NOTE: Novice Workshops are not a Championship
series. You don't need to be a member of a club.
The novice workshops are individual courses with
the intent to build team skills and confidence.
If you miss one of the workshops, the material from
the previous events will be supplied and the instructors
will be able to help you catch up on the material.
In addition to the scheduled four workshops there
will be a free briefing covering all basics in detail

|The rally runs on straight
forward instructions, and will be approximately
150km in length with roads a mixture of gravel and
paved. Maximum distance between refueling will be
150kms. Each leg of the rally will end with a gas
or rest stop, and is divided into Transit stages
and Regularity stages.
|Transit stages give a stage
time, which is adequate for completing the stage
well within posted speed limits. Your time will
not be recorded in Transit stages.
|Regularity stages list specific
average speeds, which are below posted speed limits,
and which you must maintain in each part of the
stage. Timing controls will be in Regularity stages
only, and will not be placed within 200 metres of
stop signs or busy intersections. Procedure when
approaching a control is simply to drive straight
past without stopping. The control official will
record your time. For double-checking the results,
you may wish to note the time and mileage at each
control but this is not required. Your timing in
these stages determines your score. Timing is to
the second, with one point per second early or late
from absolute rally time. The lowest score wins.
The maximum penalty at a control is 300 points (5
minutes) to a maximum of 600 points (10 minutes)
in any one regularity section. Control officials
will remain in place at least until all remaining
cars are beyond 10 minutes late. Ties will be broken
by the most zero scores, then the most 1 second
|Exceptions to scoring: a competitor
coming upon an accident is required to stop and
render aid if possible. In such cases, the competitor
should record the time and mileage in the stage,
and the times lost as a result and give a written
declaration of this to a rally official. Unless
it is determined that the incident did not occur
as declared, the declaration will be accepted and
the remainder of the leg scored as if delayed by
the time lost. Hence, lost time must not be made
up until the next end of the leg. Declarations of
time lost will also be considered for organizers'
errors, which make official time unattainable, and
other discretionary safety concerns.
