Exclusion/Disqualification.
Course Note Stage
Course Note Stage Date: Friday, September 6th. 1300 to 1500 hours
Course Note Stage Regulations
Unrestricted reconnaissance for the Wild West International ProRally would likely cause disturbance that could
jeopardize the running of the event. Because of this, reconnaissance is restricted in both duration and number of
passes, and is governed by the following set of strictly-enforced regulations:
1. Vehicles. Competitors may use any street licensed vehicle that is not prepared for rally competition. Tires must
be DOT approved. No rally tires allowed.
2. Registration. Competitors are required to register for the Course Note Stage. Registration may be made at HQ
Thursday, September 5th, 1800-1900 hours . Proof of valid registration and insurance for the reconnaissance
vehicle must be presented at this registration. Note that this is an abbreviated registration strictly for the Course
Note Stage. It does not constitute full registration for the event.
3. Route Book. Upon successful completion of registration competitors will be issued a Course Note Stage booklet
that contains a map along with a route book.
4. Numbers. Upon successful completion of reconnaissance registration competitors will be issued Course Note
Stage numbers that must be affixed to the outside of the rear side window on both sides of the car. Failure to
correctly display these numbers will result in refusal to participate in the reconnaissance.
5. Log Sheet. Upon successful completion of Course Note Stage registration, competitors will be issued with a log
sheet that must be carried in the car for the duration of the reconnaissance. This log sheet will be used to record
every run of the course note stage. It must be presented to the stage marshal located at the start of the stage to
be annotated and initialed.
Failure to produce this card will result in refusal to participate in the reconnaissance.
6. Stage Traversal. Competitors are permitted on the stage road only between the posted opening and closing
times for the stage. Travel along a stage may only be in the direction of the stage. No reversing is permitted in a
stage. Competitors are permitted a maximum of 2 passes of the stage. Competitors who violate of any of these
three regulations (open times, direction of travel, number of passes) will be prohibited from starting the rally.
7. Traffic Regulations. All of the roads, both stages and liaisons, are open to the general public during
reconnaissance. Competitors will likely encounter local non-rally traffic traveling in both directions. All competitors
must obey all local traffic regulations. A maximum speed of 35mph, or the posted legal limit if lower, is imposed on
all special stages during reconnaissance. Radar will be used to verify compliance with speed limits. A fine of $500
will penalize the first infraction. A second infraction will cause a five (5) minute time penalty. Competitors who
receive a third infraction will be prohibited from starting the rally. Any fines imposed must be paid before the start
can be taken.
8. Exclusion. Any competitor attempting to participate in reconnaissance under any condition that is grounds for
refusal to participate will not be allowed to start the rally.

given timetable.
15.1.2 Any crew reporting to the scrutineering area (and/or administrative checks) outside the time limits prescribed in the
supplementary regulations of the rally will not be allowed to start, except in a case of force majeure duly recognised as such by the
Stewards.
15.1.3 The crew must show the car's homologation form as well as any appendices to this form. If these are not submitted, the
Stewards may pronounce a penalty which may go as far as refusal to allow the car to start.
15.1.4 After scrutineering, if a car is found not to comply with technical and/or safety regulations, the Stewards may set a deadline
before which the car must be made to comply.
15.1.5 Any car which does not comply may be refused the start by the Stewards based on the report presented by the scrutineers.
15.1.6 The checks carried out before the start will be of a completely general nature (checking of licenses, make and model of car,
apparent conformity of the car with the group in which it is entered, essential safety items, conformity of the car with the National
Road Traffic Laws, etc.).
15.1.7 This shall include:
15.1.7.1 Identification of the crew. Each member must have with him two recent identity photos (4 x 4 cm).

is responsible for the technical conformity of his car throughout the duration of the rally, under penalty of exclusion to be pronounced
by the clerk of the course.
15.1.9 Should identification marks (see Article 15.1.7) be affixed, it is the responsibility of the crew alone to see that these are
preserved intact until the end of the rally. Should they be missing, the clerk of the course will exclude the car from the rally. It is also
the responsibility of the crew to see to it that any part of the car, which has been handled during checking, is reinstalled correctly.
15.1.10 Any fraud discovered, and in particular identification marks presented as original and untouched which have been tampered
with, will result in the exclusion by the clerk of the course of the crew, as well as of any other competitor or crew who has helped or
been involved in the carrying out of the infringement. This will not prejudice any demands which may additionally be made to the
competitor's or accomplice's ASN concerning the imposition of heavier sanctions. Additionally, the Stewards may apply Article 152 of
the Code if they deem it necessary.

