver. Rally Crosses, Rally Sprints, and SuperStage events are examples of these types of events. The Rally Sprint Championship will use the same system for awarding points, and dropping events as the Rally Championship.

 

SEEDING

SEED 1: Drivers with an overall win on a rally format (route book required) event or Nationally seeded in FIA, 1 or 2

SEED 2: Drivers with a top 3 Divisional finish or National seeds 3 or 4

SEED 3: Drivers with a top10 finish on a Divisional or National seed 5

SEED 4: Drivers who have finished a Divisional rally

SEED 5: Drivers who have started but not yet finished a Divisional rally

SEED 6: Drivers who have never driven in a PRO rally

CLASSES:

Each competitor will have the possibility of accumulating points in eight categories (driver or co-driver in 4WD Open, 2WD Open, Performance Stock and Stock Classes). Driver's points cannot be added to co-driver's points or vice versa. In other words all classes are tabulated independently. Organizer's points will be counted in only one class which the organizer chooses at the time of his/her event.

EVENT POINTS:

CRS points will be awarded to all competitors who start the first stage of the rally. For championship purposes points will be awarded based on the competitor's finishing position in his/her class (4WD Open, 2WD Open Performance Stock or Stock). Points based on overall finishing will be tabulated for seeding purposes, and car numbers. In addition the organizers of the event will have 400 points to distribute amongst themselves, with no organizer getting more than 100 points (prior to weighting). No competitor can receive more than a total of 500 organizer's points in a given year.

1st 100
2nd 80
3rd 60
4th 50
5th 40
6th 35
7th 30
8th 25
9th and on 20
start first stage 10

EVENT WEIGHTING:

To properly reward the competitors who do well on the longer, more demanding events these events will receive heavier weighting. For example, 1st in class in a double points event awards 200 points, in a triple points event 300 points. In general the CRS weighting will follow the SCCA Divisional coefficient level. In some cases the event may receive a higher weighting than the SCCA coefficient, but in no cases will it be less. Coefficient 1 events where the winning car's stage time is at least 40 minutes but less than 80 minutes will be scored as double points events. Coefficient 1 or 2 events which have 80 minutes or more of stage time for the winning car will be scored as triple points events.

TOTALING POINTS:

Since it is desirable to allow competitors to drop their worst events, the FIA system for dropping events has been adopted for use by the CRS. The following is a summary of the number of events which will be counted.

total number of count events in series     best

5 4

6,7 5

8 6

9,10 7

11 8

TIE BREAKING:

In the event of a tie for a year-end ranking the tie will be broken by adding all the points accumulated in triple points events which both competitors started in the class in question. All events started will be counted (no events will be dropped). If this does not resolve the tie the same method will be applied to the double points events. If a tie still exists the same method will be applied to the single points events. If the above method fails, the tie will remain.

YEAR-END AWARDS

CLASS AWARDS:

There will be year-end awards (eg., trophies) for the top competitors in each of the six classes. Trophies will be given 5 deep in classes with 15 or more competitors and 4 deep for classes with fewer than 15 competitors.

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR:

To be a candidate a driver must begin the year as a seed 5 or 6 driver and finish the year no higher then seed 3. The winner will be the driver who finished in the highest percentile in class. The co-driver award will go to the co-driver who accrued the most points with the driver who won Rookie of the Year.

THE KENNETH ZIMMERMAN MEMORIAL AWARD:

The Zimmerman Award was created to recognize those individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the sport of rallying in general and the CRS specifically. The recipient is determined by the director of the CRS. The award honors the sportsmanship and support of Dr. Kenneth Zimmerman, and is presented by his daughter Karin Zimmerman-DiMarco and son-in-law Chad DiMarco.

The GALAL SOUKI MEMORIAL AWARD:

The Galal Souki award was created to recognize Stock Class competitors who typify the spirit of helpfulness and competitiveness that has come to be associated with Stock Class.

OUTSTANDING, TENACIOUS, PERSEVERING WORKER:

It is the unselfish contributions of workers at all events, whether communications, blockage or control workers, which enable our series to succeed. The recipients of this award are selected by the CRS Board of Governors in recognition of their years of service to the sport of rallying.

BILL MOORE MEMORIAL AWARD:

The Bill Moore Award was created to honor a co-driver who, like Bill, has contributed to the sport of rallying in many areas, including as a worker, organizer, or BOG member.

CAR NUMBERS

Car numbers will be assigned for the whole competition year in concert with the SCCA Club Rally car numbering convention. Car number will be based on total overall finishing position points accrued during the previous competition year. No events will be dropped, and organizer points will be accumulated as well. The competitor with the most overall points will be car number 301, with all other car numbers following in sequence. Drivers who did not compete in the previous year will be assigned car numbers on a first-come-first-served basis for the rest of the year. Car number sets will be for sale at registration at all events for a nominal fee. Competitors will be allowed to paint their numbers on their car as long as the painted numbers are a reasonable facsimile of the standard number. Current Car Number LIst

APPENDIX A

PERFORMANCE STOCK CLASS RULES

1 GENERAL INFORMATION

1.1 The CRS Stock Classes were created to provide a lower cost form of competition by using basically stock engines and low cost cars. The following rules have been made to limit the effectiveness of expensive horsepower/drivetrain modifications and should be maintained as such to keep the class a "drivers class". By keeping certain items "stock" and other modifications limited, dominance of the class by one particular type of car will not occur. This concept is referred to as the "Spirit of the Class", and may be applied by the Stock Class Committee in cases where the following rules may not apply.

