Rally details The rally, which will be approximately 160km long, will be on choice paved roads near Victoria. There will be two legs, with a midpoint gas and break stop in Brentwood Bay. Legs are separated into several Regularities, which are timed sections in which your time of passing will be taken by hidden checkpoint controls, and Transits, which are untimed sections. Timing is done by drive-by control positions. They record your time as you pass. Controls will not be placed within 200m of the beginning or end of a regularity, a STOP, a YIELD, or any instruction causing the entrants to stop or pause. Scoring is done by perfect time with 1 penalty point per second late or early. Your goal is to accurately follow the average speeds instructed to achieve the lowest score possible. The speeds will always be below the posted limit, and transit sections will allow ample time to reach the next regularity without breaking the speed limit. The maximum penalty for any given checkpoint is 300 points (5 minutes), to a maximum of 600 points over any single regularity. Classes are: - Novice – Just like it sounds, newcomers not having done more than 3 other rallies. - Experienced – Any other rallyist who has done more than 3 events. Awards will be given to the Novice Class winners, and dash plaques go to all entrants. Rally Day – Saturday March 20 2005 - 10:30 a.m. – Registration at the A & W Langford. Exit #14 off T.C.