from the FIA General Prescriptions for Rallies
15.2 Final Control
15.2.1 As soon as each crew arrives it must drive its car to the parc fermé. A brief check shall be carried out there to verify:
15.2.1.1 Its conformity with the car submitted at initial scrutineering
11
15.2.1.2 If there is cause to impose any of the penalties provided for.
15.2.2 The absence of one of the identification marks, as per Article 15.1.7, shall result in exclusion.
15.2.3 Thorough scrutineering, involving the dismantling of the cars and/or as detailed in Article 15.2.5, may be carried out at the
absolute discretion of the Stewards ex officio or following a protest or upon the recommendation of the clerk of the course.
15.2.4 Should the above-mentioned dismantling be the result of a protest, a deposit (the amount of which shall be specified in the
supplementary regulations), to be paid in advance and covering all the costs incurred by the operation, shall be demanded from the
claimant. If the protest is upheld, the deposit shall be reimbursed to the claimant, and charged to the defaulting competitor.
15.2.5 End-of-rally scrutineering will concern at least the following components:
- suspension
- brakes
- transmission
- the conformity of the chassis/body shell
- the restrictor and turbocharger if one exists.
The minimum number of cars to be scrutineered will be the first two cars of different makes in the general classification, the car
classified first in Group A or N, the car classified first in the FIA Super 1600 Championship, if not included in the aforementioned, and
possibly the car classified first in the promotion category.
XVI. START AND RESTART
Before the start and before any restarts, the Organizers may assemble all the competing cars in a starting area, on the conditions
given in the supplementary regulations. In this case, the penalties (exclusively pecuniary) for late arrival in the start area shall be
specified in the supplementary regulations.
16.1 Crews may enter the start parc fermé 10 minutes before their start time.
16.2 The target starting time will appear on each crew's time card.
16.3 Any late arrival, ascribable to the crew, at the start of the rally or of a leg or a section shall be penalized by 10 seconds for every
minute or fraction of a minute late. Any crew reporting more than 15 minutes late shall not be allowed to start.
16.4 Since the crews have 15 minutes within which to report at the start of the rally, of a leg or a section, if they report within these 15
minutes the actual starting time shall be entered on the time card.
16.5 The starting order, as detailed in the relevant Championship regulations, will then remain unchanged until at least 10 % of the
total distance of the special stages has been completed.
16.6 The starting order for the subsequent legs will then be determined according to the provisional classification established at the
end of the previous leg and will be posted at the time specified in the programme of the supplementary regulations.
XVII. TIME CARD
17.1 At the start of the rally, each crew is given a time card on which the time allowed to cover the distance between two consecutive
time controls shall appear. This card has to be handed in at the finish control of one section and replaced with a new one before the
start of the next section. Several time cards may be issued together, bound in the form of a book, covering a section or leg of the rally.
Each crew is solely responsible for its time card. The crew alone is responsible for submitting the time card at the different controls
and for the accuracy of the entries. The crew is responsible for any entries made on the time card. Therefore, it is up to the crew to
submit its time card to the marshals at the correct time, and to check that the time is correctly entered.
Hours and minutes must always be shown thus: 00.01 - 24.00, only the minutes which have elapsed will be counted. Throughout the
rally, the official time is that specified in the supplementary regulations.
17.2 The time card must be available for inspection on demand, especially at the controls where it must be presented personally by a
member of the crew for stamping and entry of times recorded.
17.3 Any correction or amendment made to the time card will result in exclusion by the clerk of the course, unless the appropriate
marshal has approved such correction or amendment.
12
17.4 The absence of a stamp or signature from any passage control, the absence of a time entry at a time control, or the failure to
hand in the time card at each control (time, passage or regrouping) or at the finish, will result in the exclusion of the crew concerned
by the clerk of the course.
17.5 The appropriate marshal is the only person allowed to enter the time on the time card, by hand or by means of a printout device.
17.6 Any divergence between the times entered on the crew's time card and those entered on the official documents of the rally will
form the subject of an inquiry by the Stewards, who will deliver a final judgment.
XVIII. PROCEDURE FOR THE FUNCTIONING OF CONTROLS
18.1 General provisions
18.1.1 All controls, i.e. passage and time controls, start and finish of special stages, regrouping and neutralization control areas, are
indicated by means of FIA approved standardized signs.
