I believe that is what is meant by the rule. However, one could hold a ProRally Codriver license and a ClubRally license (to allow one to drive in ClubRallies) or vice-versa. The interesting thing is that someone with a ProRally Driver license is not allowed to codrive without buying an extra license - this is the silliest bit of this rule... It does make some form of sense to limit codrivers from driving - some just shouldn't (like me ;-)).

I can say for certain that there are drivers that I have codriven for who should never get in the codrivers' seat ;-). However, if the licensing is based on experience, most ProRally drivers have sufficient experience that there shouldn't be a separate licensing requirement for them to codrive.

Hmm... Re-reading the rule (part 5) again, it would seem that a ProRally Codriver license would allow one to drive in ClubRallies. I wonder if that is what was intended...

Did the third item actually say 'AND'?

As I said, I think this section means 'both a ProRally Driver and ProRally Codriver license', and that is what the pricing implies.

See my question back in Post#7, where I asked whether this was what was really intended by the rule. I assume that you are correct, but rules have been known to have been creatively interpreted...
