Rally NSW's newest series, the Techworkz Development Rally Series (DRS), will be launched on Saturday, April 5 with the V-Sport Stages at Termeil on the NSW South Coast.
The V-Sport Stages features close to 100km of competitive stages with a one day format on some of the finest rally stages in the Batemans Bay region.
Organised by the North Shore Sporting Car Club, the V-Sport Stages utilises four unique stages, with three run twice to deliver seven special stages.
The V-Sport Stages will be run through the afternoon and into the evening with the first car due to start from the Shallow Crossing Caravan Park at 3:00 pm with the finish scheduled for around 7:30 pm.
Two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive rally cars are eligible to compete in the event with two wheel drive and normally aspirated four wheel drive cars eligible to score DRS points.
As well as the opening round of the new Techworkz DRS, the V-Sport Stages is also the first round of the Rally NSW Hyundai Excel Rally one-make series.
According to event clerk of course Col Fletcher, the V-Sport Stages is a great way to start the 2014 Techworkz DRS and the Hyundai Excel Rally Series.
"We're really excited to see the DRS come to fruition," said Col Fletcher.
"The V-Sport Stages is a real driver's event and the twilight format will be a marvelous kick start for the Techworkz DRS Series.
"The new DRS series is a fantastic stepping stone into the NSW Rally Championship and provides a great avenue for drivers and co-drivers to sharpen their skills in a cost effective and highly competitive environment."
The Techworkz Development Rally Series is the reincarnation of the old Clubman Series - which has beenrestructured in a move to simplify the category and make it more appealing to up and coming rally drivers and those entering rallying.
Increased interest in the series has seen more than 30 teams register for the Techworkz DRS with still just under a month until the start of the V-Sport Stages - which represents a 300 percent increase on registrations for last year's Clubman Series.