1.2 In general, THE CARS ARE TO BE STOCK IN ALL ASPECTS EXCEPT THOSE ITEMS SPECIFICALLY MENTIONED IN THESE RULES!

1.2.1 Optional equipment will be allowed only when the specific option was available on the body style as delivered in the U.S. from the factory, except as modified in section 5.2 of these rules.

1.2.2 Dealer-installed options are not allowable. (Many examples of these types of modifications exist and do not fall within the "Spirit of the Class").

1.3 These rules are modified every other year (1997, 1999, etc) by ballot after a Stock Class meeting, to be in effect for the following year. As a result the rules will be the same for 1998 & 1999. Current competitors in the class will be eligible to vote.

2 VEHICLE ELIGIBILITY

2.1 All cars competing in the Performance Stock Class will be limited to a market value (for the basic car) of not more than $4,000. This rule will be waived for 4 cylinder, 2 wheel drive, non-turbo pickup trucks, and National Production Class legal vehicles, however all other Performance Stock Class Rules must be followed.

2.2 Vehicles equipped with turbochargers, superchargers or four wheel drive will not be allowed in Stock or Performance Stock Class.

2.3 If the value of the car is in question, it will be checked via the current wholesale Blue Book with no additions or deductions for optional equipment or mileage (or general market value). The first year that the engine-body-induction system combination was offered for sale by the manufacturer will be used to determine the value of the vehicle.

3 UPDATING AND BACKDATING

3.1 Any part may be updated or backdated freely within a given body style, provided that the part was available from the factory on a production car sold in the U.S.

3.1.1 Example: Parts from a '68-'73 Datsun 510 may not be used on a '78-'81 510. However, parts from a '68 510 may be used on a '72 510.

3 UPDATING AND BACKDATING (con't)

3.2 Engine updating and backdating is allowed with the following provisions and must comply with Section 4. In addition updating and backdating may cause the basic value of the car to change (see section 2.3).

3.2.1 The combination of body, engine, induction system and exhaust manifold must have been available in the U.S. from the factory.

4 ENGINE

4.1 Internal parts are free with the following exceptions:

4.1.1 Stock block must be retained in the stock location.

4.1.2 Dome-topped pistons are not allowed unless they were stock on the specific body.

4.2 The stock induction systems meaning the intake manifold, carburetor, or fuel injection systems and exhaust manifold must be retained. The stock carburetor may be rejetted. The choke mechanism may be removed or fixed open.

4.3 The rest of the exhaust system is free, but must include a suitable muffler.

4.4 The air filter and housing is free.

4.5 The ignition system must be of stock design.

4.6 Engine oil coolers, transmission coolers, and radiators may be added or upgraded.

5 DRIVETRAIN

5.1 The transmission shall be stock for the body style. Ratios available in any year of the same body style may be used.

5.2 Any differential ratio may be used. The differential itself may be open, welded, locked, or limited slip.

5.3 Stock transmission ratios available in any year of the same body style may be used.

5.4 The rear axle assembly, meaning the housing, differential and axles is free providing: brakes of the same type and size are retained. Example: a ‘68-’73 Datsun 510 equipted with a R160 rear differential may use the larger R180 differential as long as it mounts in the stock location and no suspension components are altered.

 6 SUSPENSION

6.1 Strengthening of stock parts and mounting points is allowed, however modification of the original part in the process is not allowed. As an example, a suspension arm may have additional material welded onto it, but it may not be lengthened or shortened in the process.

6.2 Limit straps may be added.

6.3 Springs and shock absorbers are free in the stock location.

6.4 Adjustable competition struts in the stock mounting location may be used. The spring perch height and diameter may differ from the stock dimensions.

6.5 Sway bar size is free in the stock location.

6.6 Strut mounting holes may be slotted and/or offset bushings may be used to modify camber. Control arms may NOT be modified (except reinforcing).

6.7 Brake pad and shoe materials are free, using the stock caliper or drum assembly as equipped by the manufacturer. Modification or removal of brake backing plates is allowed.

6.8 Flexible brake lines are free.

8.4 The dashboard may be modified to accommodate safety and rally equipment only.

9 ELIGIBILITY

9.1 At the start of each CRS rally, the Stock Class Inspector will compile a list of potential competitors from the event entry forms. It is the competitor's responsibility to have the designated Stock Class Tech Inspector certify that the car meets the above rules.

9.2 The Stock Class Chairman is responsible for coordinating the Stock Classes tech inspection.

9.2.1 The Stock Class Chairman and each event's Stock Class Inspector shall maintain the Stock Class Log Book.

9.2.2 The Stock Class Log Book shall have provisions for recording pertinent vehicle data (i.e. engine size and type, vehicle model, VIN, license number, etc...) and for logging questionable parts.

9.3 The burden of proof of eligibility is on the competitor.

9.4 Competitors found to be in violation of the above rules will be placed in 2WD Open Class for CRS points purposes.

9.5 If a competitor wishes to file a claim concerning the eligibility of a Stock or Performance Stock Class car, he should contact the Stock Class Chairman (SCC). The SCC will form a claims committee including himself and 2 other people who are not competing in the class at that event.
