Televised Show Format: All SCCA ProRally shows are shown in 30 minute, event summary format, with plenty of action from both inside the cars and roadside. Attention given to Manufacturer Championship entries from Hyundai, Subaru, Toyota and Mitsubishi. Drivers in contention for overall and class championship's are interviewed regularly, at both services and at the finish. All events in the 2000 schedule are covered.
About the SCCA ProRally Championship: Events in the SCCA ProRally Championship consist of flat-out competition, in any weather, on challenging forest, mountain or desert roads. SCCA Performance Rally events follow a basic rally format similar to that used around the globe. However, USA events do not allow for on course practice (recces). Competitors generally see the course for the first time as they race it.
The 2000 season marks the 28th consecutive running of the series, and the first time since 1989 that globally homologated FIA rally cars have been recognized in the US championship, helping to set the stage for the return of FIA rally competition to this country. Performance Rally is considered to be the fastest growing motorsport in the world, with fan followings and similar championships presented in virtually every country in the world.
SCCA ProRally racing takes place only on "special stages," using demanding back roads closed by local authorities for the event. "Transits" connect the "special stage" sections together and are driven at normal highway speeds, with teams fully subject to all traffic laws.
SCCA Performance Rally vehicles are production-based cars and trucks from manufacturers around the world. They compete both for the overall victory and wins within a class structure that groups together vehicles with similar performance.
Each vehicle carries a driver and a co-driver/navigator. Using a detailed route book and a sophisticated rally computer, the co-driver keeps the team on-course and advises the driver of any hazards ahead. This role is as critical as the driver's skill, since the team is traveling at full racing speeds over roads they have never before seen, in any type of weather.
