  21. CONTROLS

    Controls will open 20 minutes before the first car. Maximum lateness will be 30 minutes.

    Controls & checks will be designated one of the following:

    MTCMain Time Controls located at the start and finish of each half of the event that competitors MUST visit, timed to the previous whole minute. The controls at the end of each half end neutral sections.
    STCControl at the end of a standard section, timed to the previous whole minute.
    TTCControl at the end of a transport section where you may make up time subject to ¾ rule.
    TRCTime recovery control at the end of a standard section where you may make up time as allowed on the time card
    NTC Control at the end of a neutral section, timed to the previous whole minute.
    RTCControl at the end of a regularity section, timed to the previous whole minute.
    IRTCControl in the middle of a regularity section timed to the previous whole second.
    PCManned check untimed used as a manned route check or where a clock fails.
    RCRoute Check, evidenced by writing down a seven digit code on time cards and signed by the marshal at the next manned control.

    If an official clock fails, then the control will assume the status of a PC.

    If a control is known to be unmanned, proceed to the next manned control by the route instructions. Your due time at the next control will be the time for that section and the next added up. Unmanned controls will be advised at the briefing or at MTC1.

    To be classified as a finisher, competitors must visit two thirds of all manned controls and visit all main time controls (MTC's) within their maximum permitted lateness. (K20.1). Any lateness must be made up at the rest halts. Competitors will restart from the MTC after the rest halt at the scheduled time as shown on the time card plus their start number.

  22. INSURANCE - BRADSTOCK RALLY SCHEME

    The Club has applied to Bradstock Insurance Brokers for a Blanket Certificate of Insurance under the above scheme to provide those competitors who need to use the scheme with third party cover to meet RTA requirements on the road. The standard premium (before loading) is £15.13 per car. In order to compete in the event, drivers must be able to sign one of the declarations on the entry form as shown below: -

    1. I have extended my own motor insurance in accordance with regulation B 9.3.6 & K6.1.4 (b) for this event and require no cover under the Bradstock scheme.
    2. I have a Bradstock letter confirming the terms they will cover me.
    3. I already hold a valid NES letter but now require cover under the Bradstock Scheme. The premiums have not been loaded in the past.
    4. I have neither Bradstock nor any valid NES letter, but require cover under the Bradstock scheme. I declare that I have:
      4.1No physical or mental disabilities.
      4.2No convictions other than a maximum of six speeding points.
      4.3No more that one fault accident in the last three years.
      4.4And that I am over 18 years old and have held a full licence for at least six months.
      4.5No other material facts to disclose.

    If you are unable to sign any of these declarations, please indicate on the entry form and we will send you details of how we can arrange cover for you. Please telephone the entries secretary if you are putting in a late entry.

  23. UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES

    The organisers reserve the right to cancel part or the entire event if necessary.

  24. ROUTE

    The route will be approximately 135 miles on metalled roads. Petrol will be available after approximately 50 and 90 miles. The route will be the shortest route on any road marked on the map between controls avoiding out of bounds areas and complying with the road book. All official distances are deemed correct and no protest will be allowed.

  25. INTERPRETATION

    It is not a marshal's duty to interpret or explain any regulation, if in doubt ask an official preferably before the start.

  26. TIMING HINTS

    A brief explanation of the type of sections being used on the event is shown below: -

    1. Standard Sections STC

      You are penalised for losing time on these sections. If you take a time earlier than allowed, the penalties are doubled. You are not penalised for arriving early if you can make up time subject to strict guidelines (see 5 below). If you cut route and rejoin at a standard control you CAN rejoin at your scheduled time. A standard section may also be timed to the second and will be shown as STCS on the time card.

    2. Neutral Sections NTC

      Neutral sections are non-competitive; you cannot make up time on these sections no matter how late you are. You must grin and bear it - the penalties are severe at one fail. If you rejoin at a neutral control, you MUST take a time equivalent to the same number of minutes late at the last control you recorded a time.

    3. Transport Sections TTC

      These sections are used to take you from one part of the route to another. You are not penalised for arriving late other than for maximum lateness. You may make up time subject to section 5.

    4. Regularity Sections

      These sections require you to stop at intermediate control [IRTC] where you will be timed to the previous second as you enter the control. The control at the end of the section RTC is timed to the previous whole minute. Time CANNOT be made up in these sections.

    5. Time Make-ups and the Three-Quarter Rule.

      Make the most of any designated time make-up sections or any standard sections that are easily cleanable. If such a section is 4 miles or less you can take any time allowed for the section. If it is more than 4 miles then you can only make up a quarter of the total time allowed, e.g. if it is 6 miles long and the time allowed is 12 minutes then you can take 9 minutes for the section without penalty. The above only applies if you are running late in the first place. You will be penalised if you make up time and book in before your scheduled time. The make up time allowed is shown on your timecards.

    6. Outside Total Lateness. (OTL)

      Always watch OTL. If you are more than 30 minutes late at any time control then you pick up a maximum penalty of 1 Fail. So if you do reach OTL then don't keep plodding on - instead miss out a section and get yourself back within 30 minutes lateness. See 1 & 2 above as where you should rejoin. You can work out your OTL time at any control by adding your start number plus 31 to the car 0 due time.

  27. GENERAL TIPS
    1. Do not rely on marshals to explain what you have to do. It is not their job and some may be as green as you are.
    2. Do not follow another competitor. Only do so if you are absolutely hopelessly lost.
    3. If you end up going competitive (in a Standard Section) and you have to get out to open a gate then you can safely assume that you have gone the wrong way.
    4. Make sure you have plenty of pencils, rubbers etc. readily at hand.
    5. Tell your driver to slow down if you are looking for tricky junctions. It is a common tendency for novice drivers to drive as fast as possible all the time. In doing so you invariably end up overshooting junctions or picking up wrong directions into a control.
    6. Make sure any route checks are recorded properly. See ASR 16d

  28. NAVIGATION EXAMPLES
    1. Map References are simply a list of points to visit, the direction of approach to a point is indicated by letters in front of the reference, the departure by the letters after. Map references will also give those points, which are blackspots and should not be visited. If these are out of order, they will be listed as per the tulips shown below. All examples follow the same route.
      653 407 WSE 637 426 ENESW 673 446 WFinishing point ESE 659 457
    2. Spot Heights proceed via the spot height only pass through those specified treat any others as Blackspots. Spot heights may also be given as avoids.

      5 7 9 16 18 12

    3. Entering or departing Grid Squares cross into/from the grid square in the direction given. This is a variation of grid lines.

      E S S E W S W W S W E S E Enter the grid squares in the direction given

    4. Tulips are a pictorial representation of each junction encountered. These will be in either numerical or alphabetical order and will show the order in which they must be visited if not in order. The example shows arrows for the route to be followed and dots for the road you are on. Whites will be shown as a solid line. Tulips may also be shown with the direction of approach from the bottom. They will show in which order the junctions are to be used either numerically or alphabetically and may be increasing or decreasing.

      Tulips
    5. Gridlines cross the grid lines (the faint blue horizontal and vertical lines) in the specified order. They may be in numerical order or may be shown as V (vertical) or H (horizontal), LONG (longitude) or LAT (latitude)

      65 41 42 64 64 43 65 66 44 67 67 45 66 or in combination

    6. Herringbones. The backbone of the herringbone is the correct route. A line on the left indicates either a road passed on the left, or turning right off the road you were on. A line on the right similarly means pass a road on the right, or turn left. A ‘V’ on either side indicates turning at a crossroads in the opposite direction to the side the V is on, and a line on each side means straight on at a crossroads. The arrow indicates the direction of travel and the route may read from right to left.