18.1.2 A warning sign on a yellow background marks the beginning of the control area. At a distance of no less than 25 m, an
identical sign on a red background indicates the position of the control. The end of the control area, approximately 25 m further on, is
indicated by a final sign on a beige background with three black transversal stripes.
18.1.3 All control areas (i.e. all the areas between the first yellow warning signal and the final beige sign with three transversal stripes)
are considered as parcs fermé (see Article 20.1.2) and no repairs or assistance may take place within the control area.
18.1.4 The stopping time within any control area must not exceed the time necessary for carrying out control operations.
18.1.5 The target check-in time is the responsibility of the crews alone, who may consult the official clock on the control table.
18.1.6 The marshals may not give them any information on this target check-in time.
18.1.7 Controls shall be ready to function 15 minutes before the target time for the passage of the first competing car.
18.1.8 Unless the clerk of the course decides otherwise, they will cease to operate 15 minutes after the target time for the arrival of
the last competing car, plus exclusion time.
18.1.9 Crews are obliged to follow the instructions of the marshal in charge of any control. Failure to do so will result in a penalty
which may go as far as exclusion, at the discretion of the Stewards.
18.2 Signage of controls
18.2.1 The
signs which appear in Appendix I must be used.
18.2.2 All controls, i.e. time controls, passage controls, starting and finishing controls of special stages and stop points, are indicated
by means of standardized signs complying with the drawings in Appendix I.
18.2.3 The signage of the control area is carried out by means of three signs as described hereafter: (see Appendix I). N.B. If need
be, the signs on a yellow background can be made more conspicuous by the addition of a yellow flag, and the signs on a red
background, by a red flag.
18.2.4 Time Control
18.2.4.1 Sign N°1 on a board with a yellow background indicates the beginning of the control area.
18.2.4.2 The location of the control itself is indicated by sign N°1 on a red background, the end of the control area being indicated by
sign N°5 (beige background).
18.2.5 Passage Control
Signs will be displayed in the same manner as at time controls, except that the sign used will be N°2 at the beginning of the control
area and at the control, with sign N° 5 to indicate the end of the control area.
18.2.6 Special Stage
18.2.6.1 The starting point is indicated by means of a sign N°3 on a red background.
18.2.6.2 Sign N°4 on a yellow background precedes the finish. Sign N°4 on a red background indicates the finishing line, where times
will be taken.
18.2.6.3 A "STOP" sign on a red background is placed approx. 100 to 300 m further on.
18.3 Control area
All control officials must be identifiable. At each control, the chief must wear a distinctive tabard in order to be immediately identifiable.
18.4. Passage Controls
13
At these controls, identified by the signs shown in Appendix 1, the marshals must simply stamp and/or sign the time card as soon as it
is handed in by the crew, without mentioning the time of passage.
18.5 Time Controls
At these controls, the marshals shall mark on the time card the time at which the card was handed in. Timing will be recorded to the
complete minute.
18.6 Check-in procedure
18.6.1 The check-in procedure begins at the moment the car passes the time control area entry sign.
18.6.2 Between the area entry sign and the control, the crew is forbidden to stop for any reason or to drive at an abnormally slow
speed.
18.6.3 The actual timing and entry of the time on the time card can only be carried out if the two crew members and the car are in the
control area and within the immediate vicinity of the control table.
18.6.4 The check-in time corresponds to the exact moment at which one of the crew members hands the time card to the appropriate
marshal.
18.6.5 Then, either by hand or by means of a print-out device, the appropriate marshal marks on the card the actual time at which the
card was handed in, and nothing else.
18.6.6 The target check-in time is the time obtained by adding the time allowed to complete the road section to the start time for this
section, these times being expressed to the minute.
18.6.7 The crew will not incur any penalty for checking in before time if the car enters the control area during the target check-in
minute or the minute preceding it.
18.6.8 The crew does not incur any penalty for lateness if the act of handing the card to the appropriate marshal takes place during
the target check-in minute.
18.6.9 Example: A crew, which is supposed to check in at a control at 18h58’, shall be considered on time if the check-in takes place
between 18h58'00" and 18h58'59".
Any difference between the actual check-in time and the target check-in time shall be penalized as follows:
a) for late arrival: 10 seconds per minute or fraction of a minute
b) for early arrival: 1 minute per minute or fraction of a minute.
