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.

Long time Victorian rally driver, Ian Swan will be hanging up his long distance driving helmet after this year’s Classic Outback Trial.
Swan, a 73 year old from Frankston South in Victoria, will line up in his trusty 1975 Volvo 242 with his “new” co-driver – long-time mate Colin Gow of Wonga Park – in an attempt to beat a previous third place in the 7 day, 2,300 kilometre Special Stage Rally.
Rally car preparation specialist John Rawson is the latest entry in the 2020 Classic Outback Trial.
Proprietor of Tayell Service Centre, a small but well known rally preparation business in the Melbourne suburb of East Bentleigh, 64 year old Rawson will compete in his 1978 Datsun Stanza in an attempt to win the 2,300 kilometer special stage rally.
Brisbane’s Luke Dimech and his hulking Holden Monaro are the latest entry in the 2020 Classic Outback Trial.
Luke and his older South Australian brother, Neil, who will take on the co-driver duties, are keen to pit their skills in the recently rebuilt Monaro GTS 350 against 49 other contenders, most of whom will be driving smaller and more nimble machines.
