September 16th, 0551 – Addendum #3 is issued regarding Base Times & Speeds for Targa only competitors. Please pick the info up at breathalyzer this morning.
September 15th, 1204 – Two wheel off penalties have been issued to several competitors since last night’s Standings. Below are the vehicles that received penalties:
For 3-10, Champneys East: 66 – 777 – 85 – 16 – 333 – 114 – 88 – 809 – 233 – 202 – 11 – 1 – 103 – 286
For 3-11, English Harbour: 1333 – 964 – 16 – 88 – 15 – 1 – 103 – 286 – 369 – 995.
The above is due to Rule 9.6.2 in the Volume 2, Rules & Regulations document, which states:
Entrants who are observed by an official Judge of Fact cutting a corner at the apex (leaving the paved road surface) will incur a 2 minute penalty for each observed instance which will be added to their stage score. This behavior not only creates an unsafe condition for the following competitors, but it also tears up the road corners creating ill will and repair expenses to the communities that host the event.
Please complete inquiry forms if you have any issues with the above or questions for the Scorer/Clerk of the Course.
