The “on-road” portion of this workshop
will be conducted as a TSD rally and will follow
BC Rally Regulations which are available
from Rally Pacific Motorsports.
The rally runs on straight forward instructions,
and will be approximately 150km in length with
roads a mixture of gravel and paved. Maximum
distance between refuelling will be 150kms.
Each leg of the rally will end with a gas or
rest stop, and is divided into Transit stages
and Regularity stages.
Transit stages give a stage time, which is
adequate for completing the stage well within
posted speed limits. Your time will not be recorded
in Transit stages.
Regularity stages list specific average speeds,
which are below posted speed limits, and which
you must maintain in each part of the stage.
Timing controls will be in Regularity stages
only, and will not be placed within 200 metres
of stop signs or busy intersections. Procedure
when approaching a control is simply to drive
straight past without stopping. The control
official will record your time. For double-checking
the results, you may wish to note the time and
mileage at each control but this is not required.
Your timing in these stages determines your
score. Timing is to the second, with one point
per second early or late from absolute rally
time. The lowest score wins. The maximum penalty
at a control is 300 points (5 minutes) to a
maximum of 600 points (10 minutes) in any one
regularity section. Control officials will remain
in place at least until all remaining cars are
beyond 10 minutes late. Ties will be broken
by the most zero scores, then the most 1 second
Exceptions to scoring: a competitor coming
upon an accident is required to stop and render
aid if possible. In such cases, the competitor
should record the time and mileage in the stage,
and the times lost as a result and give a written
declaration of this to a rally official. Unless
it is determined that the incident did not occur
as declared, the declaration will be accepted
and the remainder of the leg scored as if delayed
by the time lost. Hence, lost time must not
be made up until the next end of the leg. Declarations
of time lost will also be considered for organizers'
errors, which make official time unattainable,
and other discretionary safety concerns.
