The COT 2018 course will be conducted in loops from and back to Alice Springs. Over the seven days of competition, some 2,500 kilometres will be covered.

The event will commence each day with the first car leaving Alice Springs early morning (around 0800 hours), with following crews at two minute intervals. Crews will contest four or five special stages on private property, using transport sections on public roads (on which all traffic regulations must be observed) to link the special stages. The first car will arrive back at Alice Springs at approximately 1430-1500 hours.

During the day crews will meet their service crews at nominated locations to provide service and any assistance needed (eg, replacement of tyres, fuel and repairs).
