Our Grass Roots Rally Series Now the Hyundai/Kia Rally Series

As the Hyundai Excel X3 model is becoming more scarce and more expensive to buy, we have expanded eligibility to include a far wider range of Hyundai and Kia FWD models up to 1600cc. Still heavily restricted in what modifications can be carried out, it should create a more exciting Series where the cars are expected to retain a high degree of performance parity. Additionally, if you want to start modifying your Hyundai/Kia Series car beyond what is allowed, then we have added the Pocket Rocket Class to the Clubman Rally Series and then you are able to do modifications up to what is allowed in the Production Rally Car Regulations. If your driver seeding no longer makes you eligible for Clubman, there is also a Pocket Rocket Class in the NSW Rally Championship. Therefore, you can start rallying economically in a Hyundai/Kia Series car and progress all the way to the NSW Rally Championship, all in the same car. Further, there are no seeding restrictions in the Hyundai/Kia Rally Series so if you are a past competitor, no longer have the sort of budget required to run a Mitsubishi Evo, Subaru WRX, etc but really want to get out there again, this is also for you.
