BC TSD Rally
Navigational Rallying has
been practiced in Canada since the early 1950's,
and tests both driver and navigator. Instead of
running flat-out, as in a performance rally, navigational
events use the Time-Speed-Distance (TSD) formula.
In a TSD section, a particular average speed is
listed and the teams must drive as close as possible
to that speed. Checkpoints are placed at unknown
locations in the TSD section and teams are penalized
for passing them early or late. Average speeds are
always within posted speed limits, and the road
is not closed to the public, so teams must obey
all traffic laws. The route usually follows roads
that are similar to those used in performance rallies:
narrow winding forestry roads, ranch roads and other
less-traveled roads. Route finding is generally
not difficult, but the navigator has a lot of work
to do to keep the driver on time.
has been the premier winter driver's rally in B.C. since
its inception in 1957. Competitors come from all over Canada
and the US.
