RULES

General

The goal of the competition is to drive all offroad tracks from start to finish as fast as possible or find the shortest tracks and preserve material.
Check points must be reached. Not reached check points will be punished with time penalities.

Start will happen in intevall of 5-10 minutes. Fist sequence is fortune (drawn)

It is very important to understand that it is not allowed to use private offroad areas or tracks and respect all signs (special tracks are beeing controled). Anyhow, we (the organizers) are not able to control every single track or the whole area, so the final responsibility remain at the participants.

Check points

Check points are marked target points - mostly on trees with an symbol of "R1".
Missing check points will be assessed with penalties (minutes). Check points are mostly noted in the road book or sometimes marked in the map. Check points might  also be necessary to be calculated and/or to be constructed (angle, distance, etc.) or their findings are formulated textually (terrain, shrine, ...)
A check point is catched if all cars are close to the check point (GPS inaccuracy will be granted).

Important: all cars have to catch the check points because only the car with the fewest check points will be used for the team assessment!

Shortest track

During a two day special the teams have to catch a given number of check points in a given time period. The team can choose the sequence as well as the track to catch these check points!

Assessment:

  • driving time is insignificant - only the latest possible arrival time has to be kept ("latest possible arrival time")
  • relevant is the number of catched check points and
  • in case that teams collected the the same number of check points (which will be probalble): the shortest track will be relevant (from departure Hotel 1 on the 3rd day till arrival on Camp 2 on the 4th day)

Based on that rules there will be a standing at the end of this two-day-special. The amount of penalty minutes are depending on this standing as follows:
  1st place: no penalty time
  2nd place: penalty time 01:00 (1 hour)
  3rd: penalty time 02:00
  ...
  16th place : penalty time 15:00
  ...

Ranking and score

The ranking is based on the elapsed time the teams needs to complete (from start to finish) plus the amount of penalty minutes as follows:

  • not reached check points: individual penalty minutes (depending on difficulty of the check point to reach) .The amount of penalty minutes of every check point is either noted in the road-book or in the map.
  • help by organizer: 60 minutes
  • Exceeding the "must arrival time" (target, finish, camp): doubles the time between the "must arrival time" and effective arrival time
  • Exceeding the "latest possible arrival time": Maximum daily score (time + double time) and no reached check points are assessed
  • Lost on-board-card or damaged/broken seals: Maximum daily score (time + double time) and no reached check points are assessed
  • Unsportsmanlike behaivior: 60 minutes penalty up to disqualification
  • Crop damages (cut vital trees, drive on fields or privat land, ...): 60 minutes penalty up to disqualification

The vehicle with the worst performance (per day) of the team will be determined for the ranking of the whole team. Each team has to arrive with the same vehicle(s) at the stage finish as the team started.

On total vehicle breakdown new teams can be built pre to the stages. Ranking / scoring as follows:

  • New team consist of less cars than old team: Maximum daily score (time + double time) and no reached check points are assessed for the previous stage
  • New team consist of more cars than old team: the car with the worst performance (per day) will be determined for the ranking of the whole team. Backdated for all stages.
  • New team consist of equal cars than old team: Maximum daily score (time + double time) and no reached check points are assessed for the previous stage. Additionally the car with the worst performance (per day) will be determined for the ranking of the whole team. Backdated for all stages.

Results/standings will be published daily.

Winner will be the team with the shortest driving time.