18.6.10At the discretion of the clerk of the course, a crew, which has been penalized for early arrival, may be neutralized for the
amount of time necessary for it to leave at the time originally envisaged.
18.6.11At the time controls at the end of a leg, of a section, of a regrouping, or at the end of the event, the Organizers may authorize
the crews to check in advance without incurring any penalty, provided that this clause has been stated in the supplementary
regulations of the rally or is indicated in a later bulletin. However, the time entered on the time card is the scheduled time of the rally,
not the actual time.
18.6.12Lastly, if it is found that a crew has not observed the rules for the check-in procedure as defined above (and especially by
entering the control area more than a minute before the actual check-in time), the chief marshal at the control must make this the
subject of a written report to be sent immediately by the clerk of the course to the Stewards, who will impose any appropriate
sanction.
18.7 Time of Leaving Controls
18.7.1 If the next road section does not start with a special stage, the check-in time entered on the time card shall constitute both the
arrival time at the end of the road section and the starting time of the following one.
18.7.2 However, when a time control is followed by a start control for a special stage, the following procedure shall be applied:
a) These two controls shall be included in a single control area (see Articles 18.1.3 and 21.1.2), the signs of which shall be laid out
as follows:
a1) Yellow warning sign showing a clock face (beginning of area).
a2) Red sign showing a clock face (time control) at a distance of approximately 25 m.
a3) Red sign showing a flag (start of the special stage) at a distance of 50 to 200 m.
14
a4) Finally, end of control sign (3 transversal stripes on a beige background) 25 m further on.
b) At the time control at the finish of a road section, the appropriate marshal will enter on the time card on the one hand the check-in
time of the crew and on the other, its provisional starting time for the following road section. There must be a 3-minute gap to allow
the crew to prepare for the start. If two or more crews check in on the same minute at a time control immediately prior to the start of a
Special Stage, their provisional start times for that Special Stage shall be in the order of their relative arrival times at the preceding
time control. If the arrival times at the preceding time control are the same, then the times at the time control previous to that one will
be taken into account and so on.
c) Immediately after checking in at the time control, the competing car is driven to the control for the start of the special stage. The
marshal in charge of this control enters the time foreseen for the start of the stage on the stage sheet, which normally corresponds to
the provisional starting time for the road section. He will then start the crew according to the procedure laid down in these
Prescriptions (see Article 19.4).
d) If following an incident a divergence between the two entries exists, the starting time of the special stage is binding, unless the
Stewards decide otherwise.
18.8 Exclusion
Crews are bound, under pain of exclusion, to check in at all times in the correct sequence and in the direction of the rally route. It is
also prohibited to re-enter the control area.
18.8.1 Any lateness exceeding 15 minutes on the target time between two time controls, or a lateness exceeding 30 minutes at the
end of each section and/or leg of the rally, or a total lateness for the whole of the rally of more than 60 minutes will result in the
exclusion of the crew by the clerk of the course. In calculating such exclusion, the actual time and not the penalty time (10 seconds
per minute) applies.
18.8.2 Early arrival shall under no circumstances permit crews to reduce the lateness counting towards exclusion. However, penalties
for early arrival at a time control are not taken into consideration when calculating the time counting towards exclusion for exceeding
the maximum lateness.
Examples:
Road Section A :
Start 12h00 - target time 1h00 - check-in time 13h10
Penalty for late arrival = 10 x 10 seconds = 1 min. 40 seconds
Lateness counting toward exclusion = 10 mins.
Road Section B :
Target time 1h30 - check-in time 14h20
Penalty for early arrival = 20 mins.
Lateness counting towards exclusion = 10 mins. (not compounded)
Road Section C
Target time 2h00 - check-in 16h30
Penalty for late arrival = 10 x 10 seconds = 1 min. 40 seconds
Lateness counting towards exclusion = 10 additional mins.
TOTAL ROAD SECTIONS A + B + C
Total penalties (for late and early arrivals):
1 min. 40 seconds + 20 mins. + 1 min. 40 seconds = 23 mins. 20 seconds.
Total lateness counting towards exclusion: 10 + 10 = 20 mins.
18.8.3 The Stewards, upon the proposal of the clerk of the course may increase the exclusion time at any point. The crews concerned
shall be informed of this decision as soon as possible.
18.8.4 Exclusion for exceeding the maximum permitted lateness may only be announced at the end of a section or at the end of a leg.
