5. Event Requirements and Support

Rally Event Eligibility

There will be certain minimum requirements which must be met if an event is to be considered for inclusion into the CRS Rally Championship. These requirements have been established to develop credibility in the eyes of the competitors, and thereby promote rallying in general (and the CRS specifically). A first time Rally will only be allowed to count as either one single points event or one double points event in the CRS Rally Championship for that weekend. To be considered for inclusion in the championship as a triple points event or multiple events the rally must first have been executed successfully.

There will not be any additions to the CRS Rally calendar after Jan 1. Any changes to the schedule published in this book must be approved by the CRS BOG.

Trophies and Awards

As a minimum, CRS Rally events will award trophies/awards to the top 1/3 of the starters (limited to top 5) in each CRS class (for finishers only). Trophies will be for both drivers and co-drivers. For multiple event weekends the events may be combined into a single trophy for the weekend.

Organizer Support

The CRS will loan any CRS organizer the funds required to pay the sanction and insurance fees. This loan is to be repaid to the treasurer prior to the event. The CRS maintains the following equipment and materials for use by event organizers free of charge: clocks (freezable Timewise clocks plus large start display clocks), rallycross timing system, green flags, family radios, sign boards, worker vests, clipboards, an EZ-Up, and a portable public address system. Rally organizers will be allowed one pre-event mass emailing to current CRS members. The email can be sent by the Secretary. The CRS will rent equipment to non-CRS organizers for 10% of the replacement cost of the particular item. Equipment that uses batteries will be supplied for rental with new batteries installed.
