The series features six (6) different classes that divide competitors according to their cars' engine displacements, including a separate class for high-riding vehicles such as crossovers, SUVs, and pick-up trucks.

For safety purposes, the organizers require all competing cars to be fitted with safety equipment such as a roll cage, and a fire extinguisher among others, as well as the necessary lighting systems.

Unlike traditional rallies that cover long distances, the three-round series is made up of one to four stages that varies from 2 to 6 kilometers in length, with a total stage distance ranging from 30 to 35 kilometers.

The final round of the 2022 Rallysprint Series will culminate in September where class overall awards will be given to the winning teams in the series.

May the best driver and co-driver win.
