National Touring Code


2018 notice of update

The National Touring Code 2018 has been adopted by CAMS.

The NSW Touring Code (Provisional) has been cancelled.

Amending Rules for use within NSW have been adopted as NSW Standing Touring Bulletins (NSW STB) 2 & 3.

The only change has been that Touring Assemblies have been replaced, for our purposes, with Navigation Assemblies and that Divisions (lunch and end of day) can now be timed to enable a practical completion of lunch and the event.

“NTC incorporating NSW STBs 2018” is an unofficial document for use by competitors and officials which merges the National Touring Code with the rules from STB 2 & 3.

This document is available a .pdf file on the Rally NSW website:

The NSW Standing Touring Bulletin 2 (STB 2) reflects the amended rules that are very much NSW centric, have been used repeatedly and were included in the NSW Provisional document. They have now been re-written to refer to the re-numbered articles in the NTC.

There were a few changes that were made by CAMS in the creation of the National Touring Code that were not considered appropriate by the Touring Sub-Committee of the NSW Rally Panel and amendments to revert those to as close as practical to NSW former best practice have been made as NSW Standing Touring Bulletin 3.

Mike Batten will be discussing the issues in STB 3 with CAMS during the year to try and have as many as possible changed in the National Touring Code for 2019.

It is hoped that STB 3 will eventually become redundant over time as the NTC is amended to reflect the changes of STB 3.

Both bulletins are available as .pdf files on the Rally NSW website:
