Subaru Contingency Program

Each national event organizer of the 2017 American Rally Association will make available a “Subaru Early Entry Fee” to the first 10 paid Subaru teams in the National and the first 10 paid Subaru entries in the concurrent Regional rally, should one exist.  The “Subaru Early Entry Fee” will be $500 below the event’s posted Early Entry Fee for a National entry, and $300 below normal Early Entry Fee for a Regional entry. Teams receive the credit when they pay their entry to the event organizer, except for Canadian based rounds, in which the entry credit will be paid to the entrant once the entrant starts a USA based ARA round.  This entry fee credit is  available to ANY class of Subaru but it is limited to the first 10 paid entrants in the National and the first 10 paid entrants in the Regional.


• The first 10 Subaru National entries, any class or model year, receive a $500 credit off the Event’s respective National Early Entry Fee

• The first 10 Subaru Regional entries, any class or model year, receive a $300 credit off the Event’s respective Regional Early Entry Fee at a concurrent National event.  The entry fee discount does not apply to any stand-alone Regional level rally events.

• After an Event’s respective “Early Entry Deadline” passes there are no credits provided.  Each event organizer may dictate the terms and details of the entry deadlines.

• The Event’s standard Early Entry Fee is dictated solely by the respective Event Organizer and this program will only reduce that fee by the above stated amounts for Subaru drivers. Event Organizers may list this reduced fee as “The Subaru Early Entry Fee” or other mutually agreeable name.

• The early entry fee credit is ONLY available at the rounds that comprise the 2017 American Rally Association Championship.

• Subaru drivers do NOT need to pre-register with Vermont SportsCar to receive this credit.  However, the participants’ contact information may be provided by the Event Organizers to Vermont SportsCar.

• Important note about Canadian based event(s): In order to receive an early entry credit from a Canadian based ARA event, competitors must also start at least one national USA based ARA event. For example, early entry credits earned for the Perce-Neige Rally in Canada will be paid to the eligible competitor once they start the Oregon Trail Rally or the next USA based round they enter. Both USA and Canadian based competitors are eligible for this award.  If the competitor does not start a USA based ARA national event in the 2017 the registrant forfeits any early entry credit earned at a Canadian round.



  • What if an entrant drops out of the event and requires a refund?
    • A: Event Organizer refunds the entry fee, in accordance with the event’s own refund policy and may apply the applicable Entry credit to the 11th entered Subaru who paid an Early Entry fee, in the form of a check or credit card refund. This is at the discretion of the event organizer.
  • What if an entrant receives the Early Entry Fee Credit but does not start the event in a Subaru? (a change of vehicle after initial registration)
    • A:  Event Scrutineers will be aware of which participants received the Subaru Early Entry Fee.  If a participant changes vehicles and is no longer entering the event with a Subaru he/she will be charged the difference in entry fees before being allowed to start the event.
  • What if there are less than 10 Subaru entrants who receive the Subaru Early Entry Credit in either National or Regional?
    • Unused credits will not be transferred or utilized.
