Great stuff Sanket! Have you spoken with the organisers? I believe they are subsidising the transport for competitors.

hi tom ...ill be driving a group n gypsy this is my first year in rallying...
for me shipping of the car from my place to the venue is the most expensive job....
then thers is cost of the service team aproxx. 15k per event + transport ,stay, food, etc. etc. racing the car in the event is not an costly affair provided you dont meet with an accident

Tom, the Gypsy's have their own "Gypsy Class" which is open only for gypsy's. They are also classified in the general classification.

The classes for the INRC are:
Overall (1401-1600cc and below)
1101-1400cc
801-1100cc
Upto 800cc
Gypsy Class: Only gypsy's
Rally Star Cup: Only Carb. Esteems

Min. 3 participants needed to form a class.
