Between the organizer and the sanctioning body, who does what?
The division of labor varies a little bit from event to event. But as an overview, here is what a setup with NASA Rally Sport might look like. Keep in mind that this is a gross simplification: the list of items a rally needs to do can be hundreds of items long, and the list for a sanctioning body is around fifty items per rally, in addition to the long term infrastructure development that never stops.
