Contestants will be asked to enter in one of these four Classes, as determined by the distance measurement and calculating devices that will be used.
Class E (Equipped)
There are no restrictions on calculating equipment in this Class. Typical calculating devices in this Class include: Alfa, Chronar, Timewise, and Zeron rally computers.
Class L (Limited)
All distance information is derived from any of the following: the vehicle’s electronic system, the vehicle’s speedometer cable, or pulses generated by the movement of the vehicle (e.g. magnets mounted to the drivetrain, of GPS devices). Calculating devices are limited to those that require manual entry of the distance information (e.g. Curta calculators, tables, laptop computers, electronic APPs, programmable and non-programmable electronic calculators). Readouts that continuously show the difference from either the perfect time or the perfect distance are prohibited.
Class S (Stock)
Any distance information used for timing calculations must be visually acquired from the vehicle’s stock, non-adjustable odometer in the stock location. Any calculating device may be used as long as the distance information from the vehicle’s stock odometer is manually entered into the device. GPS odometers may be used in this Class only if their information is NOT used for any timing calculations or for any determination of earliness or lateness.
Class G (GPS)
All distance information must be derived from a GPS source. Calculating devices may be any electronic device (e.g. Simple Rally Computer type APPs and a GPS-Pulser providing distance input to a Rally computer.
Class R (Rookie)
Neither driver nor navigator have run more than 2 time-speed-distance rallies. This Class must run with the equipment limitations of Class S (Stock).
