Characteristics of the events
In tarmac rallies each crew must cover the stage four times minimum.
There are two-minute minimum intervals between starts. The stages are timed to a tenth of a second. A standing start is given while the finish is a flying one. The penalty for jumping the start is 10s.
During a distant service the equipment that can be used is reduced to a minimum (jack, pressure pins, hand tools). Repairs must be carried out with the parts carried in the car.
Each manufacturer must nominate two links of three rallies and one link of two rallie in which he will use the same transmission and the same lot of spare parts (sub frames, steering racks, turbochargers). Finally, a car cannot use more than five sets of dampers and five sets of knuckle joints per rally.
