Required equipment: 1 self-supporting, reflective warning triangle (30cm per side), first aid kit (minimum contents defined by the BC rally regulations), 5BC fire extinguisher, open cars require a roll bar. Additional lights on the front should meet legal requirements as to type and mounting height; and must be wired to the high beam lights such that the additional lights turn off when switching to low beam. Fog lights may be wired independently.

Recommended equipment: map light, driving lights, warm clothing, and tow rope. Some helpful hints: Make sure not to mount anything (e.g. rally odometers) in front of an air-bag cover. Maximum distance between gas stops is 250km. Drivers are asked always to drive with their headlights on and to be particularly courteous to traffic not connected with the rally. Do to the higher altitude of some of the roads good All-Season Mud and Snow Tires are highly recommended.

The Rally: The rally will be divided into a number of legs, each leg ending with a gas stop. Each leg is divided into Transit stages and Regularity stages. Transit stages give a stage time that is adequate for completing the stage well within speed limits. Your time will not be recorded in these stages. Regularity stages list specific average speeds, which are below the posted speed limits, which you must maintain in each part of the stage. Your timing in these stages determines your score.

Timing controls will be in regularity stages 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. For double checking the results, you may wish to note the time and mileage at each control, but this is not required.

Timing & Scoring: Timing will be to 0.1 second, but scoring is one point per whole second early or late. This means that there is effectively a 0.9 second grace period either side of perfect time, to allow for inaccuracies in checkpoint position and timing accuracy.

  • Time Declarations: The principles behind time declarations are as follows:
  • Competitors should be able to stop and render first aid at an accident without penalty.
  • Competitors should be able to stop and deal with a public situation (concerned local, grader blocking road, law enforcement etc.) without penalty.
  • Competitors’ own errors should earn them penalties.
  • Competitors can not submit a Time Declaration for earliness (unless pre-approved by event organizers)
  • Competitors should not be able to engineer a lower score post-facto through a time declaration.
  • Competitors requiring outside assistance (e.g. to extract them from a snowbank) should be penalized. There are 2 categories of time declaration: For situations involving public safety (stopped for a red cross incident, stopped to determine if there is injury, stopped by a member of the public, heavy traffic making it impossible to pass, etc.) the time dec will not incur any penalty. For competitor’s fault situations (missed a turn, couldn’t make the average, flat tire, mis-calculated time, etc.) the time dec will cost you 20 points.

Teams will be given a Time Declaration sheet for each regularity. If you are delayed in a regularity, (e.g. if you have to stop for an accident, or if you are stopped by someone not connected with the rally) do not race to catch up your time. The time declaration sheet includes a field for the distance, a check box for fault/no fault, a field for recording the reason if it is a no-fault, and the delay requested, which must be in whole minutes, or whole minutes plus 30 seconds (0:30, 1:00, 1:30, 2:00 etc.), up to 9:30 late. In each case, you must fill in the time dec form at the time when the delay occurs. To ensure that competitors don’t engineer their time decs post-facto, there may be a stop control at any location along the route, where the time dec forms will be collected. Stop controls will be indicated by a red passage control board, which will be on display at the drivers’ meeting. At the end of the day, when you check in to the main time control in the restaurant, hand in any time declarations that weren’t previously collected.

The maximum penalty at a single control is 300 points (5 minutes) and the maximum penalty for a regularity stage 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 be broken by the most zero scores, then the most 1 second penalties, etc.