18.9 Regrouping Controls
15
18.9.1 Regrouping areas may be set up along the route. Their entry and exit controls are subject to the general rules governing the
controls (see Articles 18.1, 18.2 and 18.3).
Inside a regrouping area, the engines may be started by means of an external battery. This battery must not then be taken on board
the car.
18.9.2 The purpose of these regrouping areas will be to reduce the intervals, which may have occurred between competing cars as a
result of late arrivals and/or retirements. Thus, the starting time from the regrouping control and not its duration must be taken into
account.
18.9.3 Example:
120 cars at the start of the rally
First regrouping of 4 hours
Starting time from the regrouping control: 12h01
18.9.3.a Target time for the arrival of car N°1 at the regrouping control 8h01.
Target time for the arrival of car N°120 at the regrouping control 10h00.
18.9.3.b Actual arrival time of car N°1 at the regrouping control 8h45.
Actual arrival time of car N°120 at the regrouping control 11h50
(60 cars have retired during this part of the rally).
18.9.3.c Starting time of car N°1 12h01.
Starting time of car N°120 13h00.
The respective length of stopping time shall therefore have been:
- 3h16 for car N°1.
- 1h10 for car N°120.
18.9.4 On their arrival at these regrouping controls, the crews will hand the appropriate marshal their time card book. The crews will
receive instructions on their starting time. They must then drive their car immediately and directly to the parc fermé (XX). Engines
must be stopped. The Organizers may give them a new set of time cards either at the entrance or at the exit of the parc fermé.
18.9.5 After regrouping the starting order should follow, as far as possible, the general classification drawn up on arrival at the
regrouping area. Otherwise, cars should start in the order in which they started the previous section. In no case can the times set
during special stages alone be taken into consideration when establishing the general classification which must include road penalties
as well as any other penalties expressed in time.
XIX. SPECIAL STAGES
19.1 Special stages are speed tests on roads closed for the rally. For special stages and competitive sections, timing will be to the
second, except in the World Championship in which the timing will be to the tenth of a second. However, timing to the tenth of a
second is permitted for rallies counting towards Championships other than the World Championship.
19.2 During the special stages, the crew must wear approved crash helmets and safety belts when in the car, under pain of exclusion.
19.3 Crews are forbidden to drive in the opposite direction to that of the special stage, under pain of exclusion to be pronounced by
the clerk of the course.
19.4 Special stages commence from a standing start, with the car placed on the starting line. Any car not able to start from this point
in the 20 seconds following a signal to do so is excluded and the car is immediately removed to a safe place.
19.5 Starts of special stages will be given as follows:
19.5.1 When the car with its crew on board has stopped in front of the starting control, the marshal will enter the time scheduled for
the start of the car in question on the special stage time card (hour and minute). He will hand this document back to the crew and will
count down aloud: 30" - 15" - 10" and the last five seconds one by one.
Alternatively, this method may be replaced by an electronic countdown system, counting down by seconds and clearly visible to the
crew from the start position. This system may be electronically coupled to a start line detection device that records any situation
where a car leaves the start line ahead of the correct signal. This system may also be synchronized with a starting lights system of
which the description and regulations must be included in the supplementary regulations of the rally.
16
19.5.2 When the last five seconds have elapsed, the starting signal shall be given whereupon the car must start immediately.
19.6 The start of a special stage may only be delayed in relation to the scheduled starting time by the appropriate marshal in a case
of force majeure.
19.7 In the event of a late start ascribable to the crew, the appropriate marshal will enter a new time, the penalty then being 1 minute
per minute or fraction of a minute late.
19.8 A false start, particularly one made before the signal has been given, is penalised as follows:
1st offence: ten seconds,
2nd offence: 1 minute,
3rd offence: 3 minutes,
further offences: at the Stewards' discretion.
These penalties do not prevent the Stewards from imposing heavier penalties if they judge it necessary.
19.9 Special stages end in a flying finish, stopping between the yellow warning sign and the stop sign being forbidden on pain of
exclusion. Timing is recorded on the finish line, using chronometers, which must have print-out equipment, and are backed up by
stopwatches, print-out not compulsory. At the finish of special stages, the timekeepers must be positioned level with the timing line
which is indicated by a sign with a chequered flag on a red background.
19.10 Any crew refusing to start in a special stage at the time and in the position allocated to it shall be given a penalty by the
Stewards, upon the proposal of the clerk of the course, of at least 10 minute, and which may go as far as exclusion if the clerk of the
course so requests, whether the special stage is run or not.
