Trophy for Historic Regularity Rallies
FIA Trophy for Historic Regularity Rallies
Average speeds, time cards and regularity test sheets: these are the staples that make up regularity rallies
For the passionate advocates who take part in this alternative form of rallying, the timing imposed for a given sector becomes an obsession, and intriguingly the demands for precision and accuracy fall not as much on the driver but on the co-driver. Flat-out speed is replaced by attention to detail and control, and with the road-book and calculations, the co-driver operates at the very epicentre of the challenge. Dictating the rhythm to the driver, the sole aim is to match as closely as possible the average speed imposed over the stages.
The 2016 edition of the FIA Trophy for Historic Regularity Rallies is made up of eight events, four of which run alongside the FIA European Historic Sporting Rally Championship. The Trophy is open to pre-1982 cars divided into various categories according to their age, and cars from 1982 to 1990 are eligible to participate although they cannot score points for the FIA Trophy
