New awards for APRC 2008 – Update

A Competitor Can Win the 2008 APRC and Either the Asia or Pacific Cup

Further interpretation of the 2008 APRC regulations reveals that it is possible to enter the full APRC and contest either of the Asia or Pacific cups – but not both. The exact wording is found in regulation 1.4.1:

“Each competitor (entrant), driver and co-driver must register with the FIA to be eligible for any Asia Cup or Pacific Cup awards and the registration may be for either Cup but not both. Registration for either Cup together with an APRC registration is permitted”.

Further explanation can be found in regulations 1.4.3 and 1.4.4.
