A TSD Rally event requires Drivers & Navigators to drive their Cars and bikes along an undisclosed route marked by arrows/markings/directions along with distances mentioned in a Road Book or commonly known as a ‘Tulip Chart’. Such events, also requires each team to drive at the specified Variable Average Speeds specified in the Road Book. The Variable Average Speeds necessitates teams to be at a specified location at a particular point of time. Any delay or early arrival at a particular point along the specified route will attract penalty points and as such the team with the minimum penalty points becomes the winner. This will be monitored by Marshals, posted at secret locations who will record the timings maintained by the teams. Such Variable Average Speeds will not exceed 45 KMPH in non-Highway stretches. All this requires the teams to concentrate on identifying the route, check the route markings with the physical layout and do complicated mathematical calculations for ascertaining the correct timings. This event will provide a lot of challenge to the participants to cover long distances on different road surfaces as well changed traffic profile available in Bhubaneswar and adjacent areas in this 200-300 kms (approx..) event.
The event has been licensed by the FMSCI [ Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India]
