         The use of Stage Notes will be permitted provided that they are original copies as created for this

         For those competitors wishing to purchase the Stage Notes it is essential that they advise of their
         intention on the separate order form attached to the entry form. The cost is $230 per competitor.

                   THE ORDER FORM MUST BE SENT DIRECTLY TO NEIL ALLPORT MOTORSPORT
                                     NOT THE RALLY ORGANISERS

           NOTE:      The cost for stage notes and reconnaissance for NZRC competitors is included in
                      the entry fee – no separate order for notes is required for these competitors.



           INFORMATION:

           The stage note system uses an automated computer program to generate a description of the
           special stage road using sensors fitted to a vehicle driven through each stage.

           Such notes describe the route in more detail than the Road Book and can be used without
           reconnaissance.

           The purchase and use of the stage notes is a direct contract between the competitor and Neil
           Allport Motorsport with the Otago Sports Car Club’s involvement being limited to authorising the
           use and facilitating the preparation and distribution on behalf of Neil Allport Motorsport.

           There is no obligation on any competitor to purchase these stage notes.



12.      RECONNAISSANCE
         An opportunity exists for competitors who purchase the approved stage notes to take part in a one-

         notes.

         these regulations.

              The Road Book contains a ‘Temporary Withdrawal’ form, a ‘Final Withdrawal’ form and a

         •    No competitor will be permitted to restart the rally once they have handed in a ‘Final Withdrawal’
              form.
         •    If a competitor believes that they may be able to restart after an incident they should complete a
              ‘Temporary Withdrawal’ form and hand it to an appropriate official.
         •    If a competitor then wishes to re-join the event they must only do so either (a) at the ‘out’ control
              of a Service Park or (b) at the start control of a stage immediately following a Service Park.
              They must rejoin at a time that does not cause any delay to the event. They must hand in a
              ‘Rejoining form’ to the Post Chief. They must rejoin within the Division they started in. If this is
              not possible then they must proceed to another stage before rejoining.
         All cars that have suffered accident damage must be checked and cleared by a Scrutineer or
         designated official before rejoining.


14.      CO-ORDINATION

         ‘Classic’ entrants should note the following:
         If a ‘Classic’ entrant turns up at the start of a stage later than the scheduled start time of the last

         All Service and Support vehicles are to be registered with the Organisers at the time of entry. They
         must display throughout the event the official competition numbers and applicable advertising
         material that will be issued at Documentation. Servicing from an unregistered vehicle will be
         deemed to be the same as servicing in a prohibited area and will be penalised accordingly.

              Historics)
              Servicing will only be permitted in areas designated as Service Parks in the Road Book. The
              organisers may arrange for cars to be washed.

         b.   All Other Competitors (including NZRC Historics)
              Servicing is encouraged in areas designated as Service Parks or Service Areas in the Road
              Book. However, vehicles competing may service in other areas except where expressly
              forbidden. Accordingly, vehicles in these divisions will not have to clock in or out of service park
              controls.

 SECTION 5                STAGE DESCRIPTIONS

LEG ONE

Part A :           Friday 8th April 2011

SS1 / S11              Taieri Beach Long       17 km
Starts on typical forestry road and then progresses onto public road for last 9.5 km. Medium gravel
with a good base. Stage last used in this direction in 2005 (SS9). Stage used in reverse direction
in 2008 (SS2) and 2004 (SS3). Last 9.5 km used in 2007 (SS13).

SS2                    Henley                  18.5 km
New stage. Uses part of Kuri Bush stage but also gravel roads not previously used. Contains
approximately 2 km fast tarmac in middle of stage.

SS3                    Whare Flat              11 km
This is a new version of Whare Flat. It starts with a fast and flowing downhill section for
approximately 5 km before winding its way back up to the start point. 50/50 mixture of fast downhill
forestry and tighter uphill public roads. No fords!

Part B :           Saturday 9th April 2011

SS4                    Athenaeum Road          13 km
Used for club rallies but is a new stage to Championship rallying. Fast flowing public road stage
with tricky crests. Medium / heavy gravel.

SS5                    Blue Spur               7 km
Short stage, never rallied on before. Very fast at start on wide and smooth public roads. Finishes
after winding along a ridge line with some tricky crests. Medium / heavy gravel.

SS6                    Corkscrew Road          17 km
An old favourite run on public roads with medium / heavy gravel on a hard base. A mixture of
some twisty sections between fast and flowing roads. Finishes alongside a river on the left. Last
used in 2007 (SS6).

SS7                    Waitahuna               20 km
Another favourite. Starts fast on wide flowing public road with medium / heavy gravel. Tightens up
towards finish. Last used in 2007 (then called Breakneck Road SS7).

SS8 / SS15             Berwick                 45 km
This is a new stage in the Berwick Forest. Some sections have been used in previous years but
much is new or is in a new configuration. Typical Otago forest stage. Medium gravel over a hard
base, generally smooth but with some heavy sharp gravel in places. Roads generally wide and
fast with downhill finish at “Allport’s ditch”.

SS9                    Super Stage             2km
Needs little introduction – 4 laps of a city block on tarmac. Fast and exciting with a big crowd, but
watch the kerbs!

LEG TWO            :     Sunday 10th April

SS10               Forthill                    20 km
Another public road stage, medium gravel. Fast and flowing with gnarly crests. Tightens at finish.
Last used in its entirety in 2006 but in reverse direction (SS5). Was used in this direction in 2005
(SS4).

SS11               Taieri Beach Long 2         17 km


SS12               Kuri Bush                   15 km
The classic Otago stage. Used for many years. Untold crests, starts fast and gets faster with wide
flowing public roads. Needs commitment.

SS13               McIntosh Road               8 km
A short blast on a fast flowing public road that changes to a dry weather road at a tricky tarmac
intersection with plenty of spectators. This is the stage with the ‘huge dip’. Last used in 2009
(SS5) and 2007 (SS3).

SS14               Waipori Gorge               13 km
Run ‘uphill’ again as was the case in 2010 and 2009. A great stage alongside the Waipori River on
medium gravel. Tighter than most Otago rally stages.

SS15               Berwick 2                   45 km
