HRRT - Introduction to the 10th Rally Poland Historic

04.11.21

The final of the 2021 FIA Trophy for Historic Regularity Rallies will be hosted by the Rally Poland Historic on the 11-14 November 2021, the tenth anniversary of this highly popular event.   

The total distance of the Rally Poland Historic will be 968 km, which is divided into 4 legs centred on town of Wieliczka, near to the historic city of Krakow. The route will include 589km of regularity tests on roads open to public traffic where the competitors will aim to keep an average speed of 50kph.

What is a Regularity Rally?

The purpose of a Regularity Section on a Historic Road Rally is to test the crew's skill at maintaining a precise average speed over a defined route, usually on public roads.  

Each regularity section will have a Start Control, several Intermediate Time Controls and a Finish Point.  The aim is to take the correct amount of time between each consecutive pair of timing controls. Being early or late at one control must usually be carried over and not made up, so at each intermediate control you can forget about your timing over the previous section and start again from scratch for the new section.

The average speed the FIA Trophy for Historic Regularity Rallies is a maximum of 50kph.

Points Scoring

The ideal scoring time is the sole responsibility of the crews who can view the official watch placed on the control table, but the officials cannot give them any information about this ideal scoring time.

Any difference between the actual time and the ideal scoring time will be penalized with:

  • For any delay: 100 points per minute or fraction of a minute capped at 1,500 points
  • For any advance: 600 points per minute or fraction of a minute capped at 9,000 points.
  • The absence of a visa from an hourly check or the arrival at the check after the maximum allowed delay of 30 minutes will result in a penalty of 900 points.
