Jan 2, 2020: Happy New Year. I was out yesterday doing the mileage run. What a perfect day! 1-2″ of new snow; roads not sanded yet. That’s the condition we hope for on Feb 22. One of our faithful competitors. Kathy M., suggested I do an entry list as time goes on. So I will put up a revised list under ENTRY LIST every Tuesday evening.
Also know that when you send your entry and check in, I hold the checks until the actual rally weekend.
Dec 23, 2019: Please see the new Entry form. I have added a section to ask about your cars – Turbo or Supercharged and 4WD. Please use this new form; I will email those already entered to ask the question.
Dec 13, 2019: Entry blank and info is posted.
Dec 4, 2019: Some general thoughts:
- The roads in Vermont are great! I can’t guarantee snow, but they are twisty and great to drive.
- The towns sand their roads quite well – when they are not sanded, they are really slippery!
- Using the EZ Trak ‘yellow boxes’ in some areas allows me to have a control every 8 miles on the average – and in some narrow locations.
- Those who have done WC will know that my rallies always have some ‘thinking’ legs; I believe that a rally should be more than a ‘follow the leader’ tour through the woods. The first section in WC has a couple of these legs; but you won’t get lost – the route is fail-safe. The second and third sections are very straightforward – just brisk in places. To help mitigate the ‘tricky’ legs costing too much time, there is a 50 point max penalty on the legs and competitors may drop their worst score in each section.
- NEW this year – a TOURING Class – explained as follows:
.Designed for competitors that fit the Novice Class .No Class A navigator equipment .Entrants compete on only Sections I and II – (4pm to 10 pm) .Speeds are reduced and Route Instructions are easier; the route and controls are the same . .Scoring is separate from the full WC event – (scores may not be finished that evening) .10 car maximum field – trophies for winners
