  3. Our next Rally is open for sign-up.

    We have a different Team concept, based on a proposal by Jack Hintz. The aim is to balance a skilled / experienced driver with a mere mortal / less experienced driver to create some interest for all.

    We will be driving the traditional Group H cars, the historic RWD cars that are popular with many of our members.
    As usual, the Stages cover a very wide range of road surfaces, countries, weather, and time of day, to make it a varied challenge.

    The Team Challenge:

    Drivers will be matched into two driver teams, but with the following restrictions to keep some fairness and balance.

    1. We will use current RDRC Driver Grades to keep teams as balanced as possible. Drivers in Grade 1 & 2 will be paired with drivers from Grade 3 & 4. If a driver does not have a current RDRC Grade, then Rally Club Directors will choose pairings based on a best estimate of grading.
    2. We will pair drivers approximately according to the order of Sign-Up, but pairings by Rally Club Directors will be final. No arguments please, we'll try to be as fair as possible.
    3. The total times for each driver will be added to determine the result for each team
    4. PLEASE sign-up as early as possible to assist the pairing process, last minute sign-ups will risk not being paired.
    5. We will still have individual results in case some drivers are not paired.
    6. Drivers in each Team do not have to drive the same car, car choice is free within the Grp H Pack.

    If requests are made for any additional timezones, or changes to Start times to better suit your local needs, we will try to include them ( but within the Monday/Tuesday periods).

    Thanks to Jack for designing this concept, and to Damien for the neat Banner.

    Good luck all, and hope we see a good roll up to support your Team mates.
  4. I've posted this Event earlier than usual, to allow us more time to arrange the Team pairings.

    Please help us as much as possible by signing up early and try not to leave your sign-up to the last few hours. If you do, there is a good chance you won't be paired with another Driver.
