Observer’s report guidelines

2012

By Jordi Parro


Changes in the observer s report guidelines 2012

  • There are no changes in the 2012 Observer‘s report.

  • There are small modifications in the guidelines, due to the few changes in the 2012 FIA Regional Rallies Championships Sporting Regulations.

  • This presentation is a reminder of the changes in the regulations that affect the observer‘s report and also a clarification about some other points that have been discussed during the last year.


Supplementary regulations

Supplementary Regulations

  • The observer should check the Supplementary Regulations before the rally.

    This year the duration of the rally is 72 hrs from the beginning of the scrutineering until the posting of the Final Official Classification. If there is a Shakedown, 6 hours can be added. If there is a SuperSpecial Stage 4 hours can be added. (point. 3.4.3 Observer‘s report)

    There is not a maximum total distance for rallies

    ( point. 2.4.3 Observer‘s report)

    The closing date for entries will be maximum 7 days before the beginning of the Administrative Checkings.

    (point 3.4.3 Observer‘s report)


Supplementary regulations1

Supplementary Regulations

  • The observer should check the Supplementary Regulations before the rally.

    The list and the starting list should be sent to the FIA at least 5 days before the start of the rally.

    (Point 3.5.2 Observer‘s report)

    A printed version of the Rally Guide and Supplementary Regulations is optional. Both should be posted in the Rally Website. (Points 3.2.6 and 3.4.5 Observer‘s report)

    The Rally Guide is now mandatory also for European Cup events. (Point 3.2 Observer‘s report)


Use of internet to provide other information

Use of Internet to provide other information.

The improvement posibilities of the websites in many rallies is very high. (Point 1.6.6 Observer‘s report)

As an example, a Virtual Notice Board is very useful when the Official Notice Board is far away from the Service Park. (Point 1.1.5 Observer‘s report)

Many other information could be posted, like high definition maps, SS maps with descriptions, pictures of the spectator zones, safety videos, links to the online radio, pictures and videos of the rally, touristic information with links to hotels and transport, previous editions information, information to the press including SS restricted accesses or reserved media zones...


Changes in the observer s report guidelines 2012

In the Road Book, on road sections, the junctions to or from another SS should be identified and oncoming rally traffic should be mentioned. (Point 3.1.4 Observer’s report)Helicopter points should be mentioned. (Point 4.2.4 Observer’s report)

Road Book


Changes in the observer s report guidelines 2012

Road BookIn case of a change in the road book (e. g. with a bulletin) not only the changed indication boxes have to be shown but also the last and the first valid indication boxes have to be printed with their numbers. The changed pages should be issued in A5 to be inserted into the road book (Point 3.1.1 Observer’s Report)

Changes in the observer s report guidelines 2012

Repairs in Parc Ferme

If the scrutineers consider that the state of a car has become sufficiently defective that safety might be affected. With the permission of the chief scrutineer and in the presence of a scrutineer the car may be repaired in the parc fermé. One team member will be allowed to repair, in conformity with Appendix J, or exchange FIA homologated safety items which are included in a FIA technical list and mounted on the car (i.e.. seat belt, extinguisher, …).


Changes in the observer s report guidelines 2012

REPAIRS IN PARC FERME

Under the supervision of an authorized marshal or scrutineer, the crew and up to 3 team personnel may change the window(s).

This two articles means that a scrutineer should be always available in all parcs ferme.

(point 1.7.7 observer’s report)

Taping of spectator zones.

It doesn’t exist a color obligatory for spectator zones.

The spectator zones must be seen easily by the public.

If in a rally the spectator zones are marked with yellow tape because there are many green fields, it’s Ok.

If the spectator zones are marked with green tape because there are many dry fields, it’s Ok. (Point 4.5.3 Observer’s report)


Changes in the observer s report guidelines 2012

The green tape couldn’t be easily seen on green fields.


Changes in the observer s report guidelines 2012

Tabards

Try to use always the tabards with the colors as described in the Appendix H. (Point 4.5.2 Observer’s report)

If the colors of the tabards are different than in Appendix H, they should be described in the Supplementary Regulations.

Never use the same color for marshals and photographers.


Changes in the observer s report guidelines 2012

This are photographers, not Radio Officers !


Changes in the observer s report guidelines 2012

Official Final Classification

Includes all competitors who have started the rally. (all competitors who have completed the rally, all retired competitors – marked with “ret”, all excluded competitors marked with “exc”) (Point 3.5.3 Observer’s Report)
