Finally did my first Rally. Missouri Ozark (MOR) 2022 on July 30. Would have finished 1st in 2WD if not for dumb penalty.
A couple of suggestions to help you should things like this occur again and they likely will occur. Frost or all it is not a protest. What you need to do is NOT a protest as protests and how to do them are in the rule books. You file nothing at the control if you don't agree with the time you are given. What you do is talk to the control worker or preferably the control captain and explain what you believe the correct time would be Often times agreement can be reached and your time card and log sheet correct. If you can't reach agreement you ask the worker to note on their log sheet that you disagreed with the time given. Then the next service the codriver goes on Spodity or if a small regional without that system writes an and in either case writes an inquiry that explains the situation with the details and submits it on paper or on the Spodity website.Early time control arrival. No way it was real. But we didn’t notice it and protest it at the time. So our bad.
