Rally and Regularity Supp Regs updated for NCR changes

Supplementary Regulations for both COT21 Rally and COT21 Regularity have been updated.

Motorsport Australia recently revised the National Competition Rules (NCR’s) reducing the number of Articles from 241 to 113 and bringing the streamlined document aligning more closely with the recently updated FIA’s International Sporting Code and this will result in greater consistency from grassroots to the international levels of the sport. The revised NCR’s will be applicable from 1 January 2021.

Classic Outback Trial Pty Ltd has therefore updated both the COT 2021 and COT Regularity 2021 regulations to bring them in line with the revised NCR’s.

No other changes have been made to either set of regulations.

COT21 Rally Supplementary Regulations v4 are available from the Rally Docs and Forms page.

COT21 Regularity Supplementary Regulations v3 are available from the Regularity Docs and Forms page.
