No Alibi 2013 uses the Rainier Auto Sports Club Touring General Instructions. These supplemental general instructions will serve to modify, amend, or clarify the General Instructions and can and will be amended at any time up to the time the start order is published on the Rainier Auto Sports Club web site. Any questions regarding the general instructions or supplemental general instructions should be directed to the rallymaster.
Classes are exactly as stated in the RASC General Instructions, Section D with the following amendments:
To encourage safe and legal driving in the face of unforeseen circumstances, each team may use up to six (6) Time Allowance Requests total for the rally, with a maximum of nine minutes and thirty seconds per allowance (not cumulative - 9:30 is the maximum amount). Time Allowance Request forms are provided in the route book and must contain the following information: Car number, section, mileage and amount of time requested. A Time Allowance request must be one of the following ten (10) choices (in minutes:seconds): 0:30, 1:30, 2:30, 3:30, 4:30, 5:30, 6:30, 7:30, 8:30, or 9:30. No other times will be granted except at the discretion of the rallymaster, and there must be a compelling written reason, including similar TAs submitted by other cars, in order to have a Time Allowance greater than 9:30 accepted. Thirty-second increments help to ensure that you do not drive on the same even minute as a fellow competitor; see below in the event that more than one car is on the same half-minute.
Time Allowances will be applied only to the TSD Section in which the Time Allowance Request was submitted. For example, a Time Allowance submitted for lateness in TSD Section #2 shall only apply to that section and will not be carried over into subsequent sections. Competitors are encouraged to make up lost time using slack time in subsequent Transit (TRN) sections. If lost time cannot be made up before the next TSD section and you start the TSD late, you must submit another Time Allowance Request for that section.
In the event that two or more cars find themselves on the same minute due to use of a Time Allowance, the car with the lower number will have priority and the higher numbered car(s) must choose a different Time Allowance amount.
Incomplete or illegible requests will not be honored. Time Allowance requests must be submitted when you arrive at each MTC throughout the day.
