For the purpose of ORRC series points only, legs A & B are scored as two individual rallies. The awards will be for the entire rally

The SNATR beginner instructions will be easier than the ORRC novice. There is no SNATR for leg B but you are welcome to continue in leg B with novice instructions.
The distance is for the SNATR and leg A is about 100 km and Leg B about 125 km. There is a 30 minute break between the two legs at the rest centre. There is no halfway point break in the SNATR. There is one 20 minute break in the second leg (Aurora Borealis).
Navigational rally teams a driver and navigator to find their way through the route using sometimes cryptic instructions while staying on route and on time. Checkpoints at undisclosed locations along the route record your arrival time and penalties are accessed for early or late arrival. Average speeds needed to stay on time are usually at least 10% below the posted limit. It’s not a race, it’s route finding and timing. We have two levels of instructions, beginner and novice. Beginner is perfect if you’ve never done this before. Check out the brief overview of navigational rallying and here are some sample instructions. Want to bring the kids along? That’s fine, if we know we can even print extra sets of instructions for them.
We’ve still got some Covid regulations to follow so we’re keeping contact to a minimum. We’ll try to do all the paperwork online, you will write the times on your route card from what the checkpoint tells you.
If you have people under the age of 16 in the car you’ll need:
The waivers are fillable PDF’s. You might have to print the filled form as a PDF and attach it to an email, or print it and bring it along with you. It’s a bit clunky be we do need to have copies on file for everybody in the car.
Payment: We’re trying to avoid as much contact as possible so payment by interact transfer or credit card via MotorSportReg is preferred. Credit card payments will not be processed until the competitors are confirmed at the event.
For interact send $20 (or $50) to email@example.com and use the password KWRC or something else if you prefer. If you can’t make the event we will give a full refund.
