Default Rally Star Cup

What is the Rally Star Cup?

The rally Star Cup, or RSC for short, is a special Cup for Novice drivers that runs as part of the MAI Indian National Rally Championship. This 'one make series' allows drivers to compete with each other in cars that have been equally tuned and equipped with controlled components, be it tyres or suspension.

The Cup cars are all rally prepared Maruti Esteems, carburetted, group N (unmodified) and comply with the Technical Specifications laid out especially for the Rally Star Cup. These cars are also available on rent from some of the best tuners in this country making the competition very exciting.




How do you rent a Rally Star Cup car
The rental charge for a car per rally is approximately Rs.50,000/-, and includes all of the following:
- Rally Prepared Maruti Esteem
- Rally Cover insurance for the car
- Transport of the car to and from the venue
- Fuel for the event
- Complete service backup during the event
- 5 Rally Tyres
- 1 set of OE suspension

If a driver wants to run on Koni dampers (as per RSC Technical regulations), it will be his responsibility to source and purchase this suspension. In this case, the cost for the rental will be reduced to Rs.45,000/-.

The cars are prepared by 2 of the countries best tuners - Chettinad Sporting and J. Anand. Please note that the number of cars available for rent are limited, hence book early to avoid disappointment. They may be contacted on:

J. Anand: Email: jayem@jayemauto.com
Chettinad Sporting :Email: thiagu@hotmail.com


Benefits of the Rally Star Cup and Renting a Car.

As a Rally Star Cup participant, you compete with other novice drivers and drivers of similar skill level as yourself and not the professional drivers competing in the 1600cc and 1400cc class with more expensive and faster machinery, and who have been rallying for years. Also, for 2005, you have the added benefit of scoring points for the overall INRC as well.

Renting a car is the ideal way for a newcomer to enter the sport, as it entails minimum investment on the part of the driver, as everything from the preparation of the car, transport or the car, service backup and tyres is all taken care off. All you have to do is concentrate on your driving! The benefits of renting a RC car have been covered above already.

Drivers entering their own car in the RSC will be provided with a set of MRF Rally Tyres free of cost on the following conditions:

- Application for tyres is received by the MAI a minimum of 2 weeks before an event.
- Tyres are returned to MRF immediately after the completion of the event.
- Application is sent along with a Cheque of Rs.30,000/- will be held by the IARC WITHOUT being deposited. If the tyres are not returned to MRF, the cheque will be deposited and the money forfeited. If the tyres are returned in time, the cheque will be returned to the driver without being deposited.
- If an application is received late, tyres may not be available.
- If an application is received without the cheque, it is considered incomplete and tyres will not be allotted.


Point system

The Rally Star Cup runs as part of the MAI Indian National Rally Championship 2005. Separate points for the Cup are awarded for each round of the INRC. Points are awarded to the top 8 finishers in the following manner:

First Place - 10 points
Second Place - 8 points
Third Place - 6 points
Fourth Place - 5 points
Fifth Place - 4 points
Sixth Place - 3 point
Seventh Place - 2 points
Eight Place - 1 point.

In addition, the MAI INRC follows the SUPERally Format. This means, any competing vehicle that fails to finish the first Leg will be permitted to restart the succeeding Legs and still score points.

So, if you are fastest in your group / class for a Leg you will collect an additional 3 points, 2 points for second and 1 for third fastest for that Leg.

If you are just dying to get behind the wheel of a rally car this is the easiest and least expensive way to do it.

Requirements for the Rally Star Cup

You will require the following in order to compete in the RSC:
- MAI Grade C Rally competition licence for the driver and Co-driver.
- MAI Entrants licence.
- Personal Rally Accident Insurance policy as per the regulations.
- Helmet as per MAI regulations.
If you are a privateer entering in the RSC, you will be required to meet the conditions outlines earlier in order to receive the free tyres.
