Each one of the three-day events is made up of a variety of different skill sessions. Competitors can enter any, from one to four rounds, and if they choose to enter at least three rounds they can vie for the National Series title.
Motorkhanas, individual circuit sprints, hillclimbs and timed quarter-mile sprints are among the range of activities that both drivers and co-drivers undertake during the course of the three days.
The emphasis in all Dutton Rallies is as much on skill as it is on time, and scoring towards a win focuses on both. No public roads are involved, and the idea is for competitors to enjoy their cars safely and responsibly on suitable closed venues.
“Our events cater to the individual with a performance car, to use it the way it was intended to be used, with skill – and it all takes place on tarmac only - closed race tracks, airports and training facilities, not on public roads,” Moss said.
“The Dutton Rally is not expensive to compete in either, with entry fees for each round starting at $2,075 for a driver, and $2,790 for a crew entry. If entering both driver and co-driver, each member will drive each stage, and compete for driver and co-driver honours, as well as the ‘Crew Championship’.
The entry fee includes all meals, official functions, merchandise, CAMS insurance, car decals and a one-hour DVD of each car, national television coverage featuring one hour shows on Channel Nine, and an additional three hours per event on Fox Sports.
No rollcages, racesuits or harnesses are required, the only modification is that a 2kg fire extinguisher is fitted. The only safety items needed for the drivers are helmets and long sleeve shirt and pants, and leather shoes at a minimum.
