Timing and Scoring:
The rallies are divided into transit and regularity sections. Transit sections give a section time that is adequate for completing the section well within speed limits. Your time will not be recorded in these sections. Regularity sections list specific average speeds, which are at least 10% below the posted speed limits, which you must maintain in each part of the section. Your timing in these sections determines your score.
Timing controls will be in regularity sections only, at various unannounced locations, and will not be placed near stop signs or busy intersections. Cars may not slow down excessively within sight of a timing control. At the control official’s discretion the time may be recorded early when that happens.
Procedure when approaching a control is simply to drive straight past without stopping. The control official will record your time.
Timing will be to the second, with a one second grace period either side of perfect time, to allow for inaccuracies in checkpoint position and timing accuracy.
The maximum penalty at a single control is 300 points (5 minutes) and the maximum penalty for a regularity is 600 points (10 minutes). Control officials will remain in place at least until all remaining cars are beyond 10 minutes later than absolute rally time. Ties will not be broken.
Exception to scoring:
A competitor coming to an accident is required to stop and render assistance if needed. Time allowance forms will be provided so competitors can carry on without penalty. At-fault time allowance will carry a 20 second penalty. No-fault time allowances will be penalty free. This will be covered in detail at the drivers meeting. Time allowances are to the end of the regularity with the competitors expected to catch up time in the next transit. Max time allowance is ten minutes as controls close ten minutes after the last car is due.
