What is Stage Rallying?
Stage rallies are (WRC) World Rally Championship style, and the type most people think of when they hear the word ‘Rallying’. Stage Rallies take place on closed roads – in the UK this is most often forestry roads and other private tracks. The surface can range from loose gravel to smooth tarmac, slippery mud to sand.
A notable rally would be the Monte-Carlo Rally, now an event in the World Rally Championship. It features one of the most famous special stages in motorsport, with the cars tackling the mountain roads and sharp hairpins between La Bollene-Vesubie and Sospel, usually at night.
The events can take one day or a week to complete, with competitors being given set start times for their class and leaving the start at staggered intervals. Competitors are timed through the ‘stage’. It is possible to win by being the fastest consistently throughout the event.
Single Stage Rallies are similar events held in one place, with the competitors racing on a closed stage for the event.
