Should the documents NOT be presented and/or should the vehicle fail the scrutineering, the Team will be allowed to follow the Rally BUT NOT TO PARTICIPATE and the Team Number will NOT be affixed to the car.
2:- The Rally will start each day at the time indicated on the Notice Board with the flag off of the FIRST TEAM followed by all other cars – in strict numerical order at 30 seconds of intervals. It is the drivers responsibility to be ready in line for the flag off of your car at the exact time. Should a Team NOT be ready at their flag off time they will be allowed to depart AFTER the last competing Team with the appropriate PENALTY POINTS as detailed at point 7 .
NOTE 1 – We suggest you synchronise your watch and calculate your Team flag off time in advance, by taking into account Teams NOT participating & preceding your No.( Assuming Team 01 flag off is 08.30 Team N0 05 should leave at 8.32 however if Team 02 and 04 are not competing the flag off time of Team 05 IS 08.31)
3:- The Rally requires you to drive along the route indicated in the Road Book and to pass through all Time Control
( TC ) at a time precise to the tenth of a second which you can calculate by adding the time indicated in the section time of your official driving schedule to your Team flag off time. APPLICABLE PENALTIES FOR EARLIER OR LATER ARRIVAL AT “ TC “ ARE DETAILED AT POINT 7.
NOTE 2 – Assuming the time indicated in the section time column near the TC 2 is 35′ Team No 01 departing at 08.30 must pass TC2 at 09.05 ( 08.30 + 35 ) and Team No 4 Departing at 08.31.30″ must pass TC2 at exactly 09.06.30″ ( 08.31`.30” + 35`) A stopwatch is necessary. The control zone are indicated as follows
Yellow Board = Sign advising you are approaching a Zone – Red Board = Sign advising the START of the Zone
Beige Board = Sign advising the END of the Zone
Teams must drive from RED to BEIGE without stopping – 100 Penalty point for stopping
4:- Time of passage at any TC must always be calculated ongoing from the flag off time.
NOTE 3 – Should a vehicle pass through a TC five minutes earlier or later this vehicle has 5 minutes more or 5 minutes less
to reach and pass the next TC ( Time Control )
5:- Immediately after some TC`s there are some Special Stages ( SS ) to be covered in the exact time specified in the time column of your driving schedule. penalties are calculated at one hundredth of second. see note 8.
6:- Along the recommended route you will find some Passage Controls (PC) where your driving schedule will be stamped. Missing a PC or passing at a PC with over 20 minutes delay on the theoretical time calculated in your Driving schedule it will cost you 600 PENALTY POINTS.
Note 4 : Assuming the distance between TC2 and PC 1 is 20 miles and the average speed indicated in your road book is 30 miles per hour Car 01 Passing Time Control 2 at 09.05 should arrive at Passage Control 1 at 09.45
( 20 miles at the average speed of 30 miles per hour = 40 minutes which is the theoretical time.