19.11 The crew must then report to the Stop Point indicated by a red "STOP" sign to have its finishing time entered on the special
stage time card (hour, minute, second, and tenth of a second for the World Championship). If the timekeepers cannot give the exact
finishing time to the marshals immediately, the latter will only stamp the crew's special stage time card and the time will be entered at
the next neutralisation area or regrouping control.
19.12 If, through a fault of the crew, the time entry cannot be made, the following penalties shall be imposed:
19.12.1 at the start: exclusion
19.12.2 at the finish (Stop Point): 5-minute time penalty.
19.13 The times recorded by the crews in each special stage, expressed in hours, minutes, seconds, and tenths of a second for the
World Championship, shall be added to their other penalties (road, technical, etc.) expressed in time.
19.14 During a special stage, assistance is forbidden.
Any breach of this rule may result in the guilty competitor being excluded from the event by the Stewards upon the proposal of the
clerk of the course. Such decision may only be announced at the end of a section or at the end of a leg.
19.15 The starting intervals for special stages must respect the same rules as those laid down for the start of the leg in question,
unless the FIA grants a waiver.
XX. PARC FERME
20.1 General conditions
While the cars are subject to parc fermé rules, any repair or refueling is strictly forbidden, under pain of exclusion. The cars are
subject to the parc fermé rules:
20.1.1 from the moment they enter a starting area (if one exists), a regrouping area or an end of leg area, until they leave it (see
Article 18.1.3);
20.1.2 from the moment they enter a control area until they leave it (see Article 18.1.3)
20.1.3 from the moment they reach the end of the rally until the time for lodging protests has expired (see XXV) and the Stewards
have authorised the opening of the parc fermé.
20.1.4 Nobody, except the officials of the rally carrying out a specific function, is allowed in the parc fermé.
20.1.5 At the start of a rally there may be a starting parc fermé, into which the cars must be driven a maximum of 4 hours before the
start.
20.1.6 Crews may enter the parc fermé ten minutes before their starting time.
17
To leave a parc fermé for the start, regrouping halt or end of leg (see Article 20.1.1), the crew shall be allowed to enter the parc fermé
10 minutes before its starting time. If a regrouping park does not exceed 15 minutes, crews may remain in this regrouping park.
20.1.7 Only the officials on duty and/or the members of the crew are authorised to push a competing car inside or at the entrance to
or exit from a parc fermé at a start, time control, regrouping halt or end of leg.
Inside the parc fermé, the engines may be started by means of an external battery. This battery must not then be taken aboard the
car.
20.2 Repairs in parc fermé
20.2.1 If the scrutineers of a rally consider that the state of a car has become so defective that the safety of normal road traffic might
be affected, this car must be repaired in the presence of a scrutineer.
20.2.2 The time taken for the repair must be considered, as so many minutes late, to prevent a crew from trying to regain the time lost
during such repairs, the penalty for which is 1 minute per minute or fraction of a minute. The crew will be given a new starting time
after the repair if the time taken results in any delay beyond the originally scheduled start time.
20.2.3 By way of exception and under the supervision of an authorised marshal or scrutineer, the crew may, while in the parc fermé,
at the start, regrouping area or end of leg change the windscreen or rear window with the possibility of outside help.
20.2.4 If, in order to change the windscreen, it is necessary to straighten the bodywork and/or safety rollbar, Article 20.2.2 will apply.
20.2.5 These repairs must be completed before the starting time, otherwise a penalty shall be imposed in accordance with the
provisions set out in Article 20.2.2.
20.2.6 As soon as they have parked their car in the parc fermé, the drivers must stop the engine and leave the parc fermé and no
member of the crew is allowed to re-enter it.
20.3 The drivers may not perform doughnuts at any time during the start, finish or other ceremonial procedures of a rally.
Service
Service Areas
There will be two service areas used during this rally; one at Cook Reload just off Kelley Road and one at the Mason
County Fairgrounds off Hwy 101.
Ground cloths are required under the rally vehicles at all service areas.
All automobile fluids must be prevented from reaching the ground. Spills must be cleaned up properly. All pop ups must
be weighted at the base to prevent blowing away in the event of winds.
The Mason County Fairgrounds area will be guarded through the night. However, this is a large area and precautions
should be taken to prevent theft of property.
A fuel truck from Sunoco will be located at the service areas. Teams should be prepared to bring fuel cans to the
designated refueling area and be prepared to refuel at that location only. (To be verified).
