Limited Rally trials




For instructions and illustrations of how to make a PVC ladder, click here.

The Limited Rally Trial provides an opportunity for newer rally trialists, especially those in more isolated areas, to gain certificates towards their NZARO qualifications whilst reducing the amount of travel required. LRTs are primarily organised for the benefit of members of the organising club or training group, but depending on the number of participating members, the organising group may accept prior registrations from other NZARO members.
