Welcome to the 2018 Asia Pacific Rally Championship.
APRC 2018 will feature 6 rallies on the calendar, two in the Pacific region and four in the Asia region.
In a major change of registration policy, competitors and crews will no longer be required to nominate individual rallies for each of the Championships and Cups.
Instead, crews will be required to nominate which Championships or Cups they wish to score points in. This means that irrespective of the number of rallies contested for each Championship or Cup, crews will score points for each contested rally and be included in the overall Championships points standings.
Registration and Championship nomination can be done at any time during the year, however, points will not be allocated retrospectively.
Pacific Cup will feature two rallies, New Zealand and Australia.
Asia Cup will feature 4 rallies and crews may compete in all four. Final classification will be based on best three results.
As there is no nomination of rallies, the requirement for competitors to pay entry fees to organisers should they not compete in any nominated rallies is no longer applicable.
- APRC 2018 will again include a Junior Trophy for drivers competing in 4WD cars. Qualifying rallies will be Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
- Applications will be considered for national cars to be eligible for APRC.
- The FIA APRC 2 will again be contested in 2018.
- The FIA APRC 3 will be a choice for competitors in 2WD cars.
- APRC 2 Cups will be up for competition in both the Pacific and Asia regions.
- APRC AEV Cup will again be offered.
- In 2018 a new class for SUV vehicles will be introduced.
With six rounds spread over seven months of the year, it will mean that team preparation will be to the highest standard to ensure successful competition at each event.
As any APRC event or championship information comes available I am currently sending out an email brief to all interested parties to alert them to this fact. This has proven to be very popular to update teams of developments.
