Regulations*

MSA Championship Permit No: TBC

* Note these regulations are a guide only and competitor's should refer to the ASWMC Yearbook for confirmation. We will endeavour to make the website as accurate as possible, but unfortunately typos do occur and after all we are only human!

1. The Open Navigational Road Rally Championship shall be open to any Driver or Navigator, except those as defined as being eligible for the Novice Navigational Road Rally Championship, competing for separate awards. It shall consist of events run under either Road Rally or Navigational Rally permits having a minimum of 90 miles. All contenders' vehicles should comply with MSA Technical Regulations for NAVIGATIONAL ROAD RALLIES, as defined in section R of the MSA Competitors Year Book.

2. Points will be awarded to registered contenders only, according to the following table:

Relative position of championship contender 1 2 3 4 5 6
Points scored 18 15 13 12 11 10 to 15th place

Points will be awarded to both the Driver and Navigator.

3. Where two or more competitors tie for a position in the results, the competitor who has completed the greater proportion of the event from the start, without penalty, or if all incurred penalties at the same point, the competitor with the lesser penalty, shall be the winner. If a tie still exists all competitors involved in the tie shall be awarded the points for the highest place involved in the tie.

4. It is not necessary for a Driver and Navigator to remain as a team throughout the duration of the championship.

5. A perpetual award will be made to the club organising the highest marked event in the championship each year.

6. A Driver will always take the classification of his, or her, current Navigator.

Recommendations:
All championship rallies are recommended to conform to the following:
Championship rallies should conform to the following standard penalties and definitions, which should be printed, or otherwise referred to, in event Supplementary Regulations.

a) Penalties
The TIME system of marking should be used.
i) Failure to visit a Time Control \96 30 minutes
ii) Failure to visit a Route Check, Passage Control or Secret Check - 5 minutes
iii) Wrong direction of approach to, or departure from, a control or check - 5 minutes
iv) Failure to comply with route instructions by visiting a control or check more than once - 15 minutes
b) If a Passage Control is unmanned and a CODE BOARD substituted, evidence of visiting that control should be verified at the next MANNED control.
c) CODE BOARDS should be accordance with MSA R.11.3. and should be sited so as to be CLEARLY visible and readable from within a competing car without the need to stop.
d) A brief explanation of all route definition methods to be used should be notified to competitors in Supplementary Regulations / Final Instructions.
e) Organisers should state exact edition of any map to be used on an event.
f) The map reference of the next route hand out control and/or MTC, should be given as the last instruction on any route card or set of route instructions.
g) MTC's at half way and/or other rest halts, should not be sited at the 'IN' or immediately preceeding 'TIME' control, in order that competitors may make up time lost on previous section, without risk of exclusion.
h) Whenever possible secret checks should be established immediately following observed Give Way junctions.
All rallies in the championship should appoint an MSA licenced scrutineer.
An ASWMC nominated Series Scrutineer may be appointed to act as a 'Judge of Fact' to ensure compliance with any of the regulations.
i) DSO's should be appointed at events to witness behaviour at Slow signs and the use of dipped headlights.
j) A Quiet Zone (QZ) should not be permitted in a Competitive Section, unless it is less than 100metres, and it must be clearly marked. It is probably better to state that there should not be a Competitive Section on an event, if there is a QZ of more than 100metres in that portion of the event. If the QZ is 100metres or less, then this must be clearly marked on the road.

7. A maximum of 2 Senior Officials on events may claim 15 championship points each for organising an event in the Championship calendar. This claim can only be made once in a Championship year. These Officials must be named in the event regulations.

Car Sharing? After competing in my first ever Autocross at Witney last year, I'd like to compete in a couple more. Looking at the calendar and the other events I'm committed to, it looks like the Southsea event on the Isle of Wight and the Witney event again - August is going to be busy!

Does anybody fancy sharing a car for these two events? I'm sure we can sort out a "deal", anything considered. I don't have any way to prepare and store a car these days (in addition to what i already have). But I can maintain a flow of cold beers and food from my motorhome 😁

Anybody interested?