All service vehicles must be registered and properly identified while in the service areas. Service crews must
also present proper identification while in service areas.
Service Restrictions
One vehicle per starting national or FIA car may provide service throughout the rally. One service vehicle is allowed for
ClubRally. Additional vehicles may be allowed in the service area as space permits. These vehicles must be identified
and registered. All pop-ups must be weighted at the bases to prevent their blowing away in the event of winds.
Refueling is prohibited in the Service Area. Refueling may only be accomplished at the designated
Refueling Area noted in the Service Manual.

XII. SERVICING – REFUELING - REPAIRS
12.1 Servicing – General conditions
12.1.1 Service shall be defined as unrestricted work on a competing car except where limited in the present Article 12 and Article
12.2.
12.1.2 Throughout the rally, servicing of a competing car may be carried out only in service parks. However, the crew, using solely the
equipment on board and with no external physical assistance, may perform service on the car at any time, other than where this is
specifically prohibited.
12.1.3 Any infringement concerning servicing or any action defined as "Prohibited Service" (see 12.2) noted by the rally officials may
entail the application of Articles 152/153 of the Sporting Code by the Stewards. Depending on the gravity of the offence, other
sanctions may be applied by the World Motor Sport Council.
12.1.4 Cars may be equipped with an electronic device which will make it possible to check that prohibited servicing has not been
carried out on the car.
12.1.5 When necessary as part of service (i.e. changing a fuel tank or pump), emptying and/or refilling is permitted in a service park
provided that:
I) the work is carried out under the supervision of a marshal,

personnel (mechanics, press, etc) are admitted.
12.3.3 The speed of cars in the service parks may not exceed 30 kph; failure to comply with this limit shall result in a penalty applied
by the Stewards.
12.4 Vehicles allowed in the service parks
12.4.1 Two service vehicles per competing car starting the rally may provide service throughout the rally. These vehicles must be
clearly identified by means of "Service" plates issued by the Organisers and affixed in the locations specified.
12.4.2 Other team vehicles must be identified by means of "Auxiliary" plates issued by the Organisers.
12.4.3 Where space permits, "Auxiliary" vehicles may be permitted to park next to their service vehicles admitted to the parks under

12.6.8 It is recommended that the crew remains outside the car during refueling; however, should they remain inside, the safety belts
must be unfastened.
12.6.9 In the event of a breakdown, the car concerned may be pushed out of the zone without incurring a penalty. An external battery
may be used immediately after the exit of the zone.
Radio and Communications
Amateur radio is regulated in the United States under the Federal Communications Commission and follows FCC Part
97 rules and regulations.
The net control operators (Mountain Top) will be stationed in the Shelton Area.
Lee Chambers KI7SS and Paul Taylor KC7LA, will be acting as Chief of Communications during the rally events.
When a stage is HOT, ONLY the Stage Crew, Mountain Top, and Sweep are allowed on the
stage frequency. Call Mountaintop (146.50) to speak with someone on the stage.
20
Stage frequencies are:
Simplex 2 meter: 146.49 MHz; 146.58 MHz; 147.46 MHz; 147.48 MHz; 147.54 MHz
The primary simplex frequency for the Mountain Top (Control Net) will be 147.50 MHz.
All other non-safety HAM radio traffic may use any amateur radio frequency as long as it does not interfere with activities
on the above frequencies. Please be advised of the frequencies listed above and make sure there is a enough adjacent
co-channel separation not to cause interference on the any of the above frequencies before using a frequency. Also,
please abide by all FCC Part 97 Rules and Regulations and use frequencies set in the area's band plan. Please be
aware of the other area repeaters and stay clear of their input frequencies. You can purchase a repeater listing book
from SERA at http://www.sera.org or from the American Radio Relay League at http://www.arrl.org. Non-safety net
communication will not be monitored by the rally net control operators. If you have an emergency to report, then please
switch to the primary repeater frequencies and say, "Break-break," so the net control will know you have an emergency.
Please be advised, those wishing to operate on the citizens band or the family radio service band, the terrain over the
rally area is very mountainous and communication on these bands will be very limited. Also, these bands will not be
monitored by the safety net.

Competitor Relations Officer
Joe Noyes
The role of the Competitors’ Relations Officer is to inform the competitors and act as a mediator between the
competitors and the Stewards. The CRO will answer questions and provide information and clarifications in connection
