Minimum requirements

What are the basic minimum requirements for competing in stage rallies? Im assuming it probably varies. A roll cage and harnesses are quite obvious, are there any requirements for a cage such as, 6 point minimum and weld in rather than bolt in. I assume everything should be FIA approved.

if its an actuall single event you will have to go the msa and pass your msa licence test at which point you will be given an msa hand book which lists everything you need to do and there will be scruteneering on the day where your car will be checked over by rally officials and if you pass that your all set

Apparently you recieve the MSA 'blue' handbook at recieving your National B, in order to gain a national b license you need to first order a starter pack which is 50! Then pass a half days training which I assume costs another few hundred. Motorsport isnt cheap is it. Has anyone undergone the training before and gained there national b?

There are 34 pages of the 'blur' book for you and your car to comply with.

Driver:- To obtain a national 'b' license, in order to do this you need to send off for a pack and then complete a BARS test.

Car:- Cage, harnesses, internal and external electrical cut-off switches, plumbed in and hand held extinguishers, presuming you are talking a 106? you will need tank and filler neck guards, emergency triangle, SOS/OK board,

After buying all that hope you can afford to enter an event. Oh yeah once you've got the car logbooked.

When the car is completed, the car will need to be scrutinised by an MSA scrutineer. He will then send the details away to the MSA and you will receive a competition car logbook.

You'll also have to supply a 7x5 picture to be included in the logbook taken from O/S front corner.

I have done the BARS Test.

It cost 185 i think. You have to do 10 minute driving test and a theory test based on the MSA blue book. Te theory test has two parts. You need 100% on section A and 90 % on section B. There are 10 questions in each section.

I did mine at Silverstone Rally School in conjuction with a rally day. There are many places that you can do the test but the price is the same as it is set by the MSA.
