GENERAL REGULATIONS & PENALTIES.

<Reminder!> R.10.4.4  – The penalty to be imposed for stopping within sight of but outside the control area of any Intermediate Time Control and the Finish Time Control shall be 0 minutes.

N.B. As such, no Measured Distance facility shall be provided, nor shall Time/Speed/Distance tables be required. The organisers' mileages shall be deemed to be correct in all cases, and shall not be subject to protest nor appeal.

 

 

TIMING & CONTROLS.

Control & timing procedures are elaborated upon as follows:

R.9.2.1. Any control is considered to extend for 50m around the actual point at which Officials are making their records, or 3m in the case of NAM “See Diagram” controls. You may advance into the control area up to one minute preceding your due time, and wait for your time.

R.12.3. The time of arrival at or departure from a control including intermediate and final controls of Regularity Sections, will be the time at which the Time Card is presented by the Competitor concerned, providing all crew members and cars are within the control area. All marshals shall be instructed that no card marking shall occur until the time due is shown on their clock.

R.30.2.2. Where a control at the end of a section timed to the second (or to the second and part thereof) also forms the start of a section timed to the minute, the time of departure will be considered as being the same as arrival, but ignoring any seconds or parts thereof.
